Sophie Parkin and the Greater Northern Raiders' bowling attack are ready to build momentum right out of the break.
Outside of an outstanding century from Australian batter Nicola Carey (138), the Raiders only allowed 127 runs from a talent-loaded North Hobart squad on Sunday.
Parkin said in December a focus for her going into the break would be to claim more one-day wickets.
She certainly did this against the Demons, collecting 4-36 as the only Raider to bowl 10 overs.

"It was quite warm conditions but I picked up early ... I got [Taylah] Purton out early and I was happy get Naomi Stalenberg," Parkin said.
"I was happy to just be bowling good lengths, and against Nic Carey I think I bowled quite well early, then I went off, and came back when she was seeing the ball like it was a beach ball."
Parkin said she studied the tape in preparation to face national and BBL calibre players such as Stalenberg.
