West of Scotland were well represented at the third Wee Bash tournament of the Winter at Tollcross International Swimming Centre on Sunday 9th December.
West fielded two sides: West of Scotland and the combined WoS/Glasgow University teams. Both sides went unbeaten until the two teams met in the final.
The West of Scotland/Glasgow University side started with a close game. Harriet took a wicket with her first ball after taking the sport up only last month. The team won on the penultimate ball of the game as three sixes from Lauren in the final over kept the chase on.
The combined team went on to win their other three group games with brilliant all round contributions from Nadia and Maisie supported by Emily N with the ball and Emily W: Saving crucial runs with some fine work behind the stumps.
Meanwhile, in the other group, West of Scotland were dominant; winning all of their games comfortably. Thank you to Maisie (Carlton CC) and Niamh (Dumfries CC) who played as guest players alongside Nayma, Moon, Charlotte and Georgie. All contributed to the team's success.
The two teams met in the final with the Glasgow Uni/West of Scotland unbeaten in every Wee Bash so far!
After posting a reasonable score, followed by a couple of big wickets it looked as though WoS/GU would continue their impressive unbeaten run. However, it was not to be. West of Scotland hit back. Maisie, a guest player, hit 23 runs to chase down the total.
Thank you to Cricket Scotland for hosting the event and the club looks forward to four further tournaments in the New Year.
