Sports Report - Yr 7 Rounders Thurs
The yr 7 girls had their first experience of rounders matches on Thursday evening. A very new team excitedly arrived at Haygrove and were soon organised into a fielding formation and well on their way to limiting Haygrove to only 4 1/2 rounders with some strong bowling from Freya Jones and work at backstop from Rileigh Andrews. In the batting innings the girls demonstrated that they had listened well and the first 2batters ,Freya and Ava ,exploited the no balls and hit and scored-still 20 good balls to go and already 2up!! The girls continued to hit and run cleverly and scored 7 -first win completed.
In the second game v BCA the girls again batted well making BCA work hard in the outfield. Their fielding became a little frantic as all shouted instructions. However the girls focussed and kept BCA at bay. Win no. 2!!
The final game v KAS saw everything 'click' . The girls scored 13 rounders in 20 good balls with everyone scoring at least 1/2 rounder-great hitting, clever running and lots of squealing!! The fielding was also more controlled-good fielding in the outfield, catching and sensible throwing. This kept KAS score to just 4. -3wins from 3games and a tournament overall win!!!
