Our Under 15 team produced two determined performances against some strong opposition in their outdoor cricket finals this week.
They chased 78-1 in their first match against Upton Hall School FCJ, making 75-1 in their 8 overs. Despite our key opening batswomen Freya and Jess having to retire, we managed a respectable 71-5 in reply, meaning we lost by just 7 runs.
In our second contest, against Birkenhead School, we also batted second chasing 83-3. Freya played another sterling innings before she had to retire, but the team’s efforts just fell short, finishing on 74-7, a loss of 9 runs.
Team Manager, Mr B Taylor, reports that both matches were: ‘really close and very tense as only a few runs were needed to win in the final overs of each game’.
Well done on a great effort team involved were: Maddie (Captain), Jess, Jess, Jess, Freya, Cora, Grace, Lauren and Mollie May.
