Izzy opened the batting for us and managed to hit a great ball. She got us off to a good start as she sprinted round all the posts to score a full rounder. Grace, Telia, Lily, Emma, Eleanor and Heather all followed suit to strike the ball well and score us a string of half rounders. What a fantastic start to our innings. We continued to bat well with further half rounders scored by Izzy and Grace. Having already played one match we proved to be more confident in our fielding and we managed to prevent Walthamstow Hall scoring any full rounders. They did however manage to strike
several good balls and so were able to score half rounders.
FINAL SCORE….GRANVILLE WIN GRANVILLE 6 WALTHAMSTOW HALL 2.5
In the second innings, three of Walthamstow Hall girls had to leave early and rather than play very unequal sides we decided in true sporting fashion to let three of our girl’s field for the opposition. Annabelle, Grace and Ava all kindly offered to field for Walthamstow Hall. They quickly settled into their positions, played to the best of their ability and they did so with excellent sportsmanship. Our batters performed brilliantly, with the entire team managing to hit the ball and everyone
scoring at least one half rounder. Telia and Lily went on to score a full rounder each after really big hits. We fielded with good competence in our second innings. Annabelle performed especially well at backstop and Telia managed to keep hold of a brilliant catch.
FINAL SCORE…GRANVILLE WIN GRANVILLE 5.5 W. HALL 3
In what was the girls only second match this proved to be a really strong game for the A team. We played with greater commitment and understanding in our fielding and the girls batting was really super. Well done!
