Sports Report - Year 10 Rounders
Tonight we hosted the year 10 rounders as Blake didn't have a team so could not host.
Haygrove arrived first and after a quick warm up we got going. Scoring didn't come easily or quickly. Haygrove were fast onto the ball in the field and made few mistakes. On ball 5 we scored our first rounder followed by three half rounders. Another whole rounder was scored on ball 13, not a good one due to a rare fielding mistake, but we'll take it! No further points followed from us, scoring just 3.5 rounders.
Haygrove came into bat and scored three and a half rounders from the first 9 balls. We struggled to get the ball in quickly from the deep field and judgement errors were made close to the posts. Haygrove won 7-3.5
We next played King Alfreds, and against our usual choice, fielded first. They scored 1 rounder and 5 halfs in the first 10 balls. Again we struggled with our fielding and made some close fielding mistakes to enable KAS to score two and a half more. (6)
Iona was first to bat for us and leathered the ball straight at the bowler, through sheer self preservation of her face, the bowler managed to keep hold of the catch and Iona had to walk. We had a better run of points during the second half of the innings and scored a few halfs and 2 halfs given to us through no balls. I think the bowlers hands were still stinging from her previous catch. Final score KAS 6 CTS 4.
The girls were a pleasure to spend the time with. They have put in a lot of practice during the last few weeks at lunchtime and we hope it pays off in the next tournament.
Squad, Iona, Olivia, Polly, Tiana, India, Aleigha, Emily, Antonia, Eva, Jess, Xena, Angel and Kristi.
