Score: Won 13-8
This was a cool and calm display of rounders against St Felix’s year 10s and 9s. We put St Felix into bat and kept their scoring to a minimum with two of their players being given out on the same ball, which is a great achievement. One player was caught and then one was stumped at second. Harriet Spence and Mollie Biddle took some great catches during the game and our fielding was quick getting their players out at second and first post. They finished on 4.5 after their first innings but we responded with half or full rounders from Millie Cave, Flora Johnston, Chloe Outen, Maddie Felton, Mia King, Mollie Biddle and Katy Garnett. We finished 3 rounders ahead of them and it was all to play for in the second innings.
However, we dominated in the field and got all their team bar one out and there was some great quick fielding to stump a number of their players out. When batting, Eleanor Berridge scored a great half rounder and Zara Lye stepped up to the plate and scored a fantastic rounder (being a lefty has great advantages in this game!) amongst others scoring.
Although we need to work on our placement of the ball when hitting we can be very pleased with this result. Well done girls!
