Pink Panthers supreme in final

The Pink Panthers continued their domination of the Cootamundra Ladies Eights cricket carnival on Saturday, winning their seventh straight title in emphatic fashion.

The girls won all three of their pool matches in the preliminary round in convincing style before facing Mitchell Park pool winners Here for Beer in the final.  

Here for Beer was asked to bat first and made the lowest score in Ladies Eights finals history; restricted to just 20 runs off their eight overs.

Batting for the Pink Panthers, the Maher sisters Kate and Lyn peeled off the required runs in under four overs, finishing at 0/28.

In total, eight teams took part in the carnival with most players from Cootamundra and Canberra, Yass, Hillston, Wombat, and Lake Cargelligo also represented. 

Brendan Gale and Adam Twyford umpired and scored at Mitchell Park, while John Murray assisted with umpiring at Albert Park.

Tom Smith, Ben Rumble and Malachi Murray, all 13, shared scoring duties for the seven matches at Albert Park.

The carnival was sponsored by Cricket NSW for the seventh time.
