WOMEN'S cricket team Potters Bar Fillies returned to winning ways after suffering reversals against Bishop's Stortford and Totteridge with a comfortable win over Hampstead at The Walk on Sunday.
Skipper Debbie Palmer had no hesitation in asking the visitors to have a bat after winning the toss, choosing to open the bowling with sisters Hannah and Charlotte Sayers.
Hampstead made a slow start and lost early wickets.
The North London side were struggling at 31- 4 after 11 overs.
A spirited stand of 29 for the fifth wicket suggested Hampstead might make a half decent total, but tight bowling and sharp fielding restricted the visitors to what seemed to be a below par final tally.
With a required run rate of only three per over, the total didn't seem to be too much of an ask.
However, with the weather deteriorating, the Fillies lost their top four batters cheaply and at one stage were languishing on 19-4.
A timely captain's innings of 23 not out, ably supported by Lorett Bredenkamp and Tracey Sayers secured the victory.
The Fillies next entertain Under-hill Ladies at The Walk on Sunday, starting at 9.30am.
