2nd Rounders Triangular
Wednesday 25th May 2016
St Mary’s v Cargilfield v Loretto
Captain: Chloe (Game 1) and Sasha (Game 2)
This week we travelled to Cargilfeild for another triangular tournament against Cargilfield and Loretto. In the first match the girls were fielding first but despite a sound performance the fielding was not as tight as it has been in previous weeks. Thus, Cargilfeild scored a total of 5.5 rounders.
It was then time for St Mary’s to bat. Unfortunately, Cargilfield had their strongest players as back stop and on first base. This resulted in three of our players being stumped out on their first bat and an additional four others at different points in the game. All in all, the game ended on the 25th good ball as every St Mary’s player was out.
The final score for this game was 5.5-2 to Cargilfield.
Last time we played Cargilfield, St Mary’s won by a significant margin. Although the result on Wednesday was disappointing the girls didn’t let it get them down leading up to their next game against Loretto.
Again in this match St Mary’s were fielding first. Loretto played very well scoring 6.5 rounders despite our improved fielding St Mary’s managed to stump out five Loretto girls during the match which was a great effort.
It was then time for St Mary’s to bat with a score of 6.5 rounders to beat. The girls certainly gave it their all. Although three girls were stumped out during the innings, the girls managed to claim their victory, winning by half a rounder with a score of 7 rounders.
It was a great game and a lovely way to end a fantastic rounders season. Thank you so much to the girls for all the fun and effort this term.
