The longer this week's under 15s Western NSW Girls Cricket Carnival went in Orange this week the better young Cowra cricketer Karly Woods performed.

After a slow start to the carnival the Cowra representative came into her own in the final games of the competition, returning her best bowling and batting figures in her final two appearances for Western.

While it was an under 15s comp, Western only had two girls who were genuine under 15s, with one under 12 and probably half the team, including Woods, were under 13s.

Woods finished the carnival with 41 runs, a highest score of 38 and a batting average of just over 20.

With the ball in hand she took three wickets, with best figures of 3-9 attained in Western's final match of the carnival against Sydney side Lane Cove.

Her best batting of 38 not out came in Western's penultimate match of the four match carnival against Penrith.

Against Parramatta in the carnival opener Woods sent down two overs returning the figures of 0-12 and against Hills Barbarians she finished the match with 0-6.
