Quick thinking fielders eliminate Opposition’s batters!

Posted: 17th May 2017 | Category: Sports

U13 Rounders

The U13's have had an excellent start to the season having played four matches so far with two good wins, a nail-biting draw and a narrow loss.

The girls are taking this fun, summer sport seriously and have worked extremely hard to improve their skills. It is evident that although we can improve on our batting strength, our fielding decisions are excellent and are standing us in very good stead! This was demonstrated in style during an exciting one innings match vs Rose Hill who had some excellent batters in their team.

We got off to a weak start only scoring 3 ½ rounders and knew that a very tough job was ahead to keep the Rose Hill batters from topping this... However after just ten balls, with some intelligent and quick thinking we had eliminated their best five batters and were then able to keep their score right down resulting in an exciting draw! A case of brains vs brawn!

Well done girls!
