Sports Report - Year 8 Rounders fixture
Tonight was the chance of our year 8 rounders team to play their next round of matches. King Alfred's and Blake did not attend, so Chilton were up against Haygrove and BCA.
The first match was against Haygrove, and as always Chilton chose to bat first. Jodi's hitting was incredible, and she managed to score 2 and a half rounds for the team. The girls worked really hard and Kaiti, Morgan and Phoebe all scored half rounders, leaving Chilton finishing their innings with 5 rounders scored. It was excellent that the girls managed to score so highly against Haygrove who are renowned for their tight fielding. Haygrove went up to bat and Summer had some great variety in her bowling, making it difficult for the batters. Lexie and Jodi both caught batters out, and Jess was close on several occasions. Heloise did a fantastic job on second post, and overall Haygrove only managed to score 3 rounders.
Final score: Chilton: 5, Haygrove : 3
Next was BCA, and after a bit of a break, Chilton has lost their batting strength from the previous game. The BCA bowler had a very varied style which made it difficult to bat. The whole team worked hard to secure several half rounders, as well as scoring a half rounder from no balls. Chilton's innings was over with a total of 3 and a half. This was a small target which BCA were determined to match. Chilton were tight in the field but the pressure was getting to them, with several fumbles. On ball 17 of 20, BCA needed 1 rounder to win. Chilton managed to stop the scores and BCA scored a total of 3.
Final score: Chilton 3 and a half BCA:3
