U13 Mollie Dive Round 6 v Blacktown

Sundays game was against Blacktown in Blacktown. Most of the girls got there early especially Trin and Reggie who were keen to get an early warmup on the flying fox 🦊. As we all settled down Sonia and Tilly went over to do the toss 🏏We won and elected to bat. Sonia and Trin head out with a half smile on their face nervous but excited to give it a red hot go. Unfortunately Blacktown came to play also and there good bowling dismissed our top order and we were 5/16 before we knew it. Luckily Indi and Ebony dug in and fought hard and we slowly started to get some runs and build up a target 🎯 In the end we were all out for 76 of our 30 overs which was a good effort given how we started. Ebony top scored on 29 ,Indi 12 and Emily 11 adding valuable runs 🔥

We went out to bowl with a little fight inside. Tilly started it off with a clean 🧽 bowled in first over. Then in the 5 over Sonia came to play with the awesome catch off Tilly’s bowling. We steadily took wickets but we couldn’t quite slow down their run rate enough. We managed to get 6 wickets in total but they scored 80 of 25.5 overs. Good catching good fielding and overall a good game. We just have to work of trusting ourselves more  as well as practicing our defence shots!

Watch out Blacktown we’ll get you next time 💪🤫🤝🤙
