Week 7 - Friday 30 November
Girls Squad: - Pulteney 37 was defeated by Scotch College 2/82
Best bowling: Jeanne Lombard 1/15, Lilly Flannagan 1/13
The Pulteney girls came up against an improved Scotch College team this week. It was pleasing to see several of our bowlers decrease the number of wides they bowled as we were able to reduce our extras. Jeanne Lombard impressed in her first game, clean bowling a Scotch batter and taking an excellent catch in the deep. Maddy Ashby was once again very reliable behind the stumps. Several of our batters made starts in their innings, but unfortunately no one was able to capitalise and make a big score. Charlotte Martin impressed with her tenacity as she almost made it to retirement, but was unfortunately bowled near the end of the innings.
Week 6 - Friday 23 November
Girls Squad: - No game - rained out
Week 5 - Friday 16 November
Girls Squad: - Pulteney 1/32 was defeated by Pembroke 0/81
The Pulteney girls came up against a very strong Pembroke side who had some experienced players who hit the ball very hard. We held up well in the field, led by some excellent work on the boundary by Jessie Aldridge, but unfortunately we were unable to hang on to some very tough catches. Paige Cowles did an excellent job as stand-in wicket keeper. We batted with a lot of grit and determination as we faced some fast bowlers who handed out their fair share of bruises to our girls. It was so pleasing to see the team value their wickets so highly, and we did a fantastic job to only lose one wicket throughout the innings.
Week 4 - Friday 9 November
Girls Squad: - Pulteney 3/53 defeated Pembroke 3/42
Best batting; Maddi Ashby 15 n.o, Jessie Aldridge 10 n.o
Best bowling; Camryn Dudley 1/5, Sophie Rundle 1/10
Pulteney once again got off to a very solid start with aggressive hitting and running between wickets by Jessie Aldridge and Maddi Ashby. Maddison Woolley helped the momentum continue in the middle of the order and we finished with a strong score to defend. Our fielding innings started well with Camryn Dudley taking a wicket with her fourth ball. The girls fielded well with good return throws to the keeper throughout the innings. Jessie Aldridge effected a run out, assisted by Maddi Ashby and Maddison Woolley took what can only be describe as a screamer at mid-on, which stemmed the flow of runs. A wonderful second match for the team, and it was great to see Laura Fitzpatrick and Sarah de Jong play so well in their first ever cricket match.
Week 3 - Friday 2 November
Girls Squad: - Pulteney 4/79 defeated St Aloysious (3) 4/37
Best batting: J Aldridge 23 retired, C Dudley 10 retired
Best bowling: M Woolley 1/3, T Evans 1/5, C Martin 1/6
The Pulteney girls got off to a great start with a convincing win against St Aloysius. We had many girls playing their first game and the positive attitude displayed by the team was fantastic. The team fielded well and restricted SAC to a very low score. Camryn Dudley led from the front with a run out and a catch, whilst Maddison Woolley and Charlotte Martin both picked up their first ever wickets. Jessie Aldridge made a blistering 23 runs off only 15 balls before being retired, and, with Camryn Dudley's 10 retired, the girls were able to pass the SAC total very easily. Special congratulations to Alannah Grasso, Lilly Flannagan, Miesha Rollison, Sophie Rundle and Maddison Woolley for playing their first ever game of cricket.
