Wickets Win it for Woodhey
Woodhey take the double on day 4
Day 4 saw the competition move to Oldham Sports Centre. The U13s competition saw group stages followed by Semi finals and finals. Winners of group 1 St Cuthbert’s met runners up of group 2, Shuttleworth College. With St Cuthbert’s scoring 80 , a tough task was ahead of Shuttleworth. However they gave it a good go and reached 73 off their 8 overs. The second semi final saw Woodhey take on Siddal Moor High. Woodhey were the stronger side from the word go with their top 3 batters all reaching 15 in quick time. 85, the total set and Siddal Moor were able to get near it with some excellent bowling from Isobel Jemmott and Olivia. Woodhey met St Cuthbert’s in the final, a close run game right from the start. Woodhey batted first setting just 45 to win, Olivia starred again with the bat. Some tight bowling and restricting the wides meant runs were hard to come by. Unfortunately as wickets fell regularly St Cithberts didn’t get going however they did manage to reach 39, a valiant effort against a strong side.
Onto the U15s competition where it was a straight round robin. Woodhey set off as they finished in the morning however losing their final game of the afternoon to Royton and Crompton to make it 2 wins from 3 also meant we had a tie for the team to go through. This count back went on wickets taken and Woodhey managed to take 22 and Royton and Crompton 17. Woodhey took 7 wickets in the game vs. Royton and Crompton, 5 of which came in the 7th over when Isobel Jemmott (year 7) took a hat trick.
Some excellent talent on show all day and some great learning done by all participants.
We would like to thank Oldham Sports Centre for their hospitality during the day and also students, teachers and supporters for taking part in this competition.
