U13 B Rounder v Riley 3 May

The St Mary's fields were looking stunning for the Seconds game against Riley House this afternoon. Riley House won the toss and chose to field first, Tegan beginning St Mary's first innings with a ½ Rounder. Similar to last week, Jessica also managed to get points on the board (½ Rounder), however, it was awesome to see some other pupils stepping up and scoring Rounders as well. Both Isla and Ruby scored three ½ Rounders, whilst Iona scored two ½ Rounders in the first innings. Riley House was focused on getting runners out between bases so it was great to see the girls plucking the courage and continuing on to second base after they had hit the ball. That confidence enabled us to finish the first innings on 5.5 Rounders.

On the St Mary's girls first innings out in the field, a vast improvement could be seen from last week's efforts. Though there is still work to be done in the back field, the teamwork between Rowan, Jessica and Isla stumping second base before anyone who hit the ball could get to it was sensational. It saved the St Mary's ladies from getting numerous ½ Rounders scored against them.

In the girls second innings batting, some unsteady bowling from Riley House enabled us to win a couple of easy ½ Rounders. Phoebe scored a ½ rounder this way, as did Lucy. On Lucy's third ball, she hit it to the back field and made it to second base to score another ½ rounder. Freya also scored a full rounder on her third bat in the second innings, running around the entire field after hitting it between two deep fielders and testing Riley House's communication skills.

I was impressed again in the St Mary's girls second innings with their fielding. Some great work by Iona on first base stumped two of the Riley House girls out, whilst Rowan made a fantastic catch to get another Riley House girl out. The final score for the match was 11 - 10.5 to St Mary's; a close match that was won by some great efforts in the batting field. Thank you to Riley House and to all the parents who came to support the girls and help make it a cracking afternoon of Rounders.
