U11 Cricket v Loretto
In unpredictable weather, the girls began their match against Loretto and quickly rallied as Isla and Bea opened the batting with authority. They found the significant Gillespie boundary and set the bar high for Loretto. They were followed by Emily and Scarlett who faced some very good bowling as Loretto was able to claim (what would be) their only wicket of the match. All of the Cargilfield batted well to accumulate a total of 168 runs - a very good score.
Loretto took to the field to face Val's bowling; her maiden over set the bar high and this was built on by Olivia and Scarlett. However, it was the excellent fielding from Emily and Thalia that was the highlight of the match: Loretto tried to sneak a single from Thalia's bowling but she denied them the run by taking off the bails before they could make it back to the crease. Nonetheless, Loretto was able to get their tally to the respectable score of 130.
Well done girls, a good team performance!
Isla & Bea: 24 runs
Emily & Scarlett: 10 runs

Millie & Rosanna: 7 runs
