Chenies U12 Girls vs Holmer Green
By Julie Pickard
Another great Team performance by Chenies Girls!
The Chenies Girls U12 players should be very proud of their team performance against Holmer Green this evening. Once again they showed great support for each other on the field, with constant up beat talk and quick compliments for good skills and encouraging comments to overcome nerves when things didn't go quite as planned first time!
Playing under Captain Emily, the girls batted first and knocked up a great total of 261 Runs. Batting highlights came from Caitlin and Sophia who scored 3 Runs each and the final batting pair, Emily and Lily who moved the total from 237 to 261 including scoring 2 lovely boundaries. Other run scorers were Lara, Daisy and Sophia.
One of the great moments in the field was a near catch by Emily off Phoebe's Bowling! Bowling performances were excellent all round! Particular mention to Lily for getting a Maiden! Caitlin's accurate and straight bowling gave her the only Wicket of the match. Other great Bowling skills were displayed by Sophia, Daisy, Emily and Sophie and particular mention for Connie and Poppy who were both playing their first full match for the team and showed perfect line and length!
Holmer Green may have won the match, but the Chenies Girls are learning quickly, listening well and putting into practice new skills each time they walk out onto the field! Well done!
