​U13 B” Boys cricket v Sutton Valence School

​​​​​​​The U13 B” boys cricket team played Sutton Valence School on Wednesday 5th June in an entertaining match.

A number of players were making their cricket debut for the School and performed well with a positive learning curve very evident as the match developed.

The match was lost by 12 runs overall, but notable performances with the bat came from Angus Dunn and Ethan Smith, while pick of the bowlers was Josh Malin, Sam Denny and Captain Noah Lyndon-Stanford.

U15 Boys’ cricket v Beechwood School

On Thursday 6th June, Bethany U15s played Beechwood School at home. Bethany won the toss and elected to bowl first. Beechwood got off to a great start scoring 34 off the first 3 overs.

However, a brilliant spell of bowling from Harry Morgan (2 wickets) and Tireni Dada (4 wickets) enabled Bethany to gain control of the game again a bowled them out for 50.

Bethany went out to bat high in confidence from their bowling performance, but lost 3 quick wickets because of some good Beechwood bowling. Jake Lancaster (15*) and Connor Kennison-Cook (11) batted very well to finish the game in style with 7 overs remaining.

U13A Girls Cricket v U13 Girls Radnor House

On Wednesday, 5th June, with a shaky start to the innings we soon settled into our rhythm and clocked up singles to add to the growing tally.

Sports Scholar Olivia Reeves batted particularly well, finding the gaps in the field and communicating well with her partner Georgie Borton.

We made an excellent start to our fielding innings with Captain Bea Westbrook taking two wickets in the first over and Sports Scholar Elsa Taylor bowling consistently well limiting Radnor House runs. Ruby Russell kept the pressure on as she bowled a wicket followed by Olivia Reeves taking a fantastic one-handed catch. Frances Lye then bowled an outstanding over with no runs scored.

The girls should be very proud of their performance and we look forwards to their hard ball game next Monday.

Final Score: Bethany won 245 runs to 207

U13B Girls Cricket v U13 Girls Radnor House

Our U13 B team competed against Radnor House this week and had a very enjoyable afternoon of cricket. Bethany fielded first and put Radnor house under pressure, only giving away one 4. Two wickets were also taken which slowed down the opposition’s score line dramatically. At half time Bethany were chasing 55 runs. There was some consistently good batting from Bethany, particularly from Rebecca Martin and Gywn Rabbetts, and Anna Kiddell and Grace Dodge. However, with no 6’s or 4’s converted, 55 proved too much to catch.

Final score Radnor House 255 Bethany 225.

U15 Girls Rounders v U15 Girls Radnor House

Radnor House visited us today to compete in U15 rounders. Bethany batted first and were taken by surprise by the efficient fielding of the opposition.

Radnor House had good placement on the field and caught out 4 of our players in quick succession. This led to Bethany being all out for 2 rounders at the end of the first innings. Bethany knew they had a lot to do and fielded very well in return, taking 6 of their players out and only conceding 6 ½ rounders.

In the second innings, due to some fantastic balls by Sophie Ovenden, Bethany were able to score 5 ½ rounders, however this did not leave a big enough gap for Radnor House and they took the game comfortably 16 ½ – 7 ½. Some tough lessons for Bethany to take away for our match next week against Gad’s Hill.
