Devon v Cornwall at Barton Cricket Club

First home game for the U17 girls with Cornwall winning the toss and put us into bat. Though the girls contributed to the score, most reaching double figures; it was Cornwall's Ellie Mitchelle (9-2-17-3), playing up, that caused problems for Devon. Evie Pitman (25*) batted with growing confidence with some good shot selection coming in at 8.

Sadly, Devon were bowled out in the 41st over for 124.

Thinking that 124 was a possible defendable score, unfortunately the free flowing of wides from Devon helped Cornwall to victory. Sophie Florides (9-3-21-3) and Maddie Holifield (9-2-12-1) were the most consistent. Most memorable was Ellie Holland (6-2-20-3), who in her first over bowled eight wides one after the other before taking a wicket. She continued to bowl showing her calmness under pressure and took a further 2 wickets and bowled 3 maidens.
