JUNIOR ROUND UP – 19 June 2022

U13 Girls Sunday 19 June
On a wet and cold morning Scarlett won the toss and decided to bat. Her and Grace E were the first pair and Scarlett was bowled first ball by Lowri Whittaker. She soon put that behind her and scored 20. Her and Grace gave us the quick start with 37 off the first 4 overs.
Bella and Grace I were next and tried to rotate the strike and took advantage of some misfields but had a run out off the last ball so we were 44 at the half way stage. Emilia and Isla then upped the rate taking the score to 69 for the last pair.
Amelia and Evie carried on in the same fashion with ‘Tiny’ hitting her second ball for 6. Some good running turning 1’s in to 2’s taking us to 91.
We lost 4 wickets and they gave us 33 extras so really positive that we improved from the last game.
Scarlett got the reply underway and forced their opener to retire for an over after a quick yorker hit flush on the foot. Scarlett finished with 2-6 off 3 overs.Evie struggled with the wet ball. Amelia, Emilia and Grace I were tight and bowled great lines so the scoring was slow. Isla picked up 4-12 off 3 incl two in two balls. Grace E bowled tight and got a wicket with the last ball of the match finishing with 1-8 leaving Leyland on 43.
We took 7 wickets and gave 20 extras which is down from the last games so great improvements.
