Down To the Wire Finishes in Round 5 of the NPL

Tensions were high and spectators heads were swivelling between both grounds at Jansen Park as each match ended in nail biting finishes on Sunday.

Power were looking to continue with their winning form which has seen them sitting at the top of the table when they took on the Sonic.  Setting a respectable total of 204 off their 40 overs,  with Power's top scorers putting forward almost identical performances - Kerry Tomlinson achieving 45 off 52 balls and Samoan Captain Regina Lili'I adding 47 off 51 balls, both batsman stumped by Holly Topp off a ball from Anna Petersen. Petersen's figures of 3/11 off her 4 overs were typical of her form to date in the competition, bringing her total number of wickets to 9.   

Sonic's chase was marred with their top order batsmen failing to put forward any threat, until Samantha Curtis took to the crease and put in an inspiring 111 off just 72 balls and hung on to win the game.   Her fellow batting partners failed to florish, and as her teammates were dispatched around her by a determined bowling attack, Curtis and Charlotte Sarsfield (no 11) were left to finish the 11 run chase with 8 overs remaining.  Sarsfield bravely faced 14 balls to assist Curtis in achieving the win for the Sonic. 


Curtis and Petersen, watched on by a visiting White Ferns Coach Haidee Tiffen, have had their good form rewarded by earning a call up to the Rose Bowl Series against Australia, replacing an injured Sophie Devine. 

Meanwhile Velocity were also putting in a determined chase of Galaxy's 225, the highest score to date for the girls in purple.  Former White Fern and Northern Spirit long-term player Nicola Browne showed she hasn't lost her form, top scoring with 66 off  59 balls.  Browne, who returned from retirement for a one off feature in the competition, was composed in her performance for the Galaxy, knocking 7 fours and 2 sixes before being dismissed by a catch from 14 year old Nensi Patel off a ball by Alisha Rout.  Velocity Captain Natalie Dodd once again proved herself as a clinical batsman, with a controlled century (102 off 97 balls) the feature of the run chase.  Velocity could not hold on until the finish, losing their final 5 wickets across 2 overs finishing on 215 in the 38th over and rewarding Galaxy with their first win of the competition.
