On Thursday 15th June, ten Lower 5 pupils played in the Cricket Scotland S3 Girls’ Tournament in Perth. The team started with a tough game against a strong Cargilfield team which they lost. However, the girls bounced back impressively to beat MES and Perth Grammar. A semi-final against Glasgow Academy came next and the girls played a great cricket match to win by 20 runs, with important late wickets taken by Issy and Ella.
The day finished with a repeat of the first game, a re-match with Cargilfield in the final. The team showed their progress throughout the day in all areas but were beaten by 17 runs by a very good team. Despite Mairi’s excellent batting and superb wicketkeeping from Becky, the girls left the tournament with the silver medals. Well done to the whole team on their performances!
Team: Samanthi, Florence, Issy, Ayza, Becky, Mairi, Bella, Ella, Sofia, Hannah
