The BSE Dragons Intermediate Girls Cricket team defended their State Title by defeating McKinnon Secondary College by eight runs in a high quality game.
BSE easily won their semi final against Bickley Park in the morning with Ally Van Dalen and Carly Thomas starring with the bat, and all ten bowlers used, dominating the batters.
The final was a different story, with McKinnon's state player batting through the innings and then removing our top order batters. Jess Smith was the rock around which BSE scored 95 runs from their twenty overs, with Carly Thomas again playing a great innings. Our bowlers again stood up with Tayla Edsall-French, Steph Connell and Beth McDonald all doing a great job to restrict the McKinnon batters and regularly take wickets.
For a number of the girls this was their third cricket state title! Well done to all squad members who all contributed to BSE being crowned the Victorian Champions for 2013
