U11 Rounders vs St Mary’s
This week we had been working on our relaying skills during training sessions and were keen to make an impact in this our first home match. Shiryaa was our Captain who won the toss and elected to field first. Our fielding line up was strong with Miranda on second, Savannah on first and Isla C on back stop. Nadia was a good and steady bowler who kept the no balls to a minimum. Out in the deep Valentina and Bea gave their best efforts to relaying the ball back in. St Mary’s batted very well and ended the innings on 5 ½ rounders. When it was our turn to bat it took a little time to warm up. We were consistent though and kept our eye on the game which allowed us to sneak the odd half rounder in. We ended the innings on 7 ½.
Both sides knew that there was everything to play for and that we were fairly evenly matched. Both sides played their socks off hitting and fielding well. Valentina was probably our player of the match and being able to bat on the left allowed her to exploit a weakness in the opposition fielding. St Marys were also very strong clocking up a lot of half rounders.
