Date of Event : Thu Feb 23, 2017 9:36AM

Gordon has ensured it stays at the top of the McDonald's Women's Premier Cricket ladder with another comprehensive victory again led by Captain and run-machine Hannah Trollip.

Trollip dispatched the Bankstown Sports bowlers to the tune of 104 runs (her second century in all formats this year).

Trollip's innings came from 135 balls and included six boundaries as Gordon posted 9-231 from its 50 overs. This was despite losing 7-40 in the middle and lower order as Rachel Dick (4-49) and Erin Burns (3-34) who kept Bankstown Sports in the contest with some accurate bowling.

Earlier, Trollip was supported in the top order by Sydney Sixers squad member Emily Leys (34) and Saskia Horley (41).

In reply, Bankstown Sports was only able to manage 154 in 47.5 overs.

Rachel Dick led the way with a patient 54 from 112 balls to go with her four wickets.

Unfortunately she was not supported in the batting department as only two other batters managed double figures.

Shannon Heath (3-12 from six overs) and Isabella Fitzgibbon (3-29 from 10 overs) were the destroyers for Gordon.

At Glenn McGrath Oval, Universities pulled off a four-wicket win over St George-Sutherland on the back of 46 from Rachel Li.

Earlier on, St George-Sutherland had been dismissed for a modest 127 after an even bowling effort by the students.

Sydney Thunder squad member Maisy Gibson finished with 2-21 and was supported by no less than five other bowlers who collected a wicket each.

There was never much doubt in the result depsite Universities losing wickets fairly regularly.

Li's 46 anchored the innings and despite being dismissed before the winning runs were struck, she played an important role for her side.

The students recorded the win by four wickets in the 37th over.

An imposing century from Claire Koski was not enough for Campbelltown-Camden to hold off Sydney Rangers, with Rachael Haynes scoring a matching hundred.

Thunder squad member Koski made 124 in just 110 balls with 13 fours and three sixes  as Campbelltown-Camden reached 4/271 from 50 overs at Raby Oval Number One. However Haynes, a Lendlease Breakers veteran, made 108 from just 81 balls with eight fours and five sixes as Rangers reached 4-272 in just 39.5 overs to win by six wickets.

Penrith had the bye.
