SOUTH LAUNCESTON cantered to victory over WESTBURY in Cricket North women round three.
Although Duckworth-Lewis was required to confirm the win after rain curtailed the Shamrocks' reply, it was never in doubt after the hosts posted a massive 2-214 from their 20 overs.
Having scored six runs to date in all competitions, Ellie Mathews made up for lost ground, smashing an unbeaten 83 off 57 deliveries including seven fours.
Fellow opener Amy Duggan matched her number of boundaries in a quickfire 45 off 24 before Caitlyn Webster (36 off 28) joined Mathews in a 98-run unbeaten stand.
In reply, Westbury reached 3-33 off 10.5 with Tori Davis the only batter breaking double figures before the elements won the day at the NTCA No.2.
Ashlee Scott took 2-14.
LAUNCESTON were equally dominant against MOWBRAY at Invermay Park.
Figures of 4-5 off four overs by Claire Alexander were largely responsible for the Eagles being bowled out for 52 in the 17th over.
Only two batters reached double figures as six recorded ducks.
The only batter on the day to record multiple boundaries, Cassie Blair top scored with 14 before being caught and bowled by Charlotte Layton who finished with 3-9.
Emma Elliott also took 2-2 off 10 deliveries.
The Knights comfortably ran down the total in just 7.3 overs.
Opener Emma Humphries made 11 and Amy Pereira 10 not out as they reached the total for the loss of three wickets.
Paige Gibson was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2-33 off four overs.
RIVERSIDE had the bye.
Mathews' big innings catapulted her up to second among the CN run-scorers behind Launceston's Ianthe Boden (92).
Unsurprisingly, the Knights have five of the top nine leading run-scorers in the competition.
Alexander's exceptional figures see her top the wicket-taking statistics with six from three games - twice as many as any other bowler.
One of five Lions among the top six wicket-takers, Alexander has a bowling average of 6.17 and an economy of just 3.36.
However, the best average belongs to her teammate Elliott with the rather impressive 1.00.
With two wins each, South and Launceston top the ladder on eight points followed by Riverside on four with Westbury and Mowbray yet to record a point.
However, South have the bye this weekend opening the door for Launceston to claim top spot with victory over Westbury.
Mowbray will be looking for their first victory of the campaign when they visit Riverside who are coming off the bye.
