JOG were host to both Clarendon and our St A’s girls and boys as a rare chance for some cricket game time was in store for 8 of our players!
St A’s first match was against a strong Clarendon side, James Drake opened the bowling with some great line and length on the spinners bowls. Harry Stamp and Luke Roddy kept this good start going with Clarendon scoring 37 of their 8 overs leaving St A’s 38 to clinch victory.
Annabel Stevens started the run chase of with some great batting, alongside some very quick runs between the pairing of Ringnyu Bongmba and Luke Roddy, however the side just fell short scoring 31 runs.
The second match was against a John of Gaunt who had lost their first game against Clarendon, so second place rode on this last match, along with some Trowbridge bragging rights.
St Augustine’s batted first with some yet again excellent cricket being played by Annabel Stevens. James Drake joined the party hitting a quick fire 15 to add some score to the sides total. Wiktoria Piasecka finished of the batting score to finish St A’s batting score at 41 – An amazing total.
Some good fielding from Tendo Byekwaso put St Augustine’s into a good start, along with some great balling from Harry Stamp once again. St A’s kept this standard of play up restricting the John of Gaunt team to 25 runs, leading to an amazing 16 run victory – Huge well done!
