Last night the year 8 rounders team went to Myton for a tournament. The first match against Campion started off with us fielding, we made some silly mistakes and Campion managed to get 7 1/2 rounders although Poppy Lummis and Sarah Costa worked hard to chase down the ball and get it to 4th base. Southam knew they had to work hard to win the match. After some amazing hits form Sarah Costa, Erin Jones and Katy Black and risk taking from Alex Lyle, Olivia Constable, Charlotte Wain and Ellie Cumberbatch, Southam won with 9 rounders! Next we played Myton, a close game but in the end we managed to win 3 1/2 to 3 rounders thanks to consistent bowling from Morgan Usher! Stepping up to play Aylesford we were feeling confident from the last two matches. After some amazing catches and work between Lucy Tidmas at back stop and Niamh Purnell on first base we managed to get 7 out of 9 of their players out! The final score 5 1/2 to 4 /12 rounders to Southam! Our last game against Kingsley was going to be tough but we fought hard and with some committed runs and team effort we managed to maintain a draw.
Southam managed to come joint first with Kingsley! An exciting tournament even in the rain, with some great team work from the girls! What a way to end the year.
Well done to all,
