Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Girls-U10A vs  Holmewood House School
On: Wednesday, 22 May 2019
Venue: at Home

Today we were well-beaten by a better side. However, the girls improved throughout the match and learnt from the experience of playing such a tactically aware team. We batted first and were a little nervous, very tensed up. Jo-Jo CM scored half rounders and Octavia D went all the way round with some bold running. Everyone tried different fielding positions. Flora H did very well as bowler on her first go and Lottie B was secure at back stop. Hebe L and Henrietta G took 2 great catches each in the outfield. In the second innings we relaxed more and were striking the ball better. We were unfortunate in that we were often just out at second post because of slick fielding. Lottie B, Libby H, Octavia D, Flora H, Jo-Jo CM and Sydney W all scored in the second innings. Once HH started hitting, we did become a little tense and our throwing suffered, giving away important half and whole rounders. However, Henrietta G was always there to back up at 4th, Clara S bowled consistently, Polly H did some super fielding out at 2nd deep and Jo-Jo CM was secure and alert on 2nd post. Well done, girls.
