We took a large squad to Fettes today so that all of our U12 girls got the opportunity to play. We were batting first and started fairly well with Katie scoring a rounder off the third ball. Flora then scored a half off ball 5. The girls scored a succession of half rounders with Flora the top scorer of the innings. We ended the innings with 5 ½ rounders. Our fielding in this innings was very effective, especially Sophie and Issy off posts 2 and 3. Unfortunately, Flora was hit in the face when fielding at post 3. She was very brave and luckily Lucy stepped up to field at the post. Lucy did well catching out 2 of the Fettes players.
We ended the innings just (and only just) ahead of the opposition. In the second innings we did not bat as strongly as we would have liked. Despite some gutsy performances by the girls and some split second decisions about whether to run or not run luck was not on our side. Sophie was the highest scorer of this innings with 1 ½. We ended the innings with a total of 10 rounders and realised that our fielding would have to be very tight to win. Fettes were excellent in this innings and slowly clocked up the rounders. Our fielding was good but not good enough on this occasion.
Final score Fettes 13½ Cargilfield 10
