County League Athletics – Match 3

On Tuesday 17th May it was Bushey Meads turn to host a County league match with the event taking place at the Woodside Stadium.

Junior Girls v WGGS (Friendly) HOME Mrs Cartledge

Result : Loss
Squad : R Chandarana, V Melero, L Smyth, S Frouel, V Hill, S Doran, S Zuchowski ,I Palan, V Anand, I Diston, J Neighbour-Owen
Player of Match : S. Doran for excellent bowling- voted by the opposition.

This was the first game of the season after a long break from competitive games due to covid. The girls fielded first and had to deal with some very strong batters. Risha demonstrated some excellent fielding with accurate long throws and impressive sprints to retrieve the ball. In our batting innings the girls began to settle and we gained a few rounders. In our second fielding the girls improved and managed to get a few players out and Watford girls scored less rounders. The girls batting also improved and we scored more in the second innings. The girls are learning the tactics and the girls most importantly enjoyed the experience of a competitive match. Well done to all players for their hard work and determination on the pitch.

Senior Girls v WGGS (Friendly) HOME Mrs Cooper
Date : Wednesday 18th May 2022
Result : Loss
Squad : L.Wheaton, A.Ashar, Ka.Chandarana, Kr. Chandarana, M.Gohil, K.Ashby, E.Pearson, E.Avci, M.Cozens, A.Chaudhry
Player of Match : M.Gohil – voted for by the opposition

Comment: It was so lovely to see the girls back playing competitive rounders fixtures after 2 years. The combined year 9/10 squad took on WGGS with great spirit and a desire to win. Losing the toss they were put into bat and made a really impressive start to the game with rounders scored a plenty. A couple of lucky out’s put the team under pressure and with only 3 players left in, the innings was ended 3 balls short of the allocated 30. WGGS started slowly but soon found their feet and with some uncertainty in the BMS fielding, due only to a lack of match play, WGGS took a commanding lead at the end of the first innings.
In the second half both teams stepped up the intensity in the field, limiting their opponents scoring. Although the BMS team came out with a loss there are lots of positives to take into next week’s match and the most important thing were the smiles on the girls faces to be back playing rounders. Well done everyone involved.
