The Under 9 Girls were looking forward to their final fixture of the Rounders Season against Beachborough. They were very nervous as they knew the Beachborough team was very strong, however, they were looking forward to the challenge. It took a little while for the girls to get into their strides, and in the first innings 4 girls were out. Beachborough had a well trained backstop to 1st post throw, so the girls had to be really quck. However, when it came to us fielding, Beachborough also had some poor hits, so we managed to get into our stride, until Beachborough warmed up a little more. In the first innings we were losing 8 ½ - 2 ½. We were still in high spirits though and now we knew who the big hitters were and Beachboroughs tactics we were ready for the second innings. Hannah and Chibugom both had good hits and we took risks which worked to our advantage. Chibugom managed to score 2 ½ rounders herself in the second innings! We also fielded better. The girls should be proud of their performance.
The Grove: 7½
Beachborough School: 17½
