However, the Spirit contributed 40 sundries to the Scorpions tally, including 28 wides while 6 bowlers each took one wicket.The Spirit's reply was looking comfortable at 54 for 3 but when three wickets fell for one run the match turned in the Scorpion's favour. A 33-run stand for the 9th wicket (between Jane Franklin and Megan Foster) looked promising but the Spirit was all out for 114 in the 49th over. Franklin top scored with 27 while Mel Jones (23), Megan Foster (16) and Belinda Clark (11) all chipped in.Britt had a fine all-round game with 2 for 15 off 10 and two catches to be player-of-the-match. Left-arm spinner Shelley Nitschke opened the bowling and took 2 for 18 off 10 while Magno (2 for 22 off 10) and Rolton (2 for 23 off 6.1) were also successful.The Scorpions has now completed its round matches while its nearest rivals, the Spirit and the NSWIS Blues, each have two matches remaining (against the Queensland Fire and the Western Fury, respectively).Mathematically, all but the Western Fury stand a chance of reaching the final.Southern Scorpions 8 matches 5 wins 4 bonus points = 34 pointsVictoria Spirit 6 matches 4 wins 3 bonus points = 27 pointsNSWIS Blues 6 matches 4 wins 0 bonus points = 24 pointsQueensland Fire 6 matches 3 wins 1 bonus point = 19 pointsWestern Fury 6 matches 0 wins 0 bonus points = 0 pointsCourtesy: Women's Cricket Update Calver Bronwyn (Bronwyn.Calver@dotars.gov.au)
