On Thursday 26th May our 3 and 4 team travelled to Royal Russell to take part in a friendly Kwik Cricket match. Having played them at home only a few weeks ago the children were geared up and excited for another opportunity, this time playing a team of their age.
West Lodge bowled first and showed a great improvement with their on target bowls, rarely giving away any wide balls or no balls. The team communicated well with each other which helped their fielding. Royal Russell showed excellent batting skills here scoring mainly 2 runs or 4 runs.
West Lodge then had their turn of batting. The boys were all able to make some hits, although Louie and Stacey managed to hit the ball far and gain us 4 runs. Royal Russell bowled us quite a few wides, and so Mr McCabe spoke to the children about using the opportunity to hit the ball back if it is wide.
Unfortunately, Royal Russell were the stronger team and won the game 150 to our 135 runs. Both teams showed a great attitude to the game and a great improvement on communication.
Thank you to Mr McCabe for umpiring and to Miss Ayling for scoring.
