Wisbech Grammar School Girls U14XI played the U15XI in a close run 15 over game in preparation for Monday's fixture against Leicester Grammar.
The U14s managed a respectable 65 runs off 15 overs, most notable performance in bat was from Kasia who managed to stay in for the majority of the innings steadily adding to the runs and leading the charge for some quick singles. In the field the UI15s were more organised than they have been and the bowling attack was very competitive, with Annie, Hannah, Lucy and Arina all impressing. Tilly helped keep the run total down in the latter stages with two steady overs. Once in Bat, the U15s looked dangerous, especially with the hitting power of Eliza and Izzy. The batting was opened well by Georgie and Lucy, who manged to tick the score board over nicely with some quick singles. The U15s marched steadily towards their target, despite the best efforts of Ellie who led from the front as captain, bowling two excellent overs. In the end they reached the target in the 12th over. A really enjoyable game and a lot of fun for both teams, the atmosphere was upbeat and the weather held!
Wisbech Grammar School Boys Cricket vs King’s School Ely
Wisbech Grammar School 1st X1 vs King’s School Ely
King's Ely won the toss and elected to bat on a fine day at WGS.
King's Ely made a steady start, putting on 20 runs for the first wicket, with Saunders being bowled by Frazer Brown for 7 runs. All the WGS bowlers were disciplined, but the stand out performance was by leg spinner Charles Kerman-Staley, who ripped through the middle order, taking 3 wickets for 14 runs off 3 overs. King's Ely finished on 137 for 6 off 20 overs.
The fielding was of a good standard and Bradley Hutler had a fine day behind the stumps, including a good catch, standing up to the medium pace of Frazer Brown.
In reply, WGS hit the winning runs in the 18th over with Oliver Mann scoring an excellent 67 not out, being well supported by Alex Clabon (14) and Joe Mayes (15 not out).
Thank you to all the parents and staff for supporting the 1st XI.
Wisbech Grammar School Boys U14 vs Kings Ely
Wisbech won the toss and chose to bowl first. The Wisbech bowling attack caused the Ely batsmen problems and this was backed up by excellent fielding. They struggled to score fluently and with 3 wickets from Shravan and 4 by William Ely were bowled out for 80.
In reply Wisbech batted strongly with Josh leading the way on 40 not out to see us home with 6 overs to spare
