U12s enjoy their game against Kent Girls

U12s v Kent Girls June 2021
Kent Girls Under 11 versus Bapchild Under 12
Bapchild under 12 squad were invited to play the Kent Girls under 11 team at Torry Hill.
The format was pairs cricket but were increased to 7 rather than the usual 4 making it a 28 overs match.
Both teams turned up with 14 players with 3 sitting out at differing periods of the match to re coup and take a drinks break and with everyone bowling 2 overs each.
The Kent side won the toss and elected to bowl first on a dampish track due to the rain on the previous day.    A good test for the Bapchild batters who hadn’t experienced some quality spin bowling and also a genuine pace attack before.
But Bapchild stuck to their task and ended up on a respectable 240 runs after their 28 overs.
In reply the Kent girls batted well grabbing quick singles when possible and hitting the odd boundary.   But Bapchild kept at it taking 14 Kent wickets by the close of the innings.
Champagne moment went to young River Fontanelli who took a brilliant catch in the deep to dismiss the Kent captain. Pick of the Bapchild bowlers was Sophie Hogben taking 4 wickets in her 2 over spell including a hat-trick !!!
A lovely afternoon with the Kent girls victors on the day but a lot of lessons learnt by a young Bapchild team and a great day’s cricket was had by all who played and watched from the sidelines.
