U13A v Moor Park
Today was a mixed bag of cricket from the girls. We fielded first against Moor Parks strong opening pairs; Aggie working particularly hard on the boundary saving fours when she could. Apple took the first wicket, then the first catch, then Emma struck and Apple again. We took 10 wickets in total and restricted the opposition to just 264, not a bad score to chase down. However we needed to set off at a canter to get this score and we struggled to even get into a fast walk!! The girls just could not get bat on ball, and as we failed to get runs on the board we also managed to lose wickets, 9 in total. With our last pair coming in needing 52 off three overs the game had already been lost, but Apple and Emma set about finishing with a flourish with both batters scoring several fours. But it was too late and we finished a disappointing 237.
Batting practise for the rest of the week girls!!
