Match Report
Roedean School Girls-U14B vs  Hurstpierpoint College Girls-U14C
On: Monday, 29 Apr 2024
Venue: Away

The U14B team played their first game of hardball cricket at Roedean and it became an absolute thriller. Hurst batted first and scored 269, largely due to some excellent running between the wickets and some lusty boundary hitting. Roedean bowled accurately and fielded ok, though in future games will benefit from getting closer to the batters to prevent singles.

In reply Roedean accumulated runs gradually, and with one over to go needed seven to win. An excellent final over from Hurst restricted Roedean to just three, meaning they fell an agonising three runs short.
