UNDER 9 KWIK CRICKET V RIDDLESWORTH HALL
Wednesday, 5th June
The ‘A’ team batted first and we scored lots of boundaries. Jaybe was the top scorer with 28 runs and Benjy, Freddie Kelsey and I all managed to get into the twenties as well. We scored 289 runs in total.
We fielded very well and Riddlesworth scored 235 runs but because they arrived late we didn’t have time to complete all our overs. The match therefore ended in a draw although I feel we were definitely the better team and would have won. My man of the match is Freddy Williamson for some great all-round play. Well done team!
The ‘B’ team fielded first and I managed to get two wickets and Luke got the other. Riddlesworth scored 305 runs in total.
We were not able to complete our match because of time restrictions but we batted well scoring 258 runs in our eight overs. Freddie Hawkins top scored with 26 runs including a huge six. We still had eight overs to bat and I am sure it would have been a very close game had we completed the match. We drew the game in the end.
On Wednesday 5th June we played our first cricket match of the season against Riddlesworth Hall at home. I won the toss and chose to field first. We fielded and bowled well, with Kitty & Tabitha both getting a wicket. In total Riddlesworth Hall scored 324 runs.
After match tea it was our turn to bat. Everyone did well considering it was our first game and we were facing some under 11 players. Orla and Maddie deserve a special mention as they both scored boundaries. We scored 227 runs after 12 overs. Unfortunately we did not have time to play our final 12 overs and therefore we do not know who won the match.
I would suggest that we try to hit and run a bit more in our next match to increase our score.
Everyone played well but my girl of the game is Zoe for all round good play and her first match with us as at Glebe House School. Well played team.
U11 Rounders – Gracie-Mae’s team
On Wednesday the 5th of June St Hugh’s came to play a rounders match. I won the toss and chose to field first. In this innings we weren’t that alert, and that let St Hugh’s score 9.5 rounders.
Then we went into bat. On the first ball I scored a whole rounder. Eliza also scored a whole rounder and Sydney scored two more. We also scored 12 half rounders, giving us a total of 10.
In the second innings St Hugh’s scored 10.5 rounders. Sydney did a great catch, getting one of the St Hugh’s players out. We came into bat and once again I scored a rounder on our first ball, Eliza scored another rounder and Sydney scored two rounders. Emily, Sydney and I each scored a half rounder and Shayla and Eliza scored two half rounders each. Wealso gained fivehalf rounders from no-balls and obstruction. In total we scored 10.5 rounders.
The final score was St Hugh’s 20, Glebe 20.5. A really close game, but a great win, well done girls!
My man of the match is Eliza for scoring 4.5 rounders and getting the St Hugh’s ‘Man of the Match’.
