Netherfield Womens Softball Team play their first ever games.
The Netherfield Ladies travelled to Carnforth for their first Softball League Day. The format of the day was a round robin against Arnside Maidens, Carnforth Ladies and Burneside, with every club to host a Softball Day. The Netherfield team got off to a great start beating Arnside in a close game which came down to Arnside needing 6 to draw of the last ball but tight bowling from Louise Foster ensured Netherfield won the first game! Notable batting performances from Lisa Metcalf and Lynsey Goodyear who both scored lots of boundaries! Grace Airey opened the bowling cleaning up the Arnaide batters in the first over with super accuracy! The second game was against Burneside, this time the boundary count came from Emma Foster and Zoe Dempsey who cleared the boundary with ease and scored lots of runs however we just fell short losing by 8 runs. The final game of the day in the blazing sunshine was against Carnforth who had won both of their games, we did not get off to a great start losing wickets early on however Lisa scored some boundaries toward the end of her innings and in came Louise and Claire who manipulated the field scoring lots of quick singles! Grace Airey and her mum Caroline produced a magnificent partnership as Grace took charge in telling mum what to do! Unfortunately Carnforth had some very strong hitters and they managed to win the game but it was all played in high spirits and a great day was had by all!
The next day is Friday 5th July where we travel to Arnside!
