Wow what an amazing achievement for our Under 13 girls who beat New Hall and Colchester High School for girls to qualify for Essex Finals alongside the Under 15 girls. We chased down 100 runs and 76 runs to win both matches in the final over. Against New Hall we needed 6 to win off last ball and by putting pressure on the fielding side we scored 7 to claim victory. As one of the top cricketing schools in Essex – this was a major achievement.
Against CHSFG we needed 4 to win off last over with 1 wicket left against a really fast county bowler and we got the runs with 1 ball to spare. Mr Baker’s heart was beating very fast!
The game management from the girls was unreal – they stayed calm under massive pressure.
We now look forward to the county finals for both Under 13 and Under 15 girls’ teams. This is second year running which is a massive achievement when you look at the type of schools we are beating – private, grammar and all girls schools.
Well done to the team and their Coach Mr Baker
