Stiff Joints the champions from Oddballs
The final rounders game of the season was played last Thursday. The Rabble batted first and with slow but steady scoring from all the 9 team players the total gradually increased to 19 rounders before all the team were out.
Kelly Bowley took the honours with the highest score of 5.5. The Belles of the Ball failed to match the consistency of the Rabble, several players were caught out with well taken catches and the hitting never put the Rabble under too much pressure. Failing to match the Rabble’s score the Belles were forced to follow on. A similar scenario in the second innings with the same results saw the Belles finally score a total of 12 rounders, with Clare Will heading the scoring with 3.5 rounders. Players of the match were Beci Clish (Rabble) and Poppy Headland (Belles of the Ball)
The rounders season has run reasonably smoothly other than three weeks when matches were cancelled due to wet weather. A closely contested season with some excellent hitting and fielding. Congratulations to all teams who took part. Stiff Joints were declared Champions, but only on rounders difference from the runners up, the Oddballs. Trophies to be presented on Thursday.
