U11Girls Cricket beat Craigclowan

Well played, girls!

U11Girls Cricket v Craigclowan

We enjoyed our drive up to Craigclowan with fine weather and super views. Captain Isla won the toss and we started fielding. Isla was good at encouraging the girls to maintain good fielding positions and to stay alert. Whilst Thalia’s bowls threatened the wickets most, it was Valentina who took our two wickets, stumping two girls out. Scarlett’s bowling was also very fine. Craigclowan scored many twos but did not manage to hit 4’s. We nearly caught them on more than one occasion.

When Cargilfield went into bat we picked up the runs quickly. Valentina, Isla and Millie scored 4’s. Indeed, Millie scored two 4’s. She and Beatrice managed to score 18 in their over, despite Beatrice being caught out unfortunately. Valentina was also caught out. However, with good communication and plucky but sensible running, we managed to score a total of 77 for two wickets compared with Craigclown’s 57 for 1 wicket. We enjoyed a picnic tea in the sun whilst waiting for the boys to finish.

Final score Cargilfield 277 for 2, Craigclowan 257 for 1.
