Under 14’s: Won 14 ½ – 5 ½

The Under 14 rounders team played fantastically. The girls, captained by Abby won the toss and choose to field first. They did so superbly allowing only one rounder to be scored. Amelia took up the backstop position and linked brilliantly with Courtney on first post to stump out a number of the Pool team. Anais’ bowling was difficult to contend with due to the high speed and difficult spin that she is becoming accomplished at applying. The girls batted well in the first innings and went into the final batting innings of the game having already won. There were some great hits from Courtney, who even managed to hit the ball over the fence and into the nearby road on two consecutive occasions. The girls remain undefeated and we are looking forward to next week’s fixture against Redruth.
