Sports Report - Year 9/10 Boys Cricket
The Year 9/10 boys team entertained Blake last evening and came away with a 12 run win in an entertaining game. Having won the toss and decided to bat K Lewis and M Hucker batted sensibly against good bowling on a pitch offering good bounce. The pair put on 38 before M Hucker was well caught, this brought C Sturgess to the wicket and he batted sensibly until K Lewis fell to a good delivery. L Birch and C Sturgess continued to bat well pushing singles until the latter was run out by a direct hit throw. Z Keirle and L Birch batted out the remaining overs reaching a grand total of 76 from their 15 overs.
In the field Chilton were very keen and positioned themselves well protecting boundaries and stopping singles. M Hucker took the first wicket bowling Holman for 1. A partnership between Witkins and Jackson took Blake to 46 in the 10th over as K Lewis, M Hucker, L Birch, Z Keirle and J Neal all bowled accurately. J Neal made the important breakthrough having Witkins superbly caught by Sturgess at mid-wicket. Z Kearle bowled an amazing last over taking 2 wickets as M Hucker and C Sturgess took good catches in the outfield. K Lewis and M Hucker finished off the innings well bowling tight lines as Blake finished on 64 for 4.
In a good team performance M Hucker and K Lewis showed good discipline with the bat however man of the match went to J Neal for an excellent 3 over bowling spell.
