U9's Victory against Reigate!!!
Into the Semi Finals!!!
So the sun was shining and the ground was looking great. Reigate won the toss and elected to bat first so we were fielding. Some great bowling by Stanley, Henry and Thomas (the team captain) who all took wickets and Reigate ended up after a good innings on 292.
Then after some fine home make cake at the break (thank you bakers!) it was Outwood’s turn to bat and enter the first pair, Stanley and Dylan. Before we knew it they had scored 33 between them but we still had to work hard to beat Reigate safely. The rest of the team took their turn on the crease and it was looking yet again tight. Finally it was down the the last pair Henry and Sebastian to take us to glory and into the Semi Finals. With some lovely shots and steady play, the last few balls were just formalities and we finished on 310!
We made it to our first Semi Finals!
Well done lads, a great result all round!!!!
Overall Man of the Match gets awarded to Dylan Manerowski for great bowling and batting and therefore will be captain for the next match.
