Friday night saw the Chargers in action, away to Grayswood Hawks, in a women’s softball cricket match rearranged from earlier in the season. The sun was shining as the Chargers won the toss and chose to field.

Bowling duties were shared amongst the team, including Jenny, who was playing in her first league match this season. The Hawks did some great batting, finding the boundary several times. The Chargers took 3 wickets; one from some brilliant bowling by Trace, and Sophie took two with a great catch and quick bowling.

Grayswood Hawks finished their innings on a net score of 303.

After a quick refreshment break, the Chargers went into bat. First pair Trace and Marija, batting together for the first time, opened the scoring with 22, losing one wicket. Next up, Susie and Al added 16. Third pair, Becca and Pippa also added 16, without loss. 

As fourth and final pair Sophie and Jenny went into bat, it was rather nerve-wracking as Grayswood’s score was tantalisingly in view. The loss of two wickets meant the match came down to the last ball. The pair took a single to finish on a net score of 303 and tie the match!

A great evening of cricket was had by all!

Chargers’ player of the match was Jenny; for a great all round performance in her debut this season – congrats Jenny! And thank you to Mark for kindly umpiring for us.

Match details: away to Grayswood Hawks, 1st July.
