Albany cricketer Hannah Felton has helped South Perth win the WACA female B-grade T20 title, playing a key role in their tense super-over victory over Subiaco-Floreat on Sunday.

Felton, who has played most recently in Albany for Royals, was this month named as deputy vice-captain of the WA Country XI women’s side to contest the national championships.

In Sunday’s grand final at Richardson Park, Felton made five at the top of the order for South Perth as her side finished their 20 overs at 9-65.

Felton’s big impact came with the ball as she snared two crucial wickets, firstly bowling Emily Johnson for one and then removing Charis Bekker later on for five.

Subiaco-Floreat slumped to 9-57 after Felton took two catches off the bowling of Sarah Patman as the game remained in the balance.

The game was sent to a super over after Patman took the final wicket with Subiaco-Floreat all out for 65. Subiaco-Floreat made three runs batting first in the super over and South Perth won the title after hitting a four off the fourth ball.

Felton returned figures of 2-18 off her four overs in the initial 20 overs.

Mt Barker’s Georgie Middleton was on the losing end of the female A-grade T20 decider as Melville were beaten by South Perth.

Middleton made three runs batting at No.3 as Melville made 5-94.

South Perth secured a six-wicket win in the 18th over, Middleton returning 0-15 off three overs.
