Result: Branston 98-4, St Hugh's 90 all out
The U13’s played Branston school at Woodhall Cricket club in the cup. The boundaries were full size, so hitting fours was always going to be challenging. Branston batted first and got off to a fast start, not helped by us giving away too many extras and not bowling as straight as we are capable of doing. Branston reached 50 on the seventh over, after which time we woke up and bowled and fielded really well. Freddie H made the breakthrough, bowling both openers with his leg spin. Elliot and Penny both bowled tightly and Harry H had the excellent figures of three overs 2 wickets for 3 runs bowling at the end. Branston ended on 98 for 4. When we batted we scored at a decent rate but found it difficult to score boundaries. Russell and Harry H both batted well and Freddie H top scored with 22. With around 40 needed we started losing wickets and Elliot was unfortunately run out just as he was looking dangerous. We lost our final wicket in the last over with 8 runs still needed. A good effort, but with more focus at the beginning I feel we should have won.
