A half-century from Leah Poulton has led the New South Wales Breakers to a commanding nine-wicket victory over the Western Fury in their Women's National Cricket League Twenty20 encounter on Sunday.
The Breakers completed a clean sweep of three wins over the Fury this weekend, extending their winning run to nine matches in total.
Looking to better the Fury's first-up 7-96 at Blacktown on Sunday morning, the Breakers cruised home in their run chase, finishing on 1-99 off just 12.1 overs.
Poulton proved the match winner in this encounter, blasting an unbeaten 52 from 32 deliveries, her innings including seven fours and a six.
She was ably assisted by Nicola Carey, who struck 31 off 26 balls while Alyssa Healy was the only batter to fall, going for 16 off 15 as Heather Graham (1-20) took the lone wicket for the Fury.
It was something of an all-round effort for Graham, though, as she top scored for the Western Australians as well, posting 26 off 38 balls.
But wickets fell too frequently for the Fury and their only meaningful partnership was a fifth-wicket stand of 28 between Graham and Carla Hunter (13 off 27).
