ROUNDERS SUCCESS

On 21st June the Year 10’s played Duke of Kent at Farlington. In the first innings both teams struggled to get going, however, after a team talk at half-time the girls really ‘upped’ their game. There was some fast paced fielding by both sides with Farlington often getting two players out from one bowl. There was some fantastic batting by both sides with Sophie Kitson hitting the ball past all the deep fielders.
The final score was Farlington 13 ½ Duke of Kent 9. Batter of the game was Sophie Kitson, Fielder was Lucy Hourihan. Well done to all that played!

U13 Rounders vs Christ’s Hospital

On Wednesday 4th May the U13 rounders team played Christ’s Hospital. Farlington opted to field first to assess their opposition. Christ’s Hospital had some excellent batters, sending the ball deep into the Farlinton field. A couple of communication errors led to full rounders being scored where they might have otherwise stopped the batters at 2nd or 3rd post. Farlington scored some good half rounders during their 1st batting innings, however the CH field was tight with very few errors. At this point the score was 6 – 3 1/2 to CH. In the second innings, Christ’s Hospital continued to make good connections with the ball, and despite the Farlington field being tighter this time around, some balls were hit so far out they were difficult to deal with. This meant Farlington had 10 rounders to make up to push past CH, a risky strategy was put in place, however CH continued to be tight in their field and didn’t let the risk taking distract them. The final score was 13-6 to CH.
