The UVHS I14’s found themselves up against Dallam School in Round 2 of the County Cricket Knockout Competition. We found ourselves several players short due to a variety of commitments on the day, but thanks must go to Jake, Lewis, Jack & Gavin for stepping in to make sure we had enough people to play. Batting first UVHS scored a healthy 81 runs for the loss of the 3 wickets from our allotted 12 overs. Some good batting by Samson (45 ret) & Oscar (11) gave the UVHS team a respectable total. Missing 3 key bowlers did not make our task easy but credit must go to the whole team to stem Dallam’s batting after they got off to a flyer. Wickets from Joe (2/7 off 3), Samson (2/5 off 3) and Jack (1/8 off 2), along with some good fielding halted the Dallam team and after the final ball was bowled, Dallam fell 19 runs short on 62 runs for 6 wickets off their 12 overs.
Well done all, a great team effort.
