The wonderful Groen Geel club in Wassenaar hosted the Ladies Twenty20 Finals Day on Saturday 2 June. The Hilkamp women played the host team for 7th/8th place and unfortunately lost. On the heavy fields (it rained….a bit) Groen Geel got to 101, Hilkamp struggled to get runs and ended up on just 60, with Marije 11 and Jolien 16. Marlene took 2-20 (1 catch Jolien) and Jolien got 1-11, catch Marlene: good combination you two!
The final was VCC vs title defender Quick Haag, and what a final it was. VCC needed 1 run of 14 balls to win, conceded a maiden in the penultimate over, then lost 3 wickets and only off the last ball a very snappy short single was run: VCC T20 champion 2018. Then there were drinks, music, prize giving and a wonderful barbecue. Why was I so late back home that night….?
Zami 1 playing Groen Geel this Saturday: have fun in the Wassenaarse sun!
Hilkamp Ladies not joining the Hoofdklasse 40 overs league due to shortage of players, some of us (Jolien, Ingrid) will join another team (Ajax) to play a bit of cricket; what else can one do on sunny Saturdays during summer?
