Final score – Cargilfield 11 ½ Belhaven 12
Belhaven won the toss and put Cargilifield in to bat first. The Belhaven team were a good fielding team and it was tricky to get rounders due to some good bowling and fielding, however, Cargilfield did get 7 rounders mostly from getting to second base. At the end of the innings there were two good full rounders from Clemmie and Issy B to give us a first innings total of 7. Belhaven performed well with the bat with some good long hits to score 4 full rounders and 4 half rounders to leave us just one rounder behind after the first innings.
Things got tougher for Cargilfield in the second innings battling with some really tight fielding and 4 of our players out after the first bat. The remaining girls did battle on with some hard work and several half rounders with Caitlin managing an excellent rounder on the last bat of the innings. Belhaven then came in to bat needing only 3 ½ rounders to win. Cargilfield put in an excellent, attacking fielding performance with Ruby and Clara stopping long hits and quickly getting 5 of their players out including their captain, caught out with an amazing catch by Issy. A tough game for Cargilfield playing a very strong Belhaven team. Outstanding fielding in particular today from Katinka who was amazing at 2nd base. A narrow loss but hopefully some good lessons learnt.
