ARCC Girls in 9 wicket victory over Bledlow
After winning the toss team captain Shannon Lewickyj-Spicer elected to bowl first in dark and gloomy conditions and with rain forecasted it was agreed to shorten the match to 15 overs.
ARCC who were fielding first really fought hard to take a number of wickets and with some great fielding by the team kept Bledlow to scoring just over 2 runs an over. With rain now starting to fall this made bowling and catching the ball very difficult. The team captain Shannon Lewickyj-Spicer and Vice Captain Aimee Diab really got the team to focus and work well together. With a first appearance for the ARCC Girls as a new player Lucy Johnson was the wicket keeper and made some excellent stops behind the stumps
Shannon took 2 wickets along with Lottie Shaw taking a wicket. The teams fielding got a number of catches and in particular was a hard catch by Joe Davies and a superb throw in by Georgia Fenwick for a run out to leave Bledlow on 36 for 4 from their 15 overs.
In reply Aston Rowant openers Shannon Lewickyj-Spicer and Liam Hester set about chasing down the 37 runs needed for the win. With more rain forecasted the opening pair didn’t hang around and tried to score off every ball. They had moved the score onto 33 when Shannon was out caught for 8. Next in at number 3 was Aimee Diab who hit the winning 4 with her first shot to the boundary leaving ARCC girls winners by 9 wickets leaving Liam on 18 not out with over 9 overs spare.
This was a really good team performance in very difficult conditions, well done to all the team.
Many thanks for all the helpers involved.
