Cougars get league season off to a winning start
By Gordon Sparke
A great performance ends with a tense finish
The Cougars batting first made really positive start with Tasha B & Tilly being 36 without loss after 5 overs. Tasha went on to retire at 30 not out. Good contributions from Isabella, Tash C and Abbie kept the scoreboard ticking over with a good burst of runs at the end from Charlotte giving the Girls a respectable total of 109 off 20 overs.
The Cougars replied with some really tight bowling from Tash C, Tash B and Tilly who took 3 wickets. The Wendover batting struggling to reach 37 for 5 off 10 overs. The match appearing to be in the bag midway through the Wendover reply. However a really strong fight back from their middle order saw the game slipping away from this winning position. With Wendover requiring only 8 runs to win off the last 3 overs the Girls were up against it. However, some excellent bowling from Tash C and Isabella saw us home. Tash C finishing with figures of 2 for 8 off 4 overs and Isabella bowling 2 maiden overs at the end giving the Girls a hard fought win by 5 runs.
