After last week’s rained off matches; it was a real treat to be out in the sunshine for rounders this Wednesday! The girls were keen to show off their much improved short distance fielding, getting out 8 of their batters in the first innings. St Hugh’s took to bat, communicating extremely well between them. Decision making played a huge part in this game, identifiable by St Hugh’s only having 3 players caught or run out in the first innings.
Spilsby stepped up their game in the second innings, scoring 7 of their final 11 rounders. St Hugh’s moved the ball smoothly between the posts, determined to get as many of the opposition players out as they could. When the home team took to bat, they knew what they needed to score to achieve their first win, but Spilsby refused to let them walk it. Getting out 6 of our 10 players meant the pressure was on for those receiving the final few balls. Grace, Issy and Ava did not buckle under pressure, adding 2 and a half rounders to the home team score in the final 4 balls! Amazing composure from all the team resulted in an 11-11 draw.
Next week the U13’s travel to Worksop in their next rounders match of the season.
