Haylands, St Blasius and Nine Acres Triangular Qualifying Round Girls Cricket Competition

12th May 2017
On a wet and grey evening the Haylands girls played in their qualifying round of the girls cricket competition. They met St Blasius in the first game and with some confident hitting and great running between the wickets amassed a total of 263 for the loss of only one wicket. The St Blasius team fought hard but Haylands bowling and fielding was excellent to keep the score to 234-6 and comfortable win.

The St Blasius v Nine Acres game ended in a win for Nine Acres meaning the final game effectively became a knock-out match. Haylands won the toss and chose to field first. With some really straight bowling and super catching from both Alana White and Amelia McCarthy the home team restricted Nine Acres to 233-4. In reply Haylands started slowly, under pressure from some brilliant bowling and fielding from the Newport school. With overs running out and the scores getting close Sienna and Maddie were left needing 6 runs from the final 6 balls of the game.  They unfortunately only managed 3 leaving the final score 231-4 and an agonising 2 runs short of qualifying for the next round.

TEAM: Zoe, Sienna, Katelyn, Maddie, Amelia D, Amelia Mc, Alana, Charlotte.
