STEPH Townsend helped Vic Country secure a final game victory and a fifth-place finish at the Australian Country Cricket Championships in Toowoomba on Friday.
The Melbourne Cricket Club player made 143 runs - including a half-century in round two against New South Wales - and took one wicket across her seven games at the annual tournament.
Her week included innings of five, 50, seven, four, 25, 26, 18 and 8.
The talented dual sportsperson, who is also playing-coach of Nirranda's A grade netball side, averaged 20 runs an innings batting in various positions - including as an opener or at number four or five.
Townsend, who also claimed one catch and assisted in two runouts, and her Vic Country teammates defeated Western Australia in their final game to secure fifth spot.
Country set WA a total of 8-119 from its 20 overs. Townsend took her only wicket of the tournament in the final game as Victoria restricted WA to 111 from its 20 overs to seal an eight-run victory.
