In Game 1 the Roar put in a superb effort with the ball to restrict the Fury to 9-192 from their 50 overs. Meg Phillips starred with the ball taking 4-16 and Veronica Pyke and Heather Knight took two wickets each.

In the reply, the girls started well through Meg Phillips and Heather Knight but then lost a flurry of wickets in the middle order going from 0-45 to 7-118.

Emma Thompson was the key for the Roar, as wickets fell around her, she batted well to reach 50 from 62 balls as the Roar crept closer to the required total.

When Thompson fell just after raising her bat for a half century however it was a tense finish. Julie Hunter did her best at the tail end, making 21 but in a bid to get the side over the line was run out, the Tasmanian's falling agonisingly short by just 7 runs.

Game two saw a similar story with the Roar putting in another solid effort with the ball, Julie Hunter taking 3-21, Knight 3-46 and Meg Phillips again amongst the wickets with 2-29 to restrict the Scorpions to 8-191 from their 50 overs.

The Roar then struggled again with the bat losing wickets at regular intervals, Erin Burns’ 40 the highlight in the top order. Captain Veronica Pyke tried her best to get her side across the line but when she was dismissed for 28 the game was all but over.

The Scorpions then cleaning up the tail, Tasmania all out for 160 in the 45th over as the Scorpions booked their place in this year’s WNCL final. They will play NSW who also got a spot in the decider for the 20th consecutive year after a win against Victoria.

Meanwhile with the Cripps Roar's WNCL season ending, focus will now turn to the inaugural Women's Big Bash League which starts early December.
