After a record-breaking opening weekend, Sydney's big guns Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardiner and Alyssa Healy all failed to fire as they were restricted to 8-122 at North Dalton Park in Wollongong.

Perth – which lost to the Sixers in last season's grand final –  were always in control during the run chase and reached the modest target with 10 balls to spare.

Scorchers openers Elyse Villani (74 not out off 61 balls) and Nicole Bolton (42 off 46 balls) did all the damage in a 106-run stand.

Sydney Sixers star Ellyse Perry rushes to check after six hits young fan in the head

  Sydney Sixers star Ellyse Perry rushes to check after six hits young fan in the head Superstar cricketer Ellyse Perry rushed from the pitch on Saturday evening to check if a young boy who was hit in the head by one of her shots was OK. Perry, playing for the Sydney Sixers against the Melbourne Stars at North Sydney Oval, smashed one of the last deliveries of the innings down the ground to the left of the side screen, but unusually, quickly ran after her shot.As her batting partner Dane van Niekerk and some of the Stars fielders began to follow Perry to the fence, it became clear a fan had been hit with the ball.

The 2016–17 Perth Scorchers WBBL season was the second in the team's history. Coached by Lisa Keightley and captained by Suzie Bates, the team competed in the WBBL |02 competition.

Sarah Coyte led the way with three wickets before Alyssa Healy provided the fireworks with the bat as the Sixers claimed back-to-back titles.

Villani scored the winning runs when she hammered Perry over the boundary rope in the 19th over.

"Scoring 120 on this ground and pitch was always going to be tough to defend," Sydney's Erin Burns said. "I think our bowlers did pretty well, particularly towards the back end when they were trying to restrict those boundaries.

"It was always pretty hard to try to get twos on this field but we did pretty well to try to hold them back to the last two overs."

To make matters worse, Gardiner was struck on the helmet by a sharp bouncer from Scorchers quick Katherine Brunt. She stayed out in the middle, but was later ruled out of the match with a minor concussion.

Burns top scored with 33 for the hosts. But when she was caught behind square off the bowling of Heather Graham (2-20), the likelihood of the Sixers setting a significant target departed with her.

Perth's bowlers set the platform for their second win, with Brunt, Graham and Emma King all bagging two wickets.

Sydney are now 2-1 for the season.They next face off against Hobart Hurricanes at Blundstone Arena on Sunday while the Scorchers next play the Brisbane Heat on Friday afternoon.
