Chenies U12 Girls vs Chenies U10 Boys
By Julie Pickard
Win for the Chenies Girls!
it was perfect conditions for a great match between Chenies boys and Chenies Girls! Having won the toss Lily put the Boys in to bat and led the girls out onto the field to show off their bowling and fielding skills!
Lucy and Lois bowled first giving away very few runs and Lois notching up her first wicket bowling out Daniel. Sophie and Evie came next with Sophie claiming three more clean bowled wickets from Aayush and Niam. Sophia and Caitlin then took on Jamie and Dominic with Sophia taking three more wickets and a Run Out during Caitlin's overs. Daisy and Phoebe managed to keep Sidney to just 2 runs but Christopher hit two great boundaries making a top score of 11 runs. The last bowling pair, Lily and Lara took another 2 wickets from Elias but couldn't stop Alex getting a lovely boundary and getting second top score of 10 runs. So at the end of their innings the boys had 217 runs. The girls were feeling quietly confident!
Sophie and Evie kept the score positive in spite of some good fielding by the Boys earning them a Run Out. Caitlin and Sophia added more to the scoreboard even though Christopher bowled Caitlin. Phoebe and Daisy kept the score even with Dominic getting a wicket. Then Dominic and Jamie claimed another wicket each against Lucy and Lois. The score was 221 as the last batting pair came on the field, the match could still go either way....but in spite of Niamh bowling both Lily and Lara, the girls ran a great 3 and ended up 2 runs and 4 wickets ahead!
Great win and great game! Well done!
