U9 Rounders v Fettes 

Our success with winning the toss continued on our visit to Fettes and Beattie (Captain) chose to field first.  Despite reminding the girls to be vigilant from the start of the game, Fettes’s first 2 players caught the girls’ napping and scored 2 rounders from the first 2 balls. They then started to focus and manged to stump out 3 and catch one player before the Fettes big hitter came into bat again scoring another rounder however 2 super catches and some quick throws to 2nd base resulted in St Marys’ getting Fettes all out for 7.  We came into bat but unfortunately failed to connect with the ball resulting in only scoring 1 ½ rounders in response.  The girls started the second innings determined to stop Fettes from scoring and despite some super fielding and getting 6 of the Fettes team out gave away a number of ½ rounders. 


We came back into bat requiring 9 ½ rounders to win however only managed to score 3 ½. 
We fielded well this week, with some super stops and accurate throwing to the post, however we need to start connecting with the ball to score rounders. Guess what we’ll be practising in games this week!!!!! 
Final score:
St Mary’s 6                    v          Fettes 11 ½  
Olivia                          2 ½ rounders
Celia                           2 rounders
Freya                          ½ rounder
