U11A Hallfield VS RGS  – Girl’s Cricket

A lovely sunny afternoon to have a cricket match at Hallfield against RGS. The girls lost the toss and were put into bat. There was positive batting from all of the team with much better calling and some great running between the wickets. Playing on the main cricket square the girls worked hard, contacted the ball well and defended the wicket well. 4’s were scored by Siona, Humaira and Angie. Olivia was particularly vocal and her batting partnership with Angie secured the most runs. Out in the field we produced some good bowling with better length and line throughout the team. As a result of quick thinking out in the field Olivia and Hana both took wickets with stumpings. There was good backing up from Zia, Anshi and Lucilla to set up a close finish. Unfortunately, at the end of the game RGS pipped us by 6 runs – 68-74. However, it was a great game which displayed the improvement made by the team.
Bowler of the Game was Siona and Batter of the game was Olivia.

U11B vs RGS The Grange, 66-64 Win

The U11B team played in an exciting game against RGS The Grange on a wonderfully sunny Wednesday afternoon this week. We started with fielding. Our girls played really well as a team together and managed to prevent RGS from scoring too many runs. There were few no balls and wides from the girls meaning they gave away very little to the opposition. We took 4 wickets in total with 2 excellent balls bowled from Anya and Dhiya respectively, and quick fielding work again from the same 2 girls, allowing Avni and Lamiya to make runouts. Levizah demonstrated excellent understanding of the game and backed up many balls which would have otherwise been lost to the field. Our 4 wickets meant we started the second innings on 20 runs. There was some excellent movement and teamwork from the girls. Some of us are still a little worried about making runs and potentially getting out but overall, it was good play. Hayat hit a boundary and her and Sahiba made an excellent pair in achieving singles. Ellen made some great hits and communicated loudly and clearly with her partner whether to run or stay. After all the runs had been tallied, Hallfield won by only 2 runs in total, 66-64. It was a wonderful demonstration of skills from all, but Dhiya was voted bowler of the game and Hayat as fielder. Well done girls!
