The Tasmanian Tigers Women's team has fallen to a second WNCL defeat in Brisbane, going down to last season's runner-up Queensland by 101 runs today.
The Tigers spun their way back into the game with the ball with Sasha Moloney (4/37), Maisy Gibson (3/36) and Sam Bates (3/42) accounting for all 10 Fire wickets.
The hosts were on track for a big total as they surpassed 120 in just the 17th but when Laura Harris was stumped by Emma Manix-Geeves off Gibson, the Tigers found their groove to snare the remaining seven wickets for just 115 runs in 32 overs.
241 was the Tigers' target but the run chase never really got going. Yesterday's top scorer, number Corinne Hall, fell inside the fifth over and five wickets had been lost with the score at just 55.
Resistance was offered in the middle-lower order through captain Brooke Hepburn (25), Erin Fazackerley (22) and Emma Manix-Geeves who faced the second-most deliveries of any Tigers batter in her second game.
When Manix-Geeves fell, a 21-run partnership for the 10th wicket between Bates (6*) and Belinda Vakarewa 14 (19) closed the game.
Several Tigers players will now switch into Hobart Hurricanes purple and play a series of WBBL warm-up matches on the Sunshine Coast against the Brisbane Heat before returning home on Friday night.
