Y10 County Cricket Champions!

The U15 cricket team are county champions following a pulsating victory against Hereford Cathedral School. JMHS won the toss and elected to bat and this looked like a great decision as we amassed 105 runs for the first wicket. Dom (41) and Lucas (62) getting the team off to a great start. Others chipped in with some useful quick runs and we closed our innings on 157.

We started the second innings strongly, taking a quick wicket, but thenĀ  Cathedral School dug deep and got a strong foothold in the game and started picking off the runs. With the score on 123/1 and 7 overs remaining, there looked like there would only be one winner. However, it was then the turn of JMHS to dig deep. A few tight overs, followed by some key wickets (Jack with 2, Lucas with 3) saw Cathedral School needing 11 off the last over and then 4 off the last ball. The crowd fell silent, time seemed to stop. Billy came bounding in and released a fierce leg cutter. The batsman swiped. The edge was taken. Thud! Ball into Harry’s chest. Slap! Gloved hand securely clasps the ball. Victory!

The game was played in the perfect spirit; competitive but respectful. Well done to both teams.
