Yesterday evening a Year 7 and 8 mixed Rounders team took on Campion in their second match of the season. They started off the innings with some fantastic batting from the team, Erin Jones and Sarah Costa managed a rounder each with their hits. The team worked well together and motivated each other to succeed, leading to success from all in the batting. Kacie Morby, Rosie Maclister, Cerys James, Carmen Ellis Greenway, Olivia Constable, Ciara Askew and Grace White all managed to add further to the score with full and half rounders. Campion needed to score 8 and a half to beat Southam in the first innings, but thanks to superb fielding and consistent bowling from Alex Lyle the team only managed 5 and a half.
The second innings saw Southam go into bat again, the girls were consistent scoring rounders and the addition of Alex Lyle and Shona Thorburn added further to the score leaving Campion to chase 19 rounders! When fielding the team upped their game further and stopped scoring opportunities for Campion. Alex Lyle continued to bowl fast and this stumped the Campion batters. Shona Thorburn continued to work hard stopping the left handers scoring any half and full rounders, this teamed with a couple of great catches and a brilliant team effort saw Southam win 19 – 14 and a half.
A great match which puts both year groups in a positive position going into the summer tournament.
Well done, Miss MacLachlan and Miss Evans.
