Brisbane Heat's WBBL title defence has shifted into overdrive as Jess Jonassen and Beth Mooney inspired them to a clinical eight-wicket defeat of Perth Scorchers at Drummoyne Oval in Sydney.
Jonassen starred with bat (32no) and ball (4-23) while Mooney (60no) continued her magical run at the top of the order to steer the ladder-leading Heat past the Scorchers' modest 8-112 with 23 deliveries to spare on Sunday.
Mooney, the tournament's top run-scorer (523 at 87.17), held firm as Maddy Green and Sammy-Jo Johnson both departed in the power play to plunder her sixth half-century of a golden summer.
Scorchers strike down Thunder in WBBL
Heather Graham has shown class and poise with bat and ball to ensure a perfect WBBL weekend in Adelaide for Perth Scorchers. After surviving a last-ball thriller against the second-placed Adelaide Strikers on Saturday, the Scorchers held their nerve to down the top-placed Thunder on Sunday at Karen Rolton Oval.
Meg Lanning has been brave but the Sydney Sixers' Ellyse Perry's brilliance with the bat, ball and in the field has proved too much for Perth to handle.
Brisbane Heat bowled with great discipline to restrict the Scorchers to 9-94 in 20 overs before cruising to the target in just 12.5 overs at the WACA.
She found a valuable ally in allrounder Jonassen and the pair put on an unbroken 79 for the third wicket to make easy work of the run chase, securing Brisbane's fifth-straight victory.
Player-of-the-match Jonassen capped a memorable weekend with her second four-wicket haul, and her third of the series, to be the leading wicket taker of the competition with 16 at 13.31.
The left-arm spinner combined with the reliable Johnson (2-16) - who is second behind Jonassen for most wickets - to rip into Perth's top order.
The loss snapped the Scorchers' three-game winning streak.
Captain Meg Lanning and import Amy Jones both succumbed in the first three overs before Nat Sciver produced a gutsy 26.
However, none of Perth's first five batters were able to go at a run-a-ball as they failed to mount any real pressure on the Heat.
