The latest Bethany School sports news as summer term fixtures continued this week, including a host of cricket matches in the glorious warm weather......
Tuesday 21st June
The U14 Girls Cricket team played Claremont School and were put into bat after losing the toss. Bethany set about building on their performance from last week and scoring runs in every over. All pairs contributed with improved communication and running between the wickets, with pick of the pairs being Lily Faulkner and Emma Kuhepa, and Grace Whitaker and Emily Fraser. A final innings score of 259 was a challenging total and the best overall score so far this season. Claremont also batted with a quick scoring rate from the start, but improved fielding and bowling from the Bethany team kept the rate below their target. During the final overs an excellent catch and two wickets in a row from Lily Faulkner put the pressure on Claremont, and with one ball left, Bethany was leading by two runs. A well-placed shot off the last ball by the Claremont player found the boundary and a finishing score of 261 claimed the win. A very close game and positive performance from Bethany as they continue to make progress week on week.
