St Hugh’s hit the road again for a great match against Ranby. A team who had played as much as we have this term so far, it was a good experience for the team to have a game against tough opposition. Strong bowling and sharp fielding meant that the Ranby batters were kept under control and the batting by St Hugh’s resulted in some excellent stroke play, particularly from James and Rory S, but also from Rory P and Keagan who regularly passed the boundary with their shots. In the end the result was a win for St Hugh’s by 10 runs, thanks to a very strong last pair (Rory and James) who added a number of 4s and 6s to the team total, meaning that they ended victorious. Well done to all involved.
Result: 262 - 257 Win
On a lovely sunny afternoon the C team travelled to Ranby where they would face a very competitive match up. St Hugh’s won the toss and decided to bat first. The partnership of Noah and Holden were up first. The game started slightly slowly for St Hugh’s with the first pair picking up one boundary and one single. The first pair ended up scoring 13 runs across their two overs thanks to some no balls and wides from Ranby. Next up was Penelope and Coco, the girls were unable to find their rhythm through lots of wide balls and not running between the stumps. The pair managed to add on 14 runs to the total which continued the steady start from St Hugh’s. The 3rd pair of Agatha and Rosie had similar overs to the girls before them adding on 10 runs to the total. The fourth pair of Layla and Edmund started off strong with Layla hitting a well placed shot scoring 4 runs off of their first ball. We then began to run between the stumps and score some singles which was helping our total creep up to 251 after the 4th pair. Due to Ranby having 10 pairs Noah and Holden were given the opportunity to bat again. We finally began to find our form by running between the stumps and scoring runs. With a mixture of these skills we managed to accumulate a total of 262 runs. It was now St Hugh’s turn to bowl. Penelope and Coco opened the bowling with Coco only giving away two runs in her over which was very impressive. This strong start was then followed up by Penelope only losing 4 runs in her over. This strong start from the girls put us in a great position for the 2nd pair of Agatha and Rosie to build on. Despite brilliant bowling from the pair they faced some storing batters who were able to score a multitude of runs. Layla then delivered the over of the game by only losing 1 run which was very impressive and helped the team massively. A late charge from Ranby in their final 5 overs made the game incredibly tight, however some excellent fielding from the team prevented Ranby from scoring the vital runs. This meant that St Hugh’s narrowly won by 5 runs with a score of 262 - 257. Well done to all involved in a great performance.
