Match reports - Girls' Cricket

Our U8 girls played their first ever cricket match for the school and our U11s their first match of the season.

U8 v Hilden Oaks: On Thursday our U8s played their first ever cricket match for Russell House. It was a beautiful sunny day and the girls were so excited to play. They have been working hard on their fielding and, in the match, Scarlett and Emelia took a wicket each. We gave away a few too many runs from bowling wides, but overall we scored more runs off the bat and took more wickets, so a promising start to the season!

U11 v Sevenoaks Prep: On Wednesday, our U11s played their first match of the season against Sevenoaks Prep. We all did really well and hit some excellent shots over the boundary to get us four points each time. Lucy caught a player out and Abi took a brilliant wicket. The final score was incredibly close with 238 to Sevenoaks Prep and 233 to Russell House. Congratulations to Anna, who was chosen as player of the match! Report by Abi
