Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Boys-U11A vs  Hilden Grange School
On: Tuesday, 14 May 2019
Venue: at Home

The Colts played Hilden Grange in the second round of the Summer Cup. Ed M bowled a breathtaking spell, finishing with figures of 6 for 10 in four overs. Despite being in trouble early on, the middle order of Hilden Grange 'dug in' and managed to build a few useful partnerships. The Saint Ronan's fielding was below par, with a few catches dropped and unnecessary overthrows which allowed the momentum to shift in favor of the guests. Having said that, chasing 98 was by no means an impossible task but it could have been a much smaller target.

Ed M and Ned T got us off to a brisk start with a flurry of boundaries. Hilden Grange countered by bowling Ned and, when Orlando S clipped a ball off his hips to be superbly caught at square leg, the momentum had shifted once again. Ed continued to bat responsibly (top scoring with 32) but lacked support and we could not put any meaningful middle order partnerships together. We got pretty close to the target but in the end fell 6 runs short. Man of the Match: Ed M.
