Match Report

Won 258-218

A very excited group of children travelled to The Lindum to play the first fixture in well over a year in glorious sunshine.

St. Hugh's batted first each pair facing 4 overs:

  • Dan & Henry scored 55 and only lost 1 wicket; including 7 fours and 2 sixes.
  • Ruby & Freya scored 29 for the loss of 4 wickets; including 1 four.
  • Annabel & Hattie scored 31 for the loss of 2 wickets; including 4 fours.
  • Spike & Jackson scored 58 for no loss; including 4 fours and 5 sixes
  • Leo & Harry scored 25 for 1 wicket; including 2 fours

St. Hugh's posted 258 runs for Minster to chase.  (Note in pairs cricket a loss of a wicket costs 5 runs from your total and you start on 100.)

Bowling and wicket keeping in pairs:

  • Henry & Dan restricted Minster's first pair to 29 from their 4 overs for no wicket.
  • Ruby & Freya held their pair to only 17 and they took 3 wickets, the most impressive being a one handed catch by Henry in the deep.
  • Hattie & Annabel conceded 38 runs but took 2 wickets.
  • Spike & Jackson conceded 38 and took a wicket against a strong batting pair.
  • Leo & Harry conceded 31 but took a wicket.

The best bowling figures of the day were by Ruby who conceded 10 runs in her two overs for 2 wickets therefore allowing Minster to score net 0 runs from her 12 balls.

Jackson was awarded man of the match by the opposition.

Match Report

Won 272-251

The Year 6 girls were looking forward to their first ever, playing a mixed gender team from Lincoln Minster. We fielded first and thought we were going to have a tricky day after their opening batsman scored three fours in the first over. However, in the second over, Amelia B-H, took the first wicket in what was also a maiden over. This became the theme for our fielding - Lincoln would score a few runs but we would then claw them back by taking five off their score every time we took a wicket. Over the course of the innings we managed to take nine wickets with almost all the girls managing to get at least one wicket through either accurate bowling, quick fielding to run them out or, in one case, by a fantastic catch by Leah. Special mention should go to Peyia who, as captain, organised the field very well.

After the fielding, the girls new that each pair had to finish with a score of 13 for us to win. Lucy and Amelia set the tone in the first partnership with positive running between the stumps and only conceding one wicket, giving them a score of 19. However it was the second partnership of 36 runs between Peyia and Poppy that proved particularly decisive with many of them coming off a succession of fours from Poppy. We then started to concede a few wickets which let a seed of doubt enter the girls’ minds, quickly expunged when Leah got to the crease and started hitting fours from her very first ball.

Overall, it was a fantastic first performance from the girls and a welcome return to competitive fixtures.
