At last the hot weather had arrived for sports day and for the match today! The girls complain when it is too cold, and they complained today that it was too hot!!!
We started off batting this week and like always we take our time to get going, but when we get going we starting hitting rounders all over the field. Elise, Amber, Emily, Holly, Yelena and Madeleine all scored rounders in the first innings, as well as most of the team getting ½’s. We ended the first innings on 9½. Our turn to field and the girls had a shock when the first batter for Hazelwood did a big hit and managed to get the whole way around to score a rounder. We then sorted ourselves out and were aware of the big hitters in the team. Elise had a super game on 2nd post, stopping nearly all the girls from scoring ½. Amber had an excellent game as a deep fielder with her accurate long throws to Alice as bowler. Team Finnegan were on fire again today with Yelena throwing lovely hard accurate balls to Ami to get the girls out. Emily didn’t have much to do as a deep fielder behind 1st post but backed up 2nd post on backward hits well. Madison and Holly took it in turns to field and when they came on they both had a good game on 4th or 3rd post when they were fielding. Hazelwood scored 4½ rounders in the first innings.
We batted again and had a shaky start with a few of our big hitters getting caught out by the Hazelwood girls. We managed to get 6½ rounders in the second innings. They managed to get 3 in the second innings. Hermione took a great catch and had a super game as a fielder, switched on and knew who to throw the ball to every time. Well done girls, one more match to go next week to end the term! Huge thank you to the parents who come and support every week!
