The Under 8s played only their second game of the season at Hurst on Wednesday and continued their great form to end the season undefeated, with a 100% winning record. With all boys bowling well and limiting Hurst to only 50 runs, minus 10 runs for taking 2 wickets in the process, we had a target of 41 runs from 10 overs.
Extras always play a big part in U8 cricket but a couple of boundaries and some excellent calling and running showed that we are also capable of creating our own runs. We lost 3 wickets along the way; however a lovely lobbed shot towards the boundary allowed our final pair to run a 3 and claim the victory by 2 runs from the last ball of the game!
It was a very exciting game with some brilliant performances. Well done boys; a short but well executed season.
