Queensland Women (QLD-W) further consolidated their position at the top of the table in the ongoing WNCL 2022 as they picked up their 4th consecutive win with an eight-wicket mauling of ACT Meteors at the Gold Coast on Monday, October 03.

The win was set-up by a disciplined and relentless bowling attack-led by left-arm orthodox Jess Jonassen, who registered sensational figures of 7-3-5-2.

Batting first, the ACT Meteors never really got going as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals.

Georgia Prestwidge (2/17 in 4.4) and Courtney Grace Sippel (2-27 in 5) did the early damage as they removed ACT's top-3 to leave them reeling at 31/3 in the 8th over.

ACT could never recover from those body-blows, and things got even worse in the middle-overs as Jonassen and co applied a relentless choke.

They were eventually dismissed for 132 in 37.4 overs.

Georgia Redmayne spearheaded the run-chase for QLD-W

Chasing 133, Queensland Women got off to a sensational start as the opening pair of Georgia Redmayne (62* off 68) and Georgia Voll (35 off 45) wiped off 83 runs from the target in just over 15 overs.

Voll was eventually dismissed for 35 by Olivia Porter, bur Redmayne continued to go with her merry way, smashing 11 fours in her unbeaten 68-ball 62.

She got good support from Ellie Johnston, who scored a run-a-ball 23 before being dismissed by Annie Wikman.

However, Redmayne stayed till the end to help Queensland Women claim a comprehensive 8-wicket win.

ACT Meteors 132/10 (37.4)
