U14’s Rounders v Bournemouth Collegiate School

As the first games in this year’s rounder’s season, we have made a positive start.  The girls were all focussed on the roles and responsibilities their positions held and worked very successfully as a team.

There was lots of communication between the girls as they were fielding first, and they got all of the BCS players out by ball 18, having scored just 2 rounders!   Determined but sensible batting during our first innings saw the girls score a steady number of ½ rounders, and 2 full rounders set us in the lead at 8 – 2.

A change of players for the second innings and a more cautious approach by BCS batters saw them score more points and level the score at 8 – 8.  We knew that going into our last batting session, we only needed to score ½ rounder to win.  The girls kept their heads and played with confidence to score a further 8 rounders and secure the win.

Final Score    Moyles Court – 16   Leaden Hall 8
