Year 10 have their penultimate Rounders match at Southam!
The team last night played Campion in what would be the girls second to last Rounders match at Southam College. Southam batted first and struggled initially to score full Rounders as Campion fielded strong. However, after we built up our half Rounders, we began to take risks and eventually full Rounders were scored! Going into the fielding part of the first innings, Southam had scored 7 Rounders.
Campion started confident and scored lots of half Rounders, excellent fielding from A.Lyle and I.Fairhurst meant that big hits weren’t able to score easily. A.Zamfir fielded well whilst K.Black worked well with O.Constable to stump people at 2nd and there was some fantastic bowling from C.Placinta. Campion scored 6 1/2 leaving the second innings extremely close.
Southam started their second batting really well with A.Lyle, E.Cumberbatch and K.Black all hitting big, leaving our final score at 15 Rounders.
As we went to field N.Purnell and E.Cumberbatch worked well as back stop and first base to get out 2 Campion players. E.Sancee had a great catch out and A.Lovett bowled extremely well following on from the first innings.
Overall, Campion scores 12 leaving Southam taking the lead by 3 Rounders.
A great match overall. Thank you to the whole team for their efforts. Looking forward to the last match this evening against Kenilworth.
