Match Report
Chafyn Grove Preparatory School Mixed-U11A vs  Salisbury Cathedral School
On: Wednesday, 09 Jun 2021
Venue: Away

Cricket is played in two halves (batting &bowling). The Colts did very well in their first half, scoring 157-8 with the whole team having a bat. Will S’s 32* and Gabriel’s 29* were the top scores today. After a good tea - the second half however went spectacularly wrong! We handed the opposition a huge collection of wides, no-balls, byes, overthrows and what is now our customary penalty runs too! The boys were just not quite with it and the harder they tried the worse it got! Take absolutely nothing away from Salisbury Cathedral Colts – they batted beautifully and scored a well deserved 129-8 and were pushing us all the way – their opening stand was very impressive and it took the Colts 14 overs to make their first breakthrough thanks to Rupert. Unfortunately, SCS couldn’t maintain their momentum and started to lose wickets regularly from then on and eventually fell 28 short at the close. Sam Head was the pick of the bowlers today with 2-13 (plus a couple of wides too!)
