Dumfries Women – runners-up at Glasgow

Dumfries Cricket Club’s Women’s team were finalists again on Sunday at the Cricket Scotland Women’s Indoor Sixes Tournament in Glasgow. However this time they lost out to Edinburgh University in a high scoring match to finish runners-up.

A big entry with nine teams from around Scotland meant some frenetic Twenty20 cricket, here just twenty ball innings. In their group games Dumfries beat St Andrews University and Edinburgh Ladies to draw Stirling County in the semi-finals.

Stirling batted first and a crucial reaction catch by Sue McBride off Sue Jeffrey removed Scotland keeper Jack to help restrict the opposition to 24. However two wickets meant that skipper Sue Strachan had to find eight runs off the last four balls – reached with one ball left.

That meant another tussle with Edinburgh University. This time the University got off to a flyer rapidly passing thirty with some early boundaries. Rosy Ryan put the brakes on conceding just three runs but despite a run out by Kirsty Strachan the last two balls went for six and four for an imposing total of 52/1.

That gave the batters too much to do and lacking a similar number of boundaries the side finished eight runs short on 44/1 with Rachel Howard and Rosy Ryan not out and Kirsty Strachan top scorer. The Parkdale Garage Dumfries Player of the Tournament went to Rosy Ryan for her bowling performance.
