The U11 rounders team played some superb rounders on Monday against St Bede’s in the 4th round of the nationals.
We had our first home fixture of the competition and played at Sevenoaks School in perfect conditions. The girls had been looking forward to playing and had put in many extra hours of training. The first innings were particularly close with St Bede’s scoring 6 and The Granville scoring 7 and a half rounders. It was all down to the second innings, with the score that close it was anyone’s game!
The Granville became very focussed and determined, they decided to change fielding tactics and stop St Bede’s scoring any full rounders. We actually got all of St Bede’s out before thirty balls, only allowing them to score two rounders. The Granville only had to score one rounder to win! The girls as always didn’t switch off and produced some great hitting.
Final score 8-15 to The Granville.
Next up is Windlesham House on Saturday 18th June at Sevenoaks School.
