Ellerslie Cricket Girls
For the past few weeks our Point England girls has been playing for the Ellerslie cricket club every Saturdays. On our first game it was hot and we were playing against Cornwall park, some of the girls were nervous because it's their first time, most of us were excited to play cricket again. During the game I was very impressed of how our girls were playing. After the game had finished we were announced the winner. We were ready to go to the McDonald's to buy something cold.
6 games went past and it was our last game for 2015, we were playing the first team we played, which was Cornwall park. Sadly they needed extra player so we gave them 2 of our players, Miss Va'afusuaga, our manager told us for the last 6 games they have been winning their games but lost against us. Some of our girls were nervous but our coach, Greg Va'afusuaga encouraged us to go out their have fun and try our best. Our captain Elizabeth had to do the toss it was either mountains or valleys, it was mountains and we were fielding first. Our fielding was pretty good and our bowling skills were awesome, we got heaps of wickets. Then finally it was our turn to bat, my batting partner was Elizabeth and we were up first. As their bowling's was slow Elizabeth and I could hit 6 and 4's and once I had hit a 6 but it was stuck in the bushes, when Elizabeth and I finished batting we got told that we had beat Cornwall park by scoring 66 runs. We were so amazed but their were more of batting partners waiting for their turns. At last our game was finished, and we finally went to the McDonald's. we had to leave early so that we can go home and get ready for the Ellerslie cricket club prize giving.
At the prize giving their were other teams who played for Ellerslie but in a different grade, there also prizes. I got heaps of cricket balls and a cricket bag. While our team was receiving their awards we were told that we were coming 1st "YAY!!". Throughout the prize giving we made friends and had fun playing with the sports gear. The prize giving finished and it was time for us to go home, we were sad because we won't have any more cricket games on Saturdays. We had fun playing cricket together, getting to each other better and especially communicating to win. I am looking forward to next years cricket games so we could have more fun.
