Victoria Spirit has jumped to the top of the WNCL ladder with a 49 run-victory over the Southern Scorpions on Saturday. It shares the lead on points with the Scorpions but holds top position by virtue of a better run rate (0.912 v 0.709).[an error occurred while processing this directive]The Spirit won the toss and batted first, reaching 154 for 9 off its 50 overs. Brooke McFarlane top scored with 51 off 99 balls, sharing stands of 56 with Louise Broadfoot (35) and 39 with Cathryn Fitzpatrick (18).Karen Rolton was easily the pick of the Scorpion bowlers with 3 for 18 off 10 while Heather Booth took 2 for 19 off 6 and Olivia Magno 1 for 22 off 5.The Scorpions struggled against some tight bowling to be all out in the 44th over for 105, handing the Spirit a valuable bonus point. Shelley Nitschke ground out 27 off 110 balls while Rolton, with 26 off 42, was the only other batter to reach double figures.The last 6 wickets fell for the addition of only 24 runs. Broadfoot had a good all-round game with 3 for 16 off 7.4 overs and was well backed by Jane Franklin with 2 for 11. Clea Smith and Shannon Young also picked up a wicket each.The Scorpions need to win in Sundays match (and hope that the NSWIS Blues falter against the winless Western Fury) to stand any chance of playing in the final. Meanwhile, the Spirit looks all but assured of hosting this season's final.Courtesy: Courtesy: Women's Cricket Update Calver Bronwyn (Bronwyn.Calver@dotars.gov.au)
