square earlier in the season. Sophia made a good effort with bowling but it was a bit windy which allowed St Mary’s to pick up a few half rounders. Issy was a useful addition in the deep and Flora and Martha worked well with Amy at backstop to limit their scoring. When it was our turn to bat we clocked up quite a few half rounders. Flora made a spectacular run towards fourth for a full rounder but was just pipped to it by St Mary’s back stop. However, we pulled off our first victory of the season.

We fielded first against Loretto and buoyed by our win in the previous match were very much focused and working hard. Loretto made some plucky attempts to reach second and fourth and ended the innings with 5 rounders. Flora was on fire today and her batting was excellent. She was definitely our player of the match scoring a rounder and two half rounders. Issy also scored well with a rounder and a half. It was all to play for at 20 balls as we drew level with 5 rounders each, Sophia and Flora took us to victory scoring off the last few balls.
