U11A rounders against Stroud

Congratulations to the U11A team on another successful rounders match, this time against Stroud School.  St Swithun’s fielded first and the girls showed excellent teamwork by covering the ball well, allowing Stroud to score just 3 rounders.  St Swithun’s then went into bat and, with very confident hitting, scored 8½ rounders.  The second innings saw Stroud bat more strongly to finish on a total of 9½.  St Swithun’s went in for their last innings knowing that they needed 1½ rounders to win.  Stroud’s fielding was much tighter so St Swithun’s had to work harder to score.  We did, however, secure 6 rounders to finish on 14½.
The final score was:

St Swithun’s  14½   Stroud 9½.

Player of the match was Alice Calder for her strong batting.
