Sporting Influence Summer Competition Series-Week Two, 20th June 2018

Posted 25/6/2018


In week two of our competition series our joint Federation cricket team took on Highfield school in pairs cricket format. Each pair faced two overs. Tactics played a big part with many runs being scored but also 5 runs being subtracted for each wicket lost. Having won the toss 'Spollifoot' choose to field first and did a great job fielding very well as a team taking a total of five wickets against a strong Highfield batting line up. Following their ten overs it was the turn of the 'Spollifoot' team to bat. Runs came quickly with the opening pairs but careful defence was also needed against some very accurate bowling. With one over remaining scores were level. Although scoring one run form six balls may seem a relatively easy task this had to be done without loosing a wicket also. Having carefully defended a number of balls the wining run was scored by Laura partnered by Andre. A fantastic game and a great result huge well done to the whole team.
