Girls' Cricket - U13 Lady Taverners Tournament
Congratulations to Holmwood U13 girls 1 st VIII for winning Wednesday’s first round tournament and progressing to the next stage in the competition which will probably take place on March 21st (details to follow).
The girls lost only two wickets total in their three games, and took 15. All of our bowlers were excellent (Hollie, Maisie, Phoebe, Kaela and Ilayda), but Ilayda’s (Y7) outstanding bowling took the rest of the team (Y8) by surprise with three wickets in five balls in the final game. Ilayda has a unique and elegant style which we all admired.
Phoebe and Kaela captained the team, which also featured Hebe, Freya and Lucy B, to victory and everyone played a vital role. The girls batted and fielded with excellent concentration throughout their games and are very excited about the next tournament.
Stanway: 45 for 5 wickets, Holmwood House: 70 for 1 wicket
Tendring Tech: 33 for 5 wickets, Holmwood House: 69 for 1 wicket
Holmwood House: 71 for no wickets, Colchester CH: 31 for 5 wickets
