U9B Rounders v Belhaven Hill

31 May 2017

U9B Rounders 31st May
  
The U9Bs travelled to Belhaven Hill for today’s fixture, yet again the weather was beautiful, an idea afternoon for a game of rounders. We won the toss and decided to field first.
 
Our fielding was much improved on last week’s performance, with the girls stopping the ball and throwing accurately to prevent Belhaven from scoring a significant number of rounders. Belhaven finished the inning with 4 rounders.  The St Marys came into bat and quickly scored a full rounder, The scoring then slowed, due to good fielding by Belhaven, although a number of girls hit the ball, they were unsuccessful in scoring.  We finished the innings one rounder behind.

The girls, came into the second inning with everything to play for, unfortunately due to a couple of poor fielding decisions Belhaven scored a number of rounders, finishing the match with a total of 8 ½. rounders.  A determined St Mary’s came into bat and scored a rounder from the first ball of the innings,  a number of half rounders followed and they finished the innings adding 4 ½ rounders to their score, unfortunately one rounder behind Belhaven.
 
Final score St Mary’s 7 ½  -  Belhaven 8 ½.
 
A super match to umpire and the girls have improved significantly over the last couple of weeks.  Well played to Ally (½), Bea (1 ½), Bee (½), Charlotte, Celia, Emerson (½), Freya (2 x ½), Harriet (1), Mahi, Nicole ( Capt ½).
 
Well done girls.
