It's beginning to look a lot like summer and our teams have moved on from battling the rain to keeping hydrated in the heat. It's time to take a look at the weekly results from around the grounds.
A bit of a miserable return from the bye round for first grade - after winning the toss and choosing to bat, things went downhill quite quickly with opener Erica James dismissed for a duck in the first over. Zoe Benjamin (13) and Frankie Nicklin (17) held on a bit longer, but weren't able to up the scoring rate. Claire Brown (20) and Samantha Robinson (20) made a late charge, but Universities concluded their innings at 7/97. In reply, Cambelltown-Camden didn't lose a wicket on their way to amassing the total in less than 15 overs to take the game. Madeline Case (0/16) was economical, but none of the bowlers were able to break through and take a wicket.
First Grade: Universities (7/97) lost to Campbelltown-Camden (0/98) by 10 wickets
Second Grade: Universities (6/54) lost to Campbelltown-Camden (4/139) by 85 runs
Third Grade: Universities (7/60) lost to Campbelltown-Camden (2/166) by 106 runs

Chris Tremain (3/92) was the pick of the bowlers, supported by Thomas Scoble (2/23) and Hayden McLean (2/59). Suffan Hassan and Hayden McLean will resume with the bat this weekend and look to dig UNSW out of some trouble.

A heavy loss for the Raiders men this week, who were unable to match it with their Sydney Uni archrivals on this occasion. They will be looking for some redemption this weekend as they take on the Wollongong Mustangs and look to get their season back on track. Meanwhile the Raiders women enjoyed a bye and will take on Sydney Uni this weekend.
Women's: UNSW BYE
Men's: UNSW lost to Sydney Uni Lions 0-44
