On Saturday 11th August Phoenix U11 girls played YMCA at Claremont Road. The team for the match was Amy Collins (c), Ella Pasley, Sarah White, Molly Byrne, Marie Cormican, Eva Watters, Ali Keenan and Mary McLoughlin. YMCA won the toss and decided to bat first. All the Phoenix girls bowled at least one over. Eva and Ali both got a wicket whilst some sharp fielding by Sarah led to a run out. YMCA finished their innings with a total of 88 runs for 3 wickets.
Ella and Ali were the first batting pair for Phoenix and gave the team an excellent start, scoring 30 runs off their four overs. Marie and Eva batted second and brought the score on to 51. Molly and Amy then added 18 runs to the total but unfortunately lost 3 wickets. Sarah and Mary were the final batting pair. They needed 20 runs to win without loss of a wicket. They batted really well making the required runs in their first 2 overs. For the final two overs of the match the pair batted very sensibly, blocking all balls on the stumps and finished the match without loss of a wicket. The final score was 94 for 3 wickets.
Well done Phoenix Girls!!
