Maidens Bowl Potterne Over!
Marshfield 97 for 1 Potterne 96 for 7
Captain Amy steered us to victory against our regular opponents from Potterne. Particularly sweet as Potterne beat us by one run at our last outdoor match. It was a close match, won in the 19th over.
Marshfield really struggled to get a team together and played with 7. Potterne kindly lent us a couple of fielders to reduce the pain. Amy Zerk joined us to play for the very first time – great fielding Amy – we hope to see you again. Anne Bond played her third match with us and we hope to coax her to training too. Emma from Phoenix was up for a match after hers was cancelled and we were grateful for the support. Emma and Lisa batted an impressive 18 overs together. Emma scoring 37 runs and Lisa 30 runs including 4 fours. Best score in your time at Marshfield Lisa?
Potterne lent us a couple of fielders which made all the difference so when they asked if the small boy could field for them it felt mean to say not. A mistake of course! That lad ran like the wind and saved many fours.
Amy was our top bowler taking 3 fabulous wickets. Lisa had a great match; not only super batting but taking two wickets and two catches too. Sandra and Emma took the other two wickets. Lucy bowled again and is coming on famously; straight and long seems to be the norm now.
Support by Mike Threadgill umpiring and Emma Billet scoring was much appreciated.
Roll on our next match v YMCA on the 4th June.
