Rounders- U13 Triangular v Craigclowan & Cargilfield 28/04/18

On Wednesday the U13 girls’ had their first Rounders match of the term against Cargilfield and Craigclowan away at Craigclowan. We all jumped onto the bus and headed for Craigclowan all very excited for the first match. When we arrived, the Rounders captain for the term was announced (Connie T) who is very deserving of the role. She took the role of captaincy in her stride and got all the girls warmed up. Our first match was against Cargilfield which we knew was going to be tough. Cargilfield batted first and although they had some very good batters, our fielding was tight. Willa G took a fantastic catch and there was some fabulous deep fielding by Abi C and Kristina D. It was then our turn to bat, unfortunately our batting was not as strong as our fielding and this is where lied our weakness. Unfortunately we lost the game but the girls and I have a plan to very much master their batting. Next we were up against Craigclowan which was a much more evenly matched game. The girls again played their hearts out and really tried to get their batting going. Towards the end India N and Daisy H were left in and having to run run run as fast as they could to avoid us getting all out. It was then Craigclowan turn to bat, with Connie T’s bowing improving all the time and the brilliant communication between the girls, it was looking much stronger. Unfortunately the final score was 6-2 to Craigclowan. Well done girls for an excellent effort on your first match. (Miss Beamish)
