Fabulous weather and a fabulous match!
Yarlet were well warmed up from practising with Chris and Emily for over 20 minutes. We batted first and scored a modest 4 1/2 rounders thanks to good running from Ella and Sophie. Edenhurst were very shaky and couldn't manage more than one rounder in reply. Well done to Ellen for a super catch from behind!
At half-time the Yarlet girls were challenged to improve their score to at least 10. They were also encouraged to take more risks and put pressure on the Edenhurst fielders. This tactic worked very well. Sophie scored two full rounders. Half rounders abounded from Ellen, Purdy, Freya, Ella and Amelia who fearlessly ran on despite missing the ball! Our score was now a healthy 10 1/2 rounders.
Our second fielding innings was much improved with excellent stops and Purdy stumping out several girls on base 2. Raphie was alert as back stop and passing quickly to bowler Sophie who was superbly accurate and confident. Edenhurst were risking too, now, but just couldn't get very far and scored only 3 more rounders.
A super first win from this enthusiastaic team.
