U9 Boys’ Kwik Cricket v South Lee
On Wednesday 11th May we finally got the season underway with a short trip to South Lee. I lost the toss and was sent in to bat. We posted a decent total of 278 with three of our pairs scoring over 20 runs; George and Oliver 26, Sami and Herbie 28, Ashley and I 20.
We now needed to defend our total by bowling straight and not giving away any unnecessary extras. Their opening pair were very good and got to 237 after 4 overs. This placed them in a good position and put some pressure on us. We started to panic in the field andour bowling was erratic which led to South Lee passing our score in the 2nd last over. The final score was 278 to Moreton Hall and 281 to South Lee.
Well done to all, especially the few who played their first ever cricket match. Thank you to Mr James for umpiring, parents for supporting and South Lee for match teas.
