Stoneygate’s mixed team played Wellingborough’s U’13C which was a tough beginning to the rounders season. However, it was good match play experience for everyone.
Stoneygate: Caitlin G (Capt.), Rakhi, Sian, Francesca, Eloise M, Mia, Caitlin M, Clemmie.
The Stoneygate team scoreded 6 1/2 rounders to Wellingborough’s 19 but this game gave the girls lots of opportunities to improve fielding and batting and to try different positions on the pitch. Also, by the end of the game, the girls’ confidence had noticeably risen.
Player of the match was Rakhi who bowled consistently well and held the team together.
Special mention goes to Sian who had to play under pressure at inner. As the game progressed she made huge improvements to her own play, especially catching.
Catch of the match goes to Rakhi for when she firmly held on to a mighty strike of the ball from the Wellingborough’s best batter as it headed directly for Rakhi, brilliant!
