In their third and final meeting of the season, the Under 11Cs welcomed Fettes to a soft ball pairs match on the astro.
The Cargilfield team batted first with the opening pair of William P and Adam accumulating a total of 35 runs for their four overs. Harry and Otis were the top scoring pair, putting on an impressive 53 runs during their allocation of overs - a run rate of over 13!. At the end of the innings, the team had scored a total of 152 runs in the 20 overs.
Their task now turned to defending the score they had set and right from the start the boys fielding was to a high standard. Thomas, Max and Oscar were the pick of the bowlers, conceding only 13 runs between them. William P. took a great one handed catch behind the stumps after the ball was edged by the batsman and Otis produced a fine throw for a run out before cooling catching a high ball. In the end, the boys managed to secure a win by 79 runs.
Well done to the whole team for their important contributions but a particular mention is reserved for Otis who was the man of the match.
