Under 11 pairs cricket v Hereford Cathedral School
We opened the batting. All pairs send the ball at pace to the boundary for four. We were looking for opportunities to score an additional run whenever possible that resulted in a total of 316. Alex and Olivia H scored the most runs today, 30 off 3 overs. Lana and Rosanna notched up 22. Our batting was strong. Well played Team!
Then we fielded and it looked fine when HCJS only scored 2 off the opening over that Livvy bowled. Livvy and Rosanna both took stunning catches. Alex threw the ball in at the wickets to get another player out. Livvy bowled two wickets, Violet and Olivia one. However as we continued our fielding, Hereford closed the score down and only needed 15 off the last over to win. The team remained calm, focused on the ball, took one wicket and then we made a catch! Superb timing to save the match and secure a win.
The final score was Abberley 316, Hereford 300. A great match to finish the season.
