Allora girl wins a premiership in Brisbane

CRICKET: Allora player Kira Holmes made one great stumping as the Ipswich Hornets won the Brisbane second-grade women's premiership with a win at the weekend.

Holmes, 14, stumped Sandgate Redcliffe top scorer Cara Musk, a dismissal which had a major impact on the result. The young Ipswich team finished minor premiers after the fixture season and has now won the premiership trophy, the Jodie Fields Shield.

A week earlier, Holmes took two catches for the Hornets.

The Allora keeper travels each week to Ipswich to training and has received some coaching at Slade Park in Warwick from former Warwick Mitchell Shield and Queensland Country keeper Geordie Russell.

In the premier grade, Warwick player Delissa Kimmince was part of the Gold Coast team which went down by nine wickets to Sandgate Redcliffe in the grand final.
