U11 Cricket beat St Mary's

An excellent team performance, boys!

After a strong performance against Strathallan last week the Cargilfield men returned to action on Wednesday against St Mary’s, Melrose. Having lost the toss Cargilfield were made to bowl on an early season wicket, that had plenty in it for the bowler and would reward a good line and length. Theo opened the bowling with Edward and the pair worked well in tandem, with Edward picking up two wickets in his first over. Our change bowlers of Oliver and Monty also got into the action and further restricting St Mary’s. A rallying middle order partnership restricted the Cargilfield momentum and the boys needed 80 runs to win the game

After an outstanding opening partnership of 37 by Caspian and Dexter the game was never really in doubt. This momentum carried through the innings with notable runs for Charles and Archie in amongst some excellent cameos from the wider group.

This maintains the superb start to the season and the boys were terrifically led by Charles this week. Additionally, there was a notable buzz in the field that led to some outstanding catching, ground fielding and throwing.

Key figures:

Edward: 3 overs, 3 wickets for 9 runs

Monty: 3 overs, 2 wickers for 6 runs

Archie: 23* off 9 balls

Charles: 19

Dexter: 18*
