2nd Rounders v Belhaven
A fantastic afternoon for a game of rounders but unfortunately it was not to be our finest hour. Belhaven were strong from the start clocking up 4. 1/2 rounders from the first 10 balls. Our fielding was also not as good as it has been in training sessions and we fumbled a bit around second base. We also need to work a little more on our long barriers especially in the deep field. Despite some valiant hitting by Saphira and Hannah we failed to make much of an impact on Belhaven and they ended the first innings 6 rounders ahead.
In the second innings we were a little all over the place with our fielding. We also lost 3 half rounders for obstruction. Our batting improved with Alannah scoring a rounder and Lucie and Laura with a string or rounders and half rounders. However, Belhaven pulled out all the stops and were simply the better team today.
Final Score Cargilfield 14, Belhaven 29.
3rd Rounders v Belhaven
It was a great day to be out in the sun playing rounders against Belhaven. The thirds started off the game fielding, causing a total of 3 of Belhaven’s players to be stumped and caught out in the early stages of the first inning. This allowed the girls to create an achievable score of 6 rounders they could catch in their first batting round. After the first inning, we began playing together as a team and communicating more, increasing the accuracy and improving the delivery of balls. Special mention goes to Rose and Amy who both showed great teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the game. Well done to all the girls on an encouraging game. An unfortunate loss but a great day for it.
Final score: 8.5-13.5 (loss)
