What a glorious afternoon for playing an away match at Birchfield!
Going into bat first Yarlet started cautiously but soon the intrepid Evi winged her way to second for a half rounder and more excellent hits and runs followed thanks to Kirstie and the two Jessica’s. Birchfield could hit but didn’t risk and with our excellent fielding we kept their score really low. In our second innings we decided to enjoy ourselves as it was very unlikely that our opponents would be able to catch up. With superb sweeping hits from Jessica, Evi and Kirstie we started to score whole rounders. We doubled our score to 16 and a half.
Birchfield had to suffer the humiliation of a huge defeat thanks to super bowling from Grace D, great passes from backstop Jessica H to 1st post Jemima, who had 8 girls stumped out over the 2 innings. Thanks also to the amazing cover of second base due to swift stopping from Harriet and Kirstie. Half colours were awarded to Jessica Hood and Evi Rogers for their excellent play. A great day’s work, well done girls!
