U11 Cricket Team
Queensgate v Greenmount
Our U11 cricket team were in action on Wednesday @ Queensgate in the quarter finals of the schools cricket competition.
Queensgate opted to bat first and so our opening bowler Ollie stepped up to bowl having set the field. We have been working on our bowling and what a change this has made. Ollie took 2 wickets in his over, followed by Lennon with 1 wicket, Mateus 2 wickets, Zach 1 wicket and Charlie 3 wickets in the final over. Our other 3 bowlers Jaden, Jack and Finley bowled well and kept the run rate down and with some great fielding and catching we managed to keep Queensgate down to 229-9 wickets.
We had a target to chase and so needed to bat well on a fast wicket with a small boundary, which was open to high scoring from hitting 4s and 6s. Unfortunately this led to us giving away some catches by hitting out for the big scores. In fact we lost all 4 wickets to good catches, none of our batsman were bowled out in the game. Some impressive batting from all our players saw the score creeping up to put us within 3 runs with 2 overs to go. Ollie and Lennon came into bat to finish the game off and secure the win, with Lennon hitting an impressive 16 runs to take us well beyond the Queensgate total, leaving us with a final score of 249-4 wickets.
We will now face either Wooton or Newport in the semi finals, this game will be played at Greenmount.
” A very impressive performance today, well done to all of our players!”
