The results so far are:
- Marshfield v Pucklechurch 284-214
- Marshfield v UWE 280-276
- Marshfield v Old Bristolians 262-251
Last nights performance was a fantastic game that the Maidens were really chuffed to win against the more experienced Old Bristolians. Fabulous bowling from Lisa who scored a wicket with her first ball. Two great catches; Alyssa wickying caught a short fast chip off the bat with great reactions; Millie bowled and caught a hard fast ball saving Lisa Pagett, the umpire, from having to duck. It is a pairs game and both Sandra/Alyssa and Anna/Lisa ran brilliantly scoring runs off most of their balls. Nina opened and kept her cool despite Jane, in a frenzy of excitement running her out not once but twice. Good to see Emily whacking the ball as we know she can – can’t wait to see her batting outside coming season. Watch this space to see if the Maidens can keep it up for their match next week.
Maidens lost to YMCA. Not a great match by the Maidens.
The Maidens lost to the more experienced Old Bristolians 249-227 in the final of the women’s indoor league. Team performance was a huge improvement on the week before. We scored the same runs as OBs but got out more than they did giving them 5 wickets whereas we only took 2.
We have all improved massively and are looking forward to translating our newfound skills onto grass. A great indoor tournament and to win 3 lose 2 and to play in the final is a really good result for us. Onwards and upwards.
