Tasmania’s bowlers have been severely punished in their opening clash of the women’s national under-18 championships on Monday.
Queensland had hit of its campaign in Bendigo with a comfortable 51-run victory after never letting the Tasmanians settle from the outset.
Ex-Riverside talent and state captain, Sophie Parkin, was forced to use all 10 possible bowlers in the Twenty20 as their rivals hit up 5-152.
Only the last-choice Amy Smith had any sort of an impact, earning 3-26 off her four overs.
The North Hobart part-time trundler had only been brought on when the red-hot Queenslanders past 100 and lost just the one wicket after the 12th over.
Chasing a tough 7.65 runs per over to pull off a victory, Launceston opener Stacey Norton-Smith belted 14 off 16 balls before losing her wicket.
Tassie lost its way in the middle overs, falling from 1-39 to 5-69 in the process.
Parkin’s once Blues teammate, Emma Manix-Geeves, looked to steer the side back on track from No.7 with an unbeaten 21 from 19 balls.
Tasmania meets Victoria Metro next on Tuesday.
