U10 Rounders v Loretto
St. Marys, Cargilfield and Loretto
Hosted at St. Mary’s
Wednesday 22nd May
St. Mary’s 10 v Cargilfield 2½
St Mary’s 4 v Loretto 4
Our first match against Loretto started well, I was impressed with our fielding, with some lovely throwing and catching to stop the live batter scoring. We got 4 girls out and finished on the 30th ball only allowing Loretto to score 4. As we moved to our batting positions, we were keen to score more than 4 to take the lead. The girls displayed great accurate batting but many needed a bit more power to take the ball further to allow individuals to score by getting to 2nd post. We took a lot of risks and got 5 of our team out with us sitting at a loss of 1 when it came to our final batter. Lily hit behind and took the risk of running when the ball crossed the line into play and scored a brilliant rounder giving us an equal final score. Fantastic determination on the last ball.
The final match of the day against Cargilfield started very well with super fielding and catching to get 7 girls out. We really excelled this time in batting along with clever tactical thinking. We didn’t take too many risks but with more hits we managed to notch up some half rounders by reaching 2nd base. We also scored a few half rounders from no balls. The girls played well scoring a high 10.
Some great effort from all three teams this afternoon.
Olivia, Lily and Nicole all scored 3½
Beattie scored 1½ each
Tallulah scored 1
Celia and Freya scored ½
Great effort from all others too – Mahi, Zara, Emily, Lily and Ally
