District Rounders 2022
The year 6 rounders team went to Old Brentwood’s Rugby Club for the District rounders competition last Tuesday.
We made a strong start v St Peter’s, with the opposition setting a high score of 7 ˝ which we chased down and scored 9 ˝ in response. In our second game we came up against a strong St Mary’s team. Batting first we scored 6 ˝ as they were a strong fielding team, however we kept them to a low score in return, nearly winning, however they managed to put us under pressure in the field and they scored a rounder off their final ball to draw with us 6 ˝ all. Another strong batting and fielding performance saw us win 8 – 5 v St Joseph’s and in our final group stage match we piled on the rounders with some big hits and clever running to overcome Larchwood 10 – 2 ˝ . We drew on points overall with St Mary’s in the group stages, however due to a 1 ˝ rounder overall difference, we just missed out on the gold medal match, going through to the Bronze match v Bentley. All contributed in the match, with intelligent fielding and strong batting, winning the Bronze with a 13 – 6 victory.
Well done to all the boys and girls on their strong team performance.
