Central Coast have rebounded strongly in the McDonald’s Country Championship U19 Female championship recording two victories on Day 2. The Bradman Cup side however suffered a second consecutive loss going down to ACT Southern Districts.

It was a great show of character from the U19 Female side who rebounded strongly after a disappointing Day 1 performance against Riverina.

In the opening match this morning Central Coast defeated Newcastle by 8 wickets after a strong fielding performance saw them restrict Newcastle to 2/58 off their 20 overs. In reply an opening partnership of 53 between Grace Dignam, 24 and Emily Cross 21 not out ensured the Coast side was able to achieve the required target with 21 balls to spare.

The afternoon game against Greater Illawarra saw the Central Coast again field first and an inspired bowling spell from Piper Hooke 3/12 off 4 overs had Greater Illawarra on the back foot before Cross did the damage at the end of the innings taking 3/9 off 4 overs with her off spinners. Greater Illawarra ended up with a competitive 7/80 off their 20 overs.

In the run chase captain Dignam was again supreme leading from the front scoring 40 not out and guiding the team to a nine wicket victory with 3 overs to spare. Emily Humphreys offered great support finishing unbeaten on 18.

Tomorrow Central Coast will play Western in the morning before finishing with another T20 match in the afternoon.

Central Coast opened their Under 19 Female Country Championship campaign with a 63 run loss to Riverina at Raymond Terrace.

Overnight and early morning rain saw the match move to a synthetic pitch.

Riverina won the toss and batted and they started well reaching 3/82 in the 40 over match before Central Coast hit back taking the last seven wickets for just 21 runs to see Riverina dismissed for 103 in the 37th over. The total was greater than it seemed due to the very slow outfield which saw just one boundary hit. Sophie Shelley and Piper Hooke did an excellent job with the new ball taking 3/17 and 2/12 respectively whilst Emily Humphreys took 2/25 with her off spinners.

Taking to the crease the Central Coast struggled to handle the excellent swing bowling from the Riverina new ball bowlers and slumped to 5/7 before being eventually dismissed for 40 in the 27th over. Molly Kidd topscored with 10.

The championships move into T20 mode tomorrow with the Central Coast playing Newcastle in the morning and Greater Illawarra in the afternoon.
