3rdXI lose to Loretto

A tight game of cricket in Musselburgh!

On a cold, blustery, and rainy day the third XI took to the field against Loretto. With Cargilfield being asked to bowl first, conditions weren’t easy with an increasingly heavy ball and strong winds. There were some strong showings with the ball, especially from Will G and Lachie, who were conservative throughout their overs. Finn also managed to complete three run outs which was impressive! The fielding from the boys was very good in the tough conditions, with the runs being limited as much as possible. Having been set a target of 80, after tea Cargilfield took up the willow. Zac and Will C opened the batting well, with quick singles being taken against some impressively quick bowlers. Too many dot balls however, meant that the target was further and further out of reach and unfortunately the team fell short by the end of the 20 overs. Onwards and upwards for the next fixture!
