Bronco’s Chalk up a Win

U12 Broncos v Faversham June 2021
Having lost one and drawn one this season the Bapchild Broncos travelled to Faversham knowing they were playing a team that was unbeaten so far this year.
Ethan Tollervey , “Tails never fails” broncos skipper won the toss and elected to bowl first against a decent batting attack.   Bapchild fielded and bowled superbly well restricting Faversham to 270 runs at the close of their innings.
Steady batting by the first two pairs set up a run chase and it was left to last batting pair Tyler Roberts and Joshua Ingram needing 23 off their 4 overs to win the game for the Broncos.
With no official scorer and the game in the balance Tyler hit two excellent fours and with three balls to go nobody knew who was in front but knew it was close.  Joshua Ingram smacked the last ball but was caught at point last ball of the game and everyone turned to the umpire who was scoring as well to see what the result of the game was.
After a tot up of the last over and wickets lost it was announce that Bapchild had indeed scored 275 runs thus winning by just five runs !!  A bit close for comfort but a great win for the Broncos.  Well done to the whole team and fantastic effort by you all
The U12 Bees could not repeat their excellent win against Minster the previous week in the double header against Faversham coming up 50 runs short but still a great effort
