We arrived to watch the first match of the afternoon in full swing as Cargilfield became victorious over Belhaven.
Our first match against Cargilfield started well with the first two players being stumped out but things soon changed. The opposition displayed fabulous batting skills and soon were scoring full and half rounders. I was impressed with our fielding, with some lovely throwing and catching to stop the live batter scoring. As we moved to our batting positions we were keen to score more than 7 to take the lead. The girls displayed great accurate batting but many need a bit more power to take the ball further to allow individuals to score by getting to 2nd post.
The final match of the day against our hosts, Belhaven started very well with excellent batting along with clever tactical thinking. We didn’t take too many risks early but once again need to perfect our batting power for next time. The Belhaven girls were unlucky with batting but continued to notch up half rounders to make the final score a very even ending.
Some great effort from all three teams this afternoon with some extremely close scores.
Tiggy, Emily, Anna, Mabel and Cadence all scored 1½
Lily and Emerson scored ½ each
A further 1 rounder added for no balls
Great effort from all other too – Skye, Sophie, Harriet, Ally, Bea and Kate
