Smallwood Manor: 24                   12: Lichfield Cathedral School

As captain Abi continued her run of losing the toss, so Smallwood continued their run of avoiding a loss.  Smallwood were put into bat and were soon off the mark with a quick succession of ½ rounders from: Abi, Allie, Caitlin, Gaby, Nikki and Poppy F plus a full rounder from Ella P.  Further scores were to follow including 3 full rounders in 3 bats from Rebecca giving Smallwood a lead of 7 rounders at the end of the 1st innings.

The 2nd innings saw the introduction of Emilia to the side and her contribution was clear with some great concentration to support in the field. Some superb quick backstop work from Allie, rapidly sending the ball to Poppy F at 1st post to stump batters out, soon started to deplete Lichfield’s players. An amazing ‘double catch’ by Ella H in the batting square limited Lichfield’s 2nd innings to just 4 rounders giving Smallwood their second victory of the week by 12 rounders with a final score of 24 – 12 rounders.
