Narrow Defeat for Maidens
Brislington 104 - 3, Marshfield 93 - 5
A full team of Maidens travelled to Brislington on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Marshfield chose to field first. We followed a policy of involving as many players as possible. 8 Maidens bowled; Sandra, Lisa and Jane took wickets, Amelia was bowling for a second match this season which is great news. Of our new team members this year Hannah, Ro-Anna, Rosie and Ann all bowled and contributed well.
Chasing 104 we looked to have an experienced batter and a less experienced batter on the field at any time. Lisa made 30 runs, a high this season for her, with Alyssa close behind with 24. Rosie, Belinda and Amelia faced some tough bowling but hung in there. Amy did well with 5 runs in partnership with Alyssa before being run out after 7 overs. Well done Amy.
An enjoyable match and great to see so many new players taking part. Next week we are at a softball festival in Frocester. Let’s show them what we are made of Maidens.
