RMDCC Women’s B grade team made a breakthrough win in limited overs season.

ROCKINGHAM-Mandurah District Cricket Club’s (RMDCC) women played one woman down last Sunday and still managed to take down the University B Grade team at James Oval in Nedlands.

The women’s B Grade team, aged 15 to 50 years old, shone with both bat and ball and with some outstanding teamwork.

Fielding first, all bowlers managed to take at least one wicket each dismissing University in less than the allowed 40 overs for a total of 136.

With the loss of only four wickets they managed to chase the 137 runs needed to take their maiden win.

RMDCC female’s batting charge was led by eldest player Eleanor Britton (50) with 47 runs – the vital winning runs being scored by one of the youngest Soniya Yadav (16) scoring 39 not out.

The team only needed 27.5 of their 40 overs to roll the competition.
