U13 Lady Taverners Cricket report
Yorkshire Indoor Cricket Centre, Headingley.
WGHS were put into a group to play St. Aidans, Meadowhead & South Hunsley Schools. The first match was against South Hunsley on the “Lords Pitch”. Captain Molly Robinson led the team out, and after losing the toss, South Hunsley elected to bat first. A strong bowling and fielding performance limited the South Hunsley team to 71 runs. WGHS had a fantastic batting performance securing their first win of the day with 114 runs.
The next game, against Meadowhead saw quite a few of the girls retire in their innings and get another comfortable batting score of 122, with Meadowhead only finding 92 in reply.
The final group game was against St Aidans, which WGHS won again, sending them into the semifinals unbeaten!
The semifinal was against the runners up in the other group, MacMillan. The girls demonstrated their skills well and won the match by 58 runs. In the final, they met the other West Yorkshire finalists, Holmfirth. The two sides had met previously in the West Yorkshire final, where WGHS had held on to take the victory. With a place in the North finals to play for, it was a tense match. The girls took everything in their stride and pulled off a comprehensive 30 run victory to secure their place as representatives of Yorkshire in April at the Northern round of the competition at Bolton Arena. Here they will face teams from Lancashire, Northumberland, Derbyshire, Cumbria & North Wales.
We wish them the best of luck in the next round!
