Meanwhile, in round five of the Hedland First National Women’s Cricket competition saw the Shooting Stars blast their way to a record-setting 184 runs.

Zoe Campbell was the stand out batter with a quick-fire 47 from just 21 deliveries, including seven fours and two sixes.

Comets would rue their wayward bowling, giving up 47 extras while Kirsty Kubala and Stacey Allen both had cameos of 36 and 24, respectively.

Shooting Stars dismissed both of Comets openers early in their innings, leaving the Comets in a dire position on 2-6.

Sarah Miller smashed 25 runs from 20 balls to give Comets a chance, but it proved too little to late with the side losing to the Stars by 59 runs with a final score of 6-125.

The Stars made regular changes to their bowlers with eight bowlers contributing, with Kristy Morgan and Bree Wilson both took two wickets apiece.
