After losing the toss, Abbots Hall asked us to bat first. Harrison and Alex opened the batting and faced some fast, precise bowling. We had some good batters including: Harrison, Scott, Max and Jayden just to name a few. After the first innings we were down to 99 runs, losing 6 wickets mostly to smart catches in the field.
As the second innings started Abbots Hall smashed out: lots of fours and single runs. Our fielding was tight (we stopped four boundaries), but unfortunately not tight enough.
As we gathered around to hear the scores there was tension in the air, but Abbots Hall comfortably won the match with one hundred and sixty-six runs. We wish them good luck in the Schools’ Partnership finals next week. Well played Ixworth, we did our best and we will come back stronger next game.
