Amesbury U11B v Guildford High U11C

Fielder: Georgie
Batter: Emily
Lady of the match: Imogen

Won: 32 – 7

A tremendous result for the girls final match of the season and for some their final match at Amesbury. We lost the toss and went into bat first. From the outset every girl hit the ball, harder and further than I had even seen them hit and with varying angles, confusing the fielders. Superb strikes from Imogen, Emily, Georgie and Lily easily scoring full rounders. We ended the first innings with 15 ½ rounders. A very solid performance and mature running from all the girls, looking to see where the fielders were throwing and running when they knew there was a chance of scoring.

Lily bowled superbly only giving away half a rounder. Alice stumped 2 players at first, Emily 3 at second. Imogen covered third base and deep fielded with throws straight to 4th so they could not score a full rounder. Excellent back up at second from Tilly and Bibi. Guildford High only scored 4 rounders so we were way ahead at this stage.

Our second innings went very much the same way as the first with Alice, Georgie and Tilly scoring the most full rounders. A fantastic display of positioning either the body or angle of strike with the bat to hit the ball away from the fielders. We scored 16 ½ rounders making full rounders from backwards hit balls with any fumbling from Guildford High giving us the opportunity to capitalise on their mistakes and run for 4th.

The final innings for fielding was even better than the first with Imogen and Alice catching people out and intelligent thinking from all players regarding where to throw the ball. Guildford High only scored 3 rounders making a total of 7. A brilliant display of teamwork and athleticism in all areas. Well done girls.
