The Ben Venue cricket team travelled to Moree to play their round four match in the PSSA knockout competition last Thursday, May 9.
Ben Venue captain Sophie Parsons won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Moree batted steadily in the opening overs and it took until the ninth over before Ben Venue struck with Taj Killen taking an overhead catch off the bowling of Sophie Parsons.
The following over saw the second wicket fall after Baxter Williams took a clever catch off the bowling of Jackson Taylor.
Moree went to the 13-over drinks break with a modest score of 2-38.
After the drinks break Ben Venue bowler Hugo Fittler had Moree's third wicket when James Hunt took another catch that had been skied towards square leg.
The Moree batsmen then undertook a batting revival and began playing their shots and pushing the scoreboard along steadily.
After 25 overs Moree had reached a tidy total of 3-97 with both C. Cooper scoring 34 and M. Beoddos 17 not out.
Best bowlers for Ben Venue were Sophie Parsons 1-8 off four overs, Jackson Taylor 1-12 off five and Hugo Fittler 1-12 off three.
Ben Venue began their innings with Jackson Taylor and Jared Frost opening the batting against some tight Moree bowling.
Both batters looked to capitalise by scoring off any loose balls and guided the Ben Venue innings to 0-48 off 13 overs at drinks.
At the 17th over, Frost took it upon himself to really push the run rate and did so with some great shots.
Taylor also began to play more shots and it was the quick chasing of runs that eventually saw Taylor run out for 14 after an opening partnership of 70 runs.
This brought Sophie Parsons to the crease to join Jared Frost.
Both batters continued to push the ball around and run hard on every shot which eventually found Frost also run out for 38 in the pursuit of quick runs.
Alex Harris joined Parsons at the crease and the pair were able to guide Ben Venue to a winning total of 98 with 10 balls to spare.
Parsons remained eight not out and Harris on two not out.
The Ben Venue cricket team will now enjoy the winter sports season before resuming their PSSA cricket campaign in early October.
