BROCKHAMPTON Ladies started their league campaign with an eight-wicket victory against Berkswell.

Dannie McQueen won the toss and elected to field. Berkswell openers frustrated our bowlers initially and scored steadily with well taken singles. Eventually Brock ladies broke the deadlock and the wickets began to tumble at regular intervals. Wickets came from debutant Evie Graff with figures (3-31), Gabi Ferreria and Georgina Williams who bowled very economical finishing with figures of (1-21).
Berkswell finished their innings on 159-6 off 30 overs

The chase from Brockhampton Ladies started slowly with the openers Chloe Tingle and Evie Graff carefully navigating the somewhat inconsistent bowling from the opposition.

Then came the game changing partnership as Georgina Williams joined Tingle in the middle, both experienced players who have been selected for Central Sparks emerging player program this season.

Boundaries flowed at regular intervals to relieve pressure and the target was coming ever closer. It wasn’t until the last over that Brock sealed the win with Tingle finishing on an excellent crafted 60no and Williams 32 no.
