Midland-Guildford Wins Female A-Grade Flag
26 March 2017  

Midland-Guildford have won back-to-back Female A-Grade 50-over competition premierships after defeating South Perth in Sunday’s Grand Final at Richardson Park.

The triumph completes a successful season for the Swans, who also lifted the Female A-Grade T20 title in February.

South Perth had finished as minor premiers in the 50-over competition but Midland-Guildford stepped up on the big stage.

Midland-Guildford had sent South Perth in to bat, with the hosts bowled out for 157 in the 50th over.

In reply, the Swans cruised to victory in 32.2 overs with six wickets in hand.

The Swans also trumped South Perth in the T20 decider in similar circumstances.

The triumph caps a strong year where Chloe Piparo, Bhavi Devchand and Taneale Peschel were the stars.
