Under 9A Rounders v Eagle House

Won 11 1/2 – 10

Batter: Yssy
Fielder: Emily
The girls put in a really great performance for their last rounders match of the season. Despite a few silly mistakes in the field during the first innings, we soon ironed these out and made some fantastic tactical decisions. Yssy bowled well and with her quick decision-making managed to stump out a number of players at the 1st post. Whilst Isobel K played an outstanding game at 2nd Deep; she retrieved balls with speed and sent them to second post with accuracy and power. Florence was on form at 2nd post, managing to stump out a number of players. While Tamzi made an outstanding catch to dismiss yet another player. All of these fielding triumphs enabled us to dismiss all players in the first innings on only 16 balls, to give Eagle House a ‘side-out’.
As we went into bat, we were lucky to have Isobel K on form as she connected powerfully and scored numerous rounders. Chloe, Florence and Emily also added to the score sheet with some great rounders, while we saw some lovely half rounders scored too.
Well done girls on a narrow but impressive win of 11 1/2 – 10 rounders.

U9B Rounders vs Eagle House
Won 14.5-10
Batter: Sophie
Fielder: Neve

It was a perfect day for rounders. The sun was shining and the U9Bs had an audience of several parents, a field of cows and a deer. Amesbury won the toss and decided to field first. Eagle House got off to a strong start due to a combination of some good hitting but also though lapses in concentration from the fielders. Their fielding soon became more focused and Eagle House’s flow of rounders started to slow. Some great teamwork between Lily as bowler and Francesca as 2nd post got several girls out. Eagle House finished on a solid score of 5 rounders.

Amesbury went in to bat and started quickly, with 4.5 rounders being scored off the first 7 balls. Some particularly strong striking from Sophie and Maisy ensured that Amesbury first equalled Eagle House’s total and then surpassed it, ending the 1st innings on an impressive 10 rounders.

The 2nd innings was similar to the first with some great fielding stopping Eagle House from getting out of sight. A particular highlight was when Neve took an amazing over the head, tumbling catch. Claudia was great as backstop and prevented 1/2 rounders being scored from backwards hits.

When Amesbury went to bat again, Eagle House started to field with more accuracy and prevented many rounders being scored. Some good hits from Merry allowed the score to tick over and Amesbury finished with 4 1/2 rounders in the second inning meaning Amesbury won the match 14.5-10.

U8C Cricket v Windlesham House
42/2 beat 34/0 by 8 runs

In their final game of the year, the boys were eager to finish on a high and demonstrate the progress they have made this term. We batted very well, playing some great shots and running very well between the wickets. The calling was crucial in this, well done.

At the interval we knew that if we could bowl consistently then we would win. This is exactly what the boys did, bowling superbly, and only giving away 10 wides (compared to the 19 bowled by the opposition) which was ultimately the difference.

Great performance to finish the year, and excellent exhibition of their improving skills, well done.

Amesbury U9B’s boys cricket vs Windlesham House

Score: Windlesham 102-3 (12 overs), Amesbury 101-2 (12 overs)

For the final game of the season Amesbury U9B’s had a trip down to Windlesham and had to endure the heat wave. Windlesham opened the batting and showed little sympathy hitting boundaries with ease. The boys settled their nerves and grew into the match. A few tight overs and some excellent fielding helped reel in Windlesham before a couple of wickets then helped break the momentum. They closed on 102-3 after 12 overs.

Amesbury then went out to bat and showed impressive composure, not chasing runs that weren’t there and punishing any bad balls. The communication was superb and the score board started to tick over. Each pair showed huge progress from their first game of the season. As the final pair came in we required 25 runs from 18 balls. Two tidy overs left use needing 10 to win. Dot ball, four (game on), 2 bye wide, dot, single…dot ball. Gutted. What an end to a great game. A one run loss. Well done to all included for a great season.
