Match Report Year 7/8 Girls Summer Tournament 2012

McGlashan Development V Mackay Development

The conditions were overcast and with a cold southerly. It was fortunate the tournament was being played at Christchurch Boys’ High with reasonable shelter and good ground conditions.

Mackay won the toss and asked McGlashan to bat. The MacKay attack was led by the medium pace of Courtney Wiseman and the leg-spin of Aimee Shaw. Aimee claimed the first wicket of Grace Long with the score at four with a well taken catch by Gabby Sullivan in the gully, a coach’s dream leg-spin trap. Cate Bruce quickly followed with the score at five, bowled by Courtney. 

Lily Bray came to the wicket and with Emma Hunt put on a 57 run partnership with some excellent shots through mid-wicket. Emma Palmer made the break-through by bowling Emma Hunt for 28. McGlashan reached 135 for 6 before losing the last three wickets for only two more runs. 

There were excellent innings from Lilly Bray who was initially retired and returned to score 40, and Rachel Davidson, who scored 22 runs with some good shots through the point region. They were ably supported by Sarah Asmussen who was 13 not out at the end. McGlashan scored 137, all out with one over to go.

Mackay’s the bowling was steady, although it fell away after the good start with a lot of bowling being rather short. Mikayla Lewis had excellent figures of 3/12 with Courtney Wiseman 1/13 off four overs. Sophie Holt and Jenny Stewart both bowled 1/9. Paige van Beurten has a very good consistent bowling technique. Five catches were taken: two by Gabby. 

MacKay’s batting got off to a poor start due to some excellent bowling by Rachel Davidson (2/13) and Lily Bray (2/6). Sophie Holt was first to go, bowled by Rachel with the score at eight. From there wickets fell regularly. At one stage Mackay was struggling at 25 for 5. 

MacKay crawled to 45, through some determined batting by opener Gabby and initially Jessica Simmons, who held up an end before being bowled. At 45/6 the prospects were not good for MacKay, but Jenny Stewart (12 retired hurt) and Emma Palmer (28 not out) along with Gabby (49 not out) had other ideas. 

Jenny had to retire hurt after taking a fast ball on the wrist. Emma Palmer and Gabby, who returned after retiring, scored the remaining runs. Some outstanding batting was shown by both batsmen with Emma being very strong in front of the wicket, and gaining confidence as she went on. McKay reached the winning total of 138 in the 31st over.

McGlashan’s bowling had started very strongly but got a little loose once some pressure went on from the MacKay batsmen. Cate Bruce chipped in with 1/6; both Emma Hunt and Sarah Asmussen also bowled well without much luck. The team was well led by Rachel Davidson who was tireless in the field and she was not going to go down without a fight.  

Overall a very good game with the win to MacKay: a good example that you don’t ever give up, even at 25 for five when winning looked doubtful.

Mackay Emerging (101 all out) v Tahuhu Emerging (55 all out)

Tahuhu won the toss and put Mackay into bat.

Mackay opening batters started the innings well, scoring from some sneaky running and positive batting. Jenna Waghorn came in and punished the bowlers for a few overs, scoring 33 of 23 balls before being dismissed from a slower flat ball from Hope Milnes-Win, who also dismissed Mia Harrison with another good ball later in the innings. The wickets kept falling at quite consistent intervals, although the score kept ticking over nicely. They were dismissed for 101 in the 25th over.

Tahuhu had a rough start with Maeve Gerathy and Rachael Pullan being dismissed by some good straight bowling by Jenna Waghorn. Caitlin Davidson threw in a few maidens, which made the run chase quite hard from the start. Ellie Firth stayed at the crease for a good amount of time, stabilising the innings with Jodie Dean. Elizabeth Cross threw in a gem in the middle of the innings, staying in for 30 balls, just about to retire at the end of the over, when Grace Walding bowled her. Although the rest of the batters stayed at the crease for a good amount of time, they struggled to get the bowlers away. They were dismissed for 55 in the 21st over.

Day  - 26th February

Girls Year 7/8 Summer Tournament

Satterthwaite Dev. vs McGlashen Dev.

Win to Satterthwaite 181/6 vs 124 all out

Satterthwaite batted first and set up a great platform of 181 after 35 overs. Melissa Banks was 30 off 44 N/O, Sophie Gray 35 off 41 retired and Daisy Tedinnick 32 off 26 R/O. Everyone contributed to the batting effort. The McGlashen team had some good bowling figures, notably Rachel Davidson 2/8 off 5 overs and Emma Hunt 2/13 off 5 overs. Grace Long took a catch in the field and Samantha Fairhall a run out.

In their batting innings, McGlashen was competitive for the first 12 overs, but lost too many wickets to sustain their attack. Rachel Davidson hit 32 off 49 and Emma Hunt 13 off 19 and 14 off 16N/O. Samantha Fairhall hit 15 off 17. The Satterthwaite fielding effort was good with Melissa Banks taking 3/20 off 4 overs and Phoebe Spiers 0/4 off 3 overs. Melanie Puckett and Melissa both achieved caught and bowled figures with a catch for Megan Meltzer and run out by Melanie. 

Tahuhu Emerging 102/5 V Mackay Emerging 101/4

The day may have been grey for the second match between Tahuhu Emerging and Mackay Emerging, but the passing showers did little to dampen the red hot finale to the match with Tahuhu taking the win by a single run, having been well beaten the previous week.

Tahuhu was invited to bat by Mackay in reversal of the previous weeks proceedings. Sydnee Edwards was unlucky to be run out off the first ball of the match after some quick thinking by Lydia O’Callaghan and keeper Beth Loper. Tight bowling by Mackay, including successive maidens from Jenna Waghorn, restricted the scoring rate of Tahuhu but Hope Milnes-Win 11 no and Madeline Humm 2 took the team thru to the tenth over when Madeline (about to retire) was caught by Stella Reid off the bowling of Ruby Malcolm. Stella then dismissed Shannon Germon 0 off the last ball of her next over to see Tahuhu at 3/17 after 11 over’s. Jodie Dean 13 (bowled Jenna Waghorn), Elizabeth Cross 15 no and Ellie Lovett 8 no played some nice strokes to see Tahuhu arrive at the 26th over with the score at 80/4. Rachel Pullan was dismissed with a fantastic caught and bowled effort from Lucy Seaford. With Tahuhu playing one girl short, Mackay invited Sydnee Edwards 19 no to bat again and with Maeve Gerathy 3 no they quickly built the total up to the final score of  102/5, including 4 cracking fours from Sydnee.

Mackay started the run chase at a good clip with Grace Walding 17 and Elena Firth 13 until Grace was caught at mid-wicket by Sydnee Edwards off the bowling of Madeline Humm. Jenna Waghorn 34 was striking the ball particularly well with stoic support from Beth Loper 0, both were retired not out. Mackay was beginning to  look comfortable until the economical Jodie Dean bowled Mia Harrison 0 with a lovely full delivery. With 18 runs required off the last 5 over’s, Captain Maeve Gerathy bought her fielders in close, two sharp run outs by Ellie Lovett and Rachel Pullman swung the balance toward the fielding team , then a boundary each from Caitlin Davidson 8 and Stella Reid 10 put the pressure back on Tahuhu. With just 7 runs to defend in the last over Captain Gerathy handed the ball to Sydnee Edwards, Mackay was able to score 6 of the runs required including a 4 off the last ball by Stella, giving the victory to Tahuhu by just one run !
