A Win for a New Team!Back
Last week, Hertswood put forward its first ever Year 7 team in Mixed Rounders, for a friendly against Yavneh College.
In the first innings we didn't meet our usual high standards, and unfortunately only scored three rounders, allowing Yavneh to take the lead. We made up for it in our second fielding innings, with a great showing from Liv and Lowena both catching and stumping players out within the same ball!
We were last to bat, needing five and a half rounders to win. Taking the opportunity to show his skill, Nick scored two fantastic rounders, hitting the ball deep into the field both times. Full rounders were also achieved by Daisy, Jack, Remel, Amir and Sophie, bringing the match to a final score of 11-8 to Hertswood!
Congratulations to the team, and our thanks to Yavneh's friendly (and skilled) students for joining us for this great event.
