Girls' Rounders: U9 v Cargilfield

Girls' Rounders: U9 v Cargilfield

A shorter bus journey this week but, with a 16-seater and encouragement from Mr Townshend, the girls felt they needed to fill the extra space with singing. The repertoire was small, Wheels on the bus and Highland Cathedral (with drums). Fabulous.
 
After a quick warm up we went into bat, another toss lost. This time the girls really pushed to get to second post with some strong hitting, particularly from Isabella, Iris and Willow. Our fielding also showed an improvement with quicker reactions to the batters and a brilliant catch by Wendy to get the captain out.. The first innings went our way, 4 ½ to 2.
 
In the second innings out batting was less consistent but Wendy and Willow scored a rounder each. Back in the field, Holly, Meme and Lily had to do some quick running when Cargilfield’s batters found their rhythm. Ottilie made it as hard as she could for them but their strength won out.
 
Final score:
8½ - 6½ to Cargilfield
