U9’s Cricket vs Durlston Court School – 16th May 2018

Match Report

Today we hosted Durlston Court School in a 12 a-side pairs cricket match. Moyles Court lost the toss and were asked to bat first. We started well with a good opening partnership with Ellis and Lucas and other significant contributions from Calob and Will and Bradley and Harrison gave us a score of 256 to defend.

Durlston Court came in to bat with a strong looking batting line up and this proved to be the case with a number of significant partnerships. However there was some excellent bowling from Lucas and Ellis in particular and we took two excellent wickets with brilliant catches in the field from both Ellis and William. Unfortunately we gave away too many wides and no balls which allowed Durlston Court to achieve a score of 285, which gave them victory by 19 runs.

Man-of-the-Match: Ellis
