In form New Zealander Amy Satterthwaite completed a terrific weekend by starring in the Hobart Hurricanes' WWBL super over win against Melbourne Renegades on Sunday.

Satterthwaite was player of the match in both games over the weekend against the Renegades in Bendigo.

She followed up her unbeaten 45 and 2-22 on Saturday with 52 not out off 41 balls on Sunday.

Satterthwaite bowled the final over in both games, holding her nerve in each.

On Saturday she denied the Renegades the 11 runs they needed to win and kept them to five on Sunday to force a super over.

Although Satterthwaite was dismissed for a first ball duck in the extra over, Matthew and Erin Burns got them to the target of 13, with the latter smacking a four off the last ball.

There was better fortune for Melbourne's other side, the Stars, as they completed a weekend home double over Sydney Sixers, with a six-wicket win on Sunday.

Jess Cameron scored 45 and Katie Mack 48 in an unbroken fourth wicket stand off 77 off 10 overs, to carry the Stars to their target of 112 with 19 balls to spare.

The Sixers' Ashleigh Gardner completed a good weekend following up her 38 on Saturday with 43 on Sunday, but lacked support.

Brisbane Heat avenged Saturday's loss to the Perth Scorchers with a crushing eight wicket win at the WACA on Sunday,

Southern Stars representative Beth Mooney excelled on Sunday, blasting 12 fours in an unbeaten 67, as the Scorchers reached their target of 95 with more than seven overs left.

Earlier Mooney showed her wicketkeeping class by executing four stumpings.

The Stars and Hurricanes are the early pacesetters with six points.
