Sports Report - Year 9 Girls Rounders
Tonight our year 9 girls rounders team went to play at King Alfred's against Haygrove, BCA and King Alfred's. A special mention and thanks to Mr Mills for driving the mini bus, otherwise the fixture would have been cancelled!
We played BCA first. Whilst a several half rounders were scored by Iona, Xena and Jess, we only managed to score two and a half rounders. This made it challenging when it came to fielding and BCA scored several half rounders from our miss-fielding and BCA took the victory.
Then we played Haygrove, who were very strong with both batting and fielding. India managed to scrape half a rounder, but that was all that we were allowed to score. Whilst our fielding was much improved on the BCA game, Haygrove has some excellent batters who seemed to hit all across the pitch, and they took the victory six and a half rounders to half a rounder.
The last match was against King Alfred's, who were the team most evenly matched with us today. The girls batting was good and they managed to score some excellent half rounders to rack up the points. They went into the field with three and a half rounders to beat. Until ball 17 of 20, the girls did a great job of holding the lead. However, some unfortunate bowling of no balls led to half rounders being scored by King Alfred's, and a miss-field allowed them to score a whole rounder on ball 19, meaning that they snatched the victory.
However, the girls tried their best and worked hard to try to improve throughout the matches which was great to see.
