Having beaten Frampton last week by a convincing 40 runs at the Bentham Dome, the Women’s Soft Ball Cricket team went one better tonight by beating Dumbleton by 49.
Newent lost the toss and were put in to bat, scoring 311 runs in their 12 overs with the loss of only 1 wicket. Dumbleton were always going to find it a challenge to pass that total and so it proved, as our ladies bowled and fielded with real determination, commitment and accuracy. At the close, Dumbleton were off the pace and finished on 262 giving Newent their second successive win and 2 out of the 3 played. The last game in the League series will be against Westbury on Friday 9 February, with everything to play for.
This week’s team was Vicki Hughes, Liz Lacy, Amy Washington, Kate Phillips, Ella Wallace and Izzy Henson. Well done, everyone!
