U12 Rounders v Hoe Bridge
Result: Lost 16-19
Lady: Lily
Fielder: Izzy

In the absence of year 8, the year 7 girls played an u12 match vs Hoe Bridge. It was a lovely opportunity to finish the year as a group and say goodbye to those that are leaving.

Amesbury were asked to field first. It took a while to get going and so Hoe Bridge got off to a flyer, scoring quickly and putting pressure on the fielders. Fielding decisions needed to be made more quickly and the girls found it hard at times to move on from mistakes made previously. The fielding at the end of the innings was much tighter, with some excellent communication.

From the first ball of the Amesbury batting innings, it was clear that Hoe Bridge were a well-drilled fielding side. Again, some interesting decisions were made and Amesbury were quickly reduced to 3 batters. Luckily Dora and Lily were on great form, hitting several rounders to leave the score at 8-8.5 in Hoe Bridges favour at half time.

The second innings was a very similar affair to the first with a mixed fielding display combined with some excellent batting from Hoe Bridge. Again, the girls rallied and kept the score to a minimum in the final 10 balls, leaving Hoe Bridge with a final score of 19.

Unfortunately, lily got out to the first ball of our second innings and the girls knew that they would have to bat exceptionally to claim victory. Strong batting from all of the girls meant that the game never got out of their sight and it finished 16-19. A great effort from the girls but not the result they had hoped for.

The girls have had a fantastic season and they really captured the essence of the spirit of the game, congratulating each other and encouraging each other (even Hoe Bridge) throughout, Well done.
