On Monday, 20th of July, the junior girls had a league match against Terenure. Merrion won the toss and chose to bat first. Opening the batting was Niamh and Isabel. Isabel retired on 33 runs, Maria added to the score by getting 27 runs and Niamh, Lucy and Sophie contributed to the score nicely. Merrion raised a total of 111 runs, which was a great start to the innings.
In the second half of the game, Niamh and isabel opened the bowling with a pacey start, no pun intended.
Isabel bowled 2 great wickets to start the game. A few overs in, Maria and Sophie bowled some superb overs. Next up was lucy and Alice. Alice bowled a brilliant ball, seriously sending some bales to Wales! Lucy bowled some beautiful line and length on every ball she bowled.
Following on from that was Hannah and Caoimhe.
On Hannah’s first ball, the batsmen chipped the ball to the wicket keeper, Caoimhe made a outstanding one handed catch. On the fielding front, the junior girls set the pitch to success. We were lucky to have some minor girls step up today including; Alice, Guilia, Sibha and Clara who were great in the field.
It was a very close game, Tetenure finished on a 103, meaning Merrion won by 8 runs.
