Match Report
Salisbury Cathedral School Mixed-U13C vs  Stroud School, Romsey
On: Wednesday, 16 Jun 2021
Venue: Away

What a great game for some of our Year 8s to finish on. A win by 52 runs (268-216) with lots of great things to talk about. Stroud were a steady and well-matched opponent with a couple of fast bowlers and solid fielding.

We fielded first with some very good stops in the slips, great catches from Rosie and Alice and wickets taken by Eleanor and Alice. Stroud were out for 216. 5 outs in total and Stroud's best over took 10 runs. Best score of -12 with Elaenor in bowl and a very good -10 with Rosie P bowling - great effort girls! Grace's bowling was fast and accurate but she faced the strongest batting pair, seeing only 5 runs against her in 2 overs.

In bat we took lots of chances today which resulted in lots of 1s and 2s - great communication with all pairs. Stroud equalled our 5 outs but we hit more 4s and took a lot more 2s, taking advantage of misfielding. The highest scoring over of 12 came from Rosie P and Eleanor, closely followed by captain Johan and Eleanor on 11 runs. The strongest battign pair were Rosie P and Eleanor with 22 runs in 3 overs.

Shout outs to:

Johan for excellent and proactive coaching and great direction in the field;

For hitting 4s - Rosie Price (4), Johan, Eleanor and Max (2 each), Alice (1 cracking pull shot)

Batter of the match: Max

Fielder of the match: Grace

Coach's player of the match: Rosie Price for solid batting, high scoring, great running and a fab high ball catch.

Well done team - a great one to finish on!
