The Women's team faced a trip up to Edinburgh for their second Premier League match on Sunday for a game against Royal High Corstorphine but were on the wrong end of some strong performances from the home side.
The fortunes did not favour the combined side from Dumfries Cricket Club and Galloway Cricket Club as they lost the toss, were asked to bat first and lost wickets early. The Scotland Eagles players were to the fore for RHC on the day and opening bowler Beal went on to claim three wickets whilst Orla Montgomery top scored for the visitors with 16.
The first change bowling of Scotland squad leg-spinner Farooq, on debut for RHC, stopped a middle order revival with an excellent diving caught and bowled, and followed that with two more wickets. However the visitors did reach the half century before being all out.
Immediate wickets were required in the second innings but only Rosy Ryan was able to achieve that, removing Levenson LBW for 22. Nevertheless the bowlers, Rosy Ryan, Orla Montgomery, Katy Anderson and Niamh Muir bowled well, with good support from the fielders, in the limited overs available before RHC reached their required total.
The side will look to bounce back on Sunday with their next fixture at George Watsons. On the day the Ashleigh Building Player of the Match was Orla Montgomery.
