A roundup of the games played this week.
Mixed U10A v Spring Grove: Russell House lost the toss and were asked to bat. Starting solidly with some big hitting from Dexter, we scored 269 runs. In reply, Spring Grove started slowly with a maiden from Dexter. He has not conceded a run in any match this season! At the end of the innings with the run rate climbing, Lexi and Connor bowled particularly well in restricting the opposition to 243. A win to Russell House by 26 runs. Dexter was man of the match for his all round performance (he took a catch too) with Ella M taking a catch too. We all did very well, so well done to everyone who played in the cricket match. Ella M
Mixed U10B v Spring Grove: Spring Grove scored a total of 254 runs with Arthur, Oliver and Amber all taking a wicket each whilst William F took a hat-trick. In reply, Russell House scored 263 runs with some great batting including sixes from both William F and Oliver. It was a great team effort from all the Russell House pupils. In the end we won by 9 runs and we all enjoyed a lovely match tea. Oliver
Mixed U10C v Spring Grove:
Russell House opened the batting with only conceding one wicket. We ended the innings having scored 267 runs. It was Spring Grove's turn to bat, which they did very well. A player in the other team hit one six and two fours, so very well done to him. Russell House needed a wicket off the last ball to win but Spring Grove prevailed, winning by 3 runs. Man of the match was Charlie whilst William S bowled well, conceding only one wide. Well done Spring Grove and I hope to see you in the football season next year. Charlie

Boys' U9 v Rose Hill: Russell House won by three runs. Rose Hill scored 313 and Russell House scored a total of 316, with Sammy hitting the winning runs.
