St. Mary’s vs Merchiston C
St. Mary's started with a good fielding display, with good bowling leading to wickets from Wilfie and Adam B resulting in a reachable total of 36. A strong opening batting partnership from Liam and Rudi followed by a commendable effort from the rest of the team led to St. Marys' 2nd Xl first win of the season.
St. Mary’s vs Merchiston B
After a quick turnaround St. Mary's went into bat first and with some strong Merchiston bowling St. Mary's lost a few wickets and came away with a total of 39. With some good bowling from Mauz, Merchiston took some time to score the runs they needed, however, a strong Merchiston batting performance ensured they secured the win.
St. Mary’s vs Cargilfield
St. Mary's went in to field first in the final game and with a great bowling performance from Thomas, some of the stronger Cargilfield batsmen were toppled. This was accompanied by good contributions from Joseph at wicket keeper as well as in the field through Adam A leading to a Cargilfield total of 64. With more impressive batting from Liam and Rudi, backed up by the likes of Mauz, it looked like another victory was on the cards for St. Mary's. However, a good overall outing from the 2nd Xl was not quite enough as Cargilfield ended up winning by 1 run!
A good start to the season, with some promising batting and bowling. Well done boys!
