Ipswich retains pennants

AN OUTSTANDING bowling and fielding performance has given Ipswich a comprehensive win over Fassifern in the Senior 1 pennants game at East Ipswich yesterday.

The home team batted first and made a solid 131, highlighted by captain Deanne Lawrie's 55.

But it was with the ball where Ipswich really dominated.

Kate Johnstone led the way with 4-24 as the home side bundled the visitors out for 61 before putting Fassifern back into bat and reducing them to 6-32 before time was called.

Lawrie said the great all-round performance from her team was reward for the hard work they had done in training.

"We were a bit worried. Originally we didn't have enough runs," Lawrie said.

"But we bowled really well and backed it up with excellent fielding. We started training in September and there is no doubt our out-fielding has improved out of sight. In the past we've bowled as well as we did today but haven't backed it up with good fielding."

The quality fielding was evident to everyone at the ground as Ipswich players held every catch and hit the stumps with monotonous regularity from the outfield.

At one point, two Fassifern batters were run out on consecutive deliveries, one from a deflection on to the stumps and the next from a direct hit from an outfield throw.

Lawrie said that type of fielding and solid bowling kept her team on top for most of the day.

"They had a few good batters we managed to get out fairly cheaply," she said.

"We expected them to get a few more runs so it was great to restrict them to such a low total.

"I thought Kirsty Crossan batted well for us ... we had a good partnership together. And Kate Johnstone bowled really well and Kylie (Henrich) also bowled well as a change bowler."

Ipswich also dominated the Senior 2 game with 8-105 before dismissing Fassifern for 50 and 46.

Nicki McDonald scored a quality 58 and was well supported by Bronwyn Brown with 18.

Anne-Marie Hermann was outstanding with the ball, taking 8-21, while Taela Brown also had a five-wicket haul.

In the under-18s, Fassifern bowled Ipswich out twice for 63 and 19 and responded with 67 and 2-19 for a solid outright win.

Fassifern also took out the under-13 girls title, winning both games for the day.
