The 2012 International Youth Cup wrapped up today with Australian U19 Women’s Green winning the Women’s division.
Australian U19 Women’s Green (U19 Green) claimed top of the table honours following the round games and continued their good form to meet the Australian U17 Women’s Squad (Aus U17) in the grand final game.
U19 Green got off to the perfect start scoring four runs in the opening innings thanks to some attacking baserunning from Karla Davidson and Nicola Maitland.
Jessica Meyer kept the U19 Green run tally ticking in the bottom of the fourth after a single batted in Mikaela Mahony and Davidson for her second run of the game. Another run came off the bat of Bianca Abrahams in the same innings.
Aus U17 put up a gallant fight recording five hits, but could not capitalise as U19 Green restricted their scoring potential as the game finished 7-0.
U19 Green showed great defensive pressure throughout the tournament letting through just a total of 9 runs.
Newly appointed Aussie Pride Head Coach Shane Hughes has seen his squad in action for the first time as he prepares for the ISF X Junior Women’s World Championships in July 2013.
