Y8/9 Cricket Match vs Ballard School

Match Report

Moyles Court lost the toss and were made to field first. The bowling this week was much better and we were able to reduce the extras given away. Jacob was the pick of the bowlers with good line and length, although the wickets were spread throughout the team this week. With another good show in the field we were able to restrict Ballard to a final score of 91.

When we went into bat after tea we unfortunately lost our best batsman Tom early on when he was caught behind for 4. However Jacob and Connor were able to bring us back into contention both scoring valuable runs. Unfortunately though, Ballard bowled equally well and we were unable to chase down the Ballard total, falling 15 runs short scoring a total of 77 for the loss of 3 wickets.

Men of the Match: Jacob and Jake
