Tasmania has got off to a winning start in its 50-over campaign on Sunday at the resumption of the national under-18 championships.
Captain Sophie Parkin led her side from the front in the female clash against Northern Territory in Ballarat.
But it was the state’s batters that gave the opening bowler a par target to defend.
Tasmania went on to score 145, but were still bowled out early in just 37.1 overs.
North Hobart’s Amy Smith patiently racked up 27 in 56 balls, but only found makeshift support from Grace Molnar (14), Clare Scott (14) and Bonnie Davies (13).
The Territorians reached 3-81, but second spells from Davies first and then Parkin decimated the run chase.
Kingborough’s Davies (3-26) picked up two key breakthroughs in the middle-order before Ex-Riverside’s Parkin (3-14) ripped through the tail with two to finish the game.
Parkin, who clean bowled all her victims on Sunday, has now taken eight wickets this championships at 17.12.
