The year 7 girls hosted Dene Magna for their opening game of the rounders season and were pleased to take the win. After losing the toss, we were put into bat first and the girls gave a great batting display.
We hit a rounder from our first ball and this set the tone for the remaining 21 balls. Credit must go particularly to Tia Watts who scored whole rounders from every one of her batting opportunities. When we took to the field, we looked organised and in control for the majority of the innings. Great composure from Kayliegh Edwards as bowler saw Dene Mgana handed very few easy points and a superb outfield combination of Maisie Beach, Tia Kear and Megan Cotton prevented any big points being scored.
A fantastic opening to the rounders season from these girls. Well done!
