North London’s women remain top and unbeaten after victorious double-header
North London’s women remain top of the table and unbeaten after winning both games in their double-header at home against Totteridge Millhillians on Sunday.
Asked to bat in the first match, NL lost regular wickets but Middlesex Under-15 player Cerys Walker (53) hit her maiden half-century, while Irene Craik and Amie Douglas also chipped in with useful runs, as the hosts reached 102-9 after their allotted 20 overs.
The bowlers then took control when Totteridge replied, with Miranda Cook hitting the stumps four times in her opening two overs, and the visitors eventually fell 45 runs short.
North London again batted first in the second clash and this time Maia Harris – another of the club’s county age group players – took control, blasting an unbeaten 102 to take her team to an imposing total of 172-2.
NL then took early wickets again and, although Bea Barendilla led a fightback, the bowlers kept their discipline and restricted Totteridge to 73-5.
