Last Tuesday marked the first time the Vine have fielded an all girls hardball team in the club’s long history..
The Vine, captained by Rosie H won the toss and decided to bowl first.
Tight bowling from Darcey L, Lauren J, Sophie S, who took a wicket with her first ball, and Lucy B, who did the most damage taking 3 wickets, help restrict Penshurst to 39 runs in their 16 overs. Darcy H kept wicket superbly in her first ever outing behind the stumps.
A great start by Penshurst saw then take 3 wickets in the first 4 overs. However Jemima H and Isobel F steadied the ship, before a good partnership between Darcey L and Darcey H was followed by the highest partnership of the match between Rosie H and Lucy B who scored 29 runs in 4 overs
The Vine finished on 77 running out comfortable winners.
