Result: St Hugh's 327, LMS 123
A fabulous afternoon’s cricket from both teams. Some of the players were up against teammates from their clubs and it was great to see a competitive streak emerging from them. A much improved performance from the A team this week compared to last when the Byes were the top scorer. Tight bowling and smart batting, particularly considering the depth of the offside boundary, meant that St Hugh’s dominated the batting and also kept scoring by the opposition right down. Rory S as captain led by example, batting and bowling last to bring the team in as winners and he was supported with the bat by Edward B who scored a Stokes-like series of boundaries. Keagan, Sam H and James F also helped the scoreboard and George, India and Rory B bowled and fielded really well. A super team performance, well done all.
Result: St Hugh’s 271, LMS 203
On a lovely sunny afternoon we had a home fixture against LMS. We won the toss and selected to bat first. Kaz and Ellis scored 22 runs. Frankie and Tabitha clocked up 28 runs with some good calls. Charlotte and Josh scored 12 and a run out. Seb and Edward scored 19, a very surprised LMS pupil took a great catch from a good hit by Seb.
Some excellent, accurate bowling saw Kazuo take a wicket and Josh two in quick succession.
Super progress from this team. Kazuo was selected as captain in his last game for St Hugh’s and was nominated by the opposition as Player of the Match for his batting and fielding.
Result: St Hugh's 285, LMS 267
In lovely cricketing weather the C team played some excellent cricket. The match began with St Hugh’s bowling. The first 3 overs were bowled by Lulu and Layla. Both girls started off brilliantly only giving away 8 runs in their first two overs. Layla then bowled her 3rd over the pair and in fantastic fashion bowled two almost identical wickets in a row with them both being caught by Holden who was doing some excellent fielding. The next LMS pairing saw a familiar face in Noah G who had volunteered to make the numbers even for both teams. Noah batted very well and scored lots of runs for LMS despite brilliant bowling from Coco and Rosie. The final two pairs bowled and unfortunately no more wickets were taken however St Hughs held their opposition to a score of only 267. It was then St Hughs turn to bat, a slightly slow start from St Hughs meant they lost a wicket on the 3rd ball of the first over but managed to claw back some runs in the first 3 overs and finished on 219. It was then Noah’s turn to bowl against his fellow peers of Coco and Rosie. The two girls were able to bat well and add a handful of runs to the score, however on the last bowl of their final over Noah boweld a wonderful ball which directly hit the wickets. Penelope and Agatha then came into bat and batted well, scoring helpful runs which added onto the score ending on 248. It was Holden and Edmunds turn as the last pair to attempt to score enough runs to win the game. This is exactly what they managed to do however, scoring multiple runs and boundaries. The highlight being Holden scoring 3 boundaries in a row off the last 3 balls. This rounded off a fantastic afternoon of cricket where St Hugh’s won by scoring 285 compared to LMS’s 267. Well done to all the players on a fantastic performance.
On Monday afternoon we had a fixture against LMS. We decided to bowl first. As a team they all bowled quite well with Arabella, Tara, April and Thomas getting wickets. The team's fielding was very responsive and they had good communication between them. As a team the batting was quite static between the wickets and some opportunities for runs were missed however, Tallulah batted a 4 and a great partnership between Thomas and April gave us the win. As a whole the team have made progress in all areas and are looking forward to their next match.
