North West Women Win Game 1 Vs Leinster CC

NW Women Vs Leinster CC 1The NW Women’s team got their season off to a winning start with a hard-fought win over Leinster CC at a blustery and bitterly cold Burndennett.

Batting first Leinster got off to a strong start with Irish internationals Amy Kenealy and Rebecca Rolfe sharing an opening stand of 59.

The introduction of Vanessa Buchanan brought immediate rewards as she had Rolfe stumped by the impressive Julie Logue for 17, and then trapped Kenealy lbw for a top score of 31.

Her Bready team mate Stephanie Wilkinson then produced a wonderful spell to put the NW on top, claiming 3 for 19 as a youthful Leinster went from 59 for 0 to 96 for 7.

Vanessa Kaleda hit an unbeaten 18, and Ellen Ridgeway made 15 as Leinster finished on 116 for 7.

The feeling at the half-way stage was that the score was about par, but the NW opening pairing of Julie Logue and Emma Allen set about their task with relish.

Former international Logue delighted the home crowd with three consecutive boundaries as she and Allen started the chase positively.

Logue had reached 23 when she was attempted one big hit too many and was bowled by Mary-Kate McLoughlin.

Allen (25) and Angie Porter (15) took the score to 76 for 1, and a comfortable win looked on the cards.

However Vanessa Kaleda had other ideas as she bowled with pace and control to take 3 for 14, and suddenly the NW were wobbling.

However, helped by the cool head of Amy Caufield (18*), and a number of extras, the NW secured a four-wicket win.

The sides are back in action today at the same venue in a T20 contest – action at Burndennett gets under way at 1.30pm
