Today the U9/10 Girls travelled to St George’s to play against their girls in a game of cricket. Although a little bit of rain passed through, the clouds cleared for the girls to enjoy a fun game of cricket in the sun. The game consisted of 10 overs of fielding and 10 overs of batting for each team, so all the girls had the opportunity to bowl, field and bat.
In the first half of the game the girls were fielding. They demonstrated some excellent play; They were on the ball as soon as the opposing team had hit it, and were quick to get it back to the stumps. Their bowling was great too - congratulations to Jemima who scored a wicket against St George’s team by bowling the batter out. As a result, St George’s final score was 228 runs.
In the second half of the game, Cargilfield was batting. The girls did extremely well and scored a good number of runs.
This put the girls on a total of 244 runs. The girls had four wickets scored against them which resulted in their final score being 224 runs. In the end it was a close game, losing by only four runs to St George’s (228-224). Congratulations girls on a competitive game, especially given it was your first fixture of cricket today! well done on all your efforts.
