Girls' Cricket U11 B vs OBH
Considering we had only squeezed in two practices in the last week of the Spring term, this was an excellent performance by all the girls!
Having won the toss we chose to field first and everyone had to bowl for at least one over. Georgia P got us off to a superb start bowling the first over with only one wide and finishing with a superb ball right on the stumps. Davina M followed and the opposition were unable to add any runs from any of her 6 balls. Other notable bowlers were Dominique G and Julia K who in their first overs bowled accurately and strongly.
At the end of the 12 overs the opposition finished on a score of 156, having started on a score of 100.
Our batting was also impressive particularly from Margot F, Georgie C and Martha M, all of whom found the boundary at least once. It was evident that after hitting the ball we needed to watch the fielding more closely as we missed many easy runs, but this will come with further practice and more match play.
Congratulations to all the girls for the impressive afternoon of cricket they played which was much admired and commented on by the spectators.
Holmwood 177 runs, OBH 156 runs
