The 3rds were hosted by Merchiston for a pairs, hard-ball match on a day when the weather kept everyone guessing with a forceful wind, intermittent showers and sunshine.Cargilfield took up the bat first, taking time to get into the game but eventually accumulated a total of 95 runs, helped by a few timely boundaries by Thabo and Zak, who were the last pairing of the innings.The windy conditions made accuracy a little harder but the boys made a good go of defending the total.
After the first three overs the hosts were only on 3 runs; however, they soon found their rhythm and a few mis-fields on the short boundary boosted their confidence and let them back into the game.
The boys continued to put their best efforts in and despite a few fine wickets from Harry, Daniel and Thabo, they were not able to stem the flow of runs entirely and Merchiston ended the match with 59 more runs.
Well done to all the boys for their team spirit and effort.
