PSSA Girls Cricket Round 2 Gunnedah Fields

On March 23rd 2009 round 2 of the PSSA cricket was played against Gunnedah South at Donnelly Fields, Gunnedah. After winning the toss, we elected to bat. K Cornish opened and batted extremely well hitting fours and sixes consistently notching up a score 40 not out. She was supported by J Kennedy scoring 4 runs before being stumped. The girls played in the true spirit of the game but once again sundries scored well. Gunnedah South batted competently displaying aggressive skills with 2 batters retiring both with 40 runs a piece. Our bowlers had difficulty getting accuracy on the pitch for some of the overs but delivered other balls that were easy targets for the Gunnedah South girls. S Brown bowled well at 0–10 for 2 overs. As their coach, I was impressed with the gregarious nature of the team and their willingness to put in the hours during training. We look forward to using their skills in the cricket challenge at the end of the year.
