BUCKS CC U13 girls overcame Oxfordshire at Farnham Common CC in their final league match of the season, winning by four wickets after restricting their opponents to 112-9.
Martha Manktelow (Stony Stratford) got the first of her four wickets for eight runs in six overs to rein in Oxon’s good start and only a sixth wicket partnership rescued them at 52-5.
The five other wickets were taken by Chesham pair Anna Harris and Anna Nicholls, Ley Hill debutant Jenny Hughes, and Great Kingshill duo Steph Weston and Caitlin Free (captain).
Anna Nicholls (30) and Anna Harris (23) opened the batting and put on a rapid 53 before Harris was out caught and bowled.
Megan Woodward (Bledlow) added a steady 15 runs, partnered by Nicholls, Free (two) and keeper Erin Pickard (seven), of Chenies and Latimer.
Player of the match Martha Manktelow then joined Pickard at the crease, adding eight runs before being
dismissed and Bethany Wagge (nine not out), of High Wycombe, was there at the close with Weston, who scored the winning run from the only ball she faced.
