West Devon v North Devon

On a grey and wet day at Ivybridge Cricket Club the North U13 Girls won the toss and chose to brave the weather in the field first. The West innings got off to a flyer thanks to the hard-hitting Rebecca Halliday who was making it hard work for the North bowlers. Rebecca raced to 50 and was ably supported by Jess Ford and Ciara O’Keefe to leave the West on 126-1 at drinks after 15 overs. Charlotte Lipscombe had taken the one wicket so far of Jess Ford. After some regrouping at the break the North rallied to produce an excellent fight back in the second part of the innings to keep things much tighter. Ruby Davis, Dani Rose and Maisie Hart all produced good economical spells of bowling to keep the run rate down. Rebecca Halliday continued on however and made her way to a fantastic 104 off just 60 balls. After Dani Rose bowled O’Keefe it was Amy Taylor who made the all important breakthrough of removing Halliday, which soon spelt the end for the West. Only one more wicket was required due to the West’s shortage of players and it came quickly as Maisie Hart bowled Olivia Bailey to leave the West finishing on 189 all out off 24.1 overs.

The North knew they had a tough score to chase and didn’t get off to the best of starts as Rebecca Halliday had Amy Taylor caught and bowled off the first ball. Grace Heard soon followed after being caught behind by Jess Ford off the bowling of Ciara O’Keefe. Sophie Gillies continued to play well and was joined by Issy George to put on a partnership to get the North back on track. Madi Leppard ended the partnership for the West though as Jess Ford took another catch to dismiss Issy George. The North batters struggled to support Sophie Gillies for the remainder of the innings as Ciara O’Keefe returned to take three more wickets to finish with 4-3 and Jess Ford came out from behind the stumps to take 2-10. The North ended up on 62 all out with Sophie Gillies, the opener, still standing after an excellent innings leaving her on 15no.

The West won the game by 127 runs but there was no doubt that the match would not have been possible at all without the brilliant help from the North girls who helped the West out in the field, due to their lack of manpower, so the game was awarded to the North side. Many thanks to the parents braving the weather to support the girls, Ivybridge CC for getting the game on despite the horrible conditions and Jon Sparkes for maintaining the constant supply of tea and coffee leaving the kitchen.

South Devon v East Devon

On a very cold morning at Ipplepen CC, the South and East's U13 met for the first District match of the season. Cold and wet under foot the South took to the field after winning the toss, putting the East into bat. Wonderful controlled batting from both openers, Maddie Holifield (50 ret.) and Emma Seaward (41) put the East in a very strong position right from the start. Confident batting and running between the wickets, the East were 107 before they lost their first wicket; and though they were to lose another wicket, they batted their overs finishing on a very respectable total of 181-2.

It was a tall order for the South to chase such a score posted by the East and their main aim was also to bat their overs. Charlotte Massey (captain) and Jemima Vereker did a sterling job of protecting their wicket and Jemima, though not scoring very many remained batting until the penultimate ball of the South's overs. Hollie Perkin(20) though batted confidently was dismissed by some sparkling bowling from Ellen Day (2-2-0-4).
The East won by 97 runs.
