Parramatta have won their 3rd Brewer Shield Premiership after defeating Sydney at Birchgrove Oval.
Batting first Parramatta got off to a great start with a 90 run opening partnership between Kate Pelle (62) and Vaishnavi Deobhankar (28) setting a perfect platform for their team. Coming in at number 3 Sophia Mavros continued the fine start with 38 runs before regular wickets saw the runs slow before Parramatta finished with 9/196 off their 50 overs. Daisy Webster, Leilani Veitch and Laura Metry all took two wickets for Sydney.
In reply, Sydney got off to a horror start slumping to 3/5. A 53 run partnership between Sonya Kalachian (55) and Grace Bryson-Smith (31) settled the ship before a 57 run partnership between Kalachian and Hayley Zauch (34) had Sydney poised to challenge Parramatta's total. However a superb spell of bowling from Parramatta's Alexandra Mavros finished off the Sydney innings with the Tigers losing their final 4 wickets for just 2 runs to be dismissed for 164, 33 runs short of victory.
Parramatta's Alexandra Mavros was named the Player of the Final for her match winning bowling figures of 4/14 off 8.3 overs.
