It was a fantastic afternoon for our penultimate fixtures of the season. Our last ones had been rained off so sun cream on we were determined to make our mark. There has been a lot of hard work this season on developing more accurate fielding and I think our work with the cricket coaches has really helped with this. We played Loretto first and got off to a strong start by stopping them scoring until ball 6. As it was a 20 good balls match we were more concerned with limiting their scoring as opposed to taking the players out and we did very well at this. In our second Innings Hannah made a couple of good catches quite close in off third base. Laura was also effective at first and Clemmie well supported by Catherine on 2nd. Our batting was tremendous today with absolutely everyone making their mark and scoring. Mention mist be made of some fantastic batting by Saphira and Hannah.
We continued in the same vein against Fettes. We took the first two players out on the first two balls and then again on ball 6. We managed to limit their scoring to 2 and a half rounders. Our batting was again really good and with impressive performances from Saphira, Hannah, Clemmie and Caitlin took our total to 6 and a half. We only played half of the next innings as by the close of Fettes batting they had score in total 6 rounders. This meant we were victorious without having to bat.
Final score Cargilfield 11, Loretto 8
And, Cargilfield 6 ½ Fettes 6
