Tasmania ended its sorry campaign in Canberra at the hands of a ruthless Victoria.

But star Riverside keeper Emma Manix-Geeves and talented South Launceston all-rounder Courtney Webb did their part on Wednesday to preserve state pride at the female under-18 national championship.

Manix-Geeves top-scored with a steady 35 from 68 balls while Webb added a further 27 off 55 to the batting card.

The good mates were the only Tassie batters to surpass double figures, as rest of the side succumbed to just 103.

Victoria raced its way to the target in just 16.4 overs and did so without losing a single wicket.

Annabel Sutherland – the daughter of Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland – made her mark with 46 off 56 balls to show the genes run in the family when brother Will made his first Victorian senior debut this season after turning his back on a possible future AFL career.

Victorian captain Nicole Faltum finished the job in hitting a run-a-ball 47.
