After a surprisingly slow start to the game with the scores locked at 2 after the first 2 innings, the Emeralds pulled away scoring a further 22 runs over the next 3 innings whilst holding the opposition scoreless to run away with a mercy rule result.

โ€‹Victorian Sinead Flanigan got the start and got through 3.2 solid innings, striking out 3 and Amy Collins got to throw to a couple of batters as did World Cup debutant Katia Borgamastro.

With the bats, everyone contributed in a great team effort and Leslie Anglin was outstanding in her first opportunity going 3-3.

In the other game today Cuba had aย good win against the Dominican, opening up the pool and possibly making the path to the super round a little easier for the Emeralds.
