U11A rounders v St Gabriel’s

On a gloriously sunny afternoon the U11A rounders team played St Gabriel’s.  We had encountered this school on the netball court, but not on the rounders pitch, so we were a little unsure as to what to expect.  St Gabriel’s won the toss so elected to field, leaving us to bat first.  St Swithun’s batted strongly with a total of 13½ rounders scored in the first innings.  St Gabriel’s then went in to bat and St Swithun’s demonstrated very solid fielding only allowing the opposition to score 4½ rounders.  The second innings continued in a similar style with the final score:

St Swithun’s  22½   St Gabriel’s 7½.

Players of the match were chosen by our opponents who elected Tallulah Jeffes, for her strong batting, and Jess Gordon for excellent fielding at second post.  Very well done to all the girls on a high scoring game.
