Sports Report - Year 8 Rounders
This evening was time for the year 8 rounders matches against King Alfred's, BCA and Haygrove.
Firstly, the girls faced King Alfred's, with Chilton deciding to bat first. Summer and Jodi scored two excellent rounders, with Eloise securing half. Whilst King Alfred's were strong in the field, we scored another half through two no balls. Then it was Chiltons' time to field. Jodi, Phoebe and Lexie were fantastic in the field, all securing catches. Chilton secured a win, 3-2.
Next Chilton faced BCA, leaving Haygrove (who are the strongest in the league) until last. Eloise scored a good rounder with her left hand hit, and then the BCA bowler felt the pressure, giving Chilton one rounder from no balls. It was then Chilton's turn to field, where Phoebe at backstop and Eloise at second post got several batters out. There was also a running catch from Hollie, meaning that Chilton scraped the win... 1 and a half to 1.
The final game was against Haygrove, who had been strong this evening, both batting and fielding. Chilton's batting was not on form and the total one and half rounders scored was all due to no balls by the Haygrove bowler. It was then time for Haygrove to bat, and they scored two rounders from the first 3 balls. The girls' heads went down, but they brought it back with everyone working hard in the field. Summer was a consistent bowler throughout all three games. The final score was 1 and a half to 4 and a half, but Chilton managed to get the closest to Haygrove from all three teams, which was great.
