What an exciting game we had at Belhaven with a very close but well deserved win. Amalia our captain lost the toss and we went into bat. It seemed quite a long way to first and we did not seem to be hitting far enough to get beyond to score. However we battled on, scoring half rounders. Amalia was hitting well and scored a lovely rounder and Emilia also did well, running doggedly around to get her first competitive rounder. We scored a total of 6 in the innings. Belhaven started well with some good rounders and half rounders and unfortunately also quite a few half rounders because of no balls. Lola kept on trying hard though. Belhaven had scored 8 rounders. We went back into bat determined to score well and whilst Amalia, Bea and Lola went out very quickly we did not lose our nerve and Sophia scored several more half rounders and Annika and Emilia did very well scoring full rounders.
We do need to look ahead more carefully to avoid being run out but we did manage to score a further 7 rounders bringing our total to 13. We needed to ensure Belhaven got no more than 4 ½ if we were to win. We did exactly that with Lola back on great bowling form and also managing to get girls out at second post. Lola is undoubtedly our man of the match as she showed great character when her bowling started to go awry and she fielded very well. Emilia also did very well trying to turn her hit and running with great determination. She scored a total of 3 rounders!
Final score Cargilfield 12 Belhaven 12 1/2
Well done, girls!
