Yr 7 Match reports- 5 star Henry; a win and a loss


Year 7 Knocked Out Of Cup By Liverpool

St Mary’s set a decent total but couldn’t defend it and crashed out of the cup against Liverpool College on Saturday.

St Mary’s batted first with Daniel McCann and Matthew Travers. Batting was difficult on a slow and damp pitch. Matthew was out first with the score on 4, bringing Cameron Lawrenson to the crease. Daniel and Cameron formed a good partnership, Cameron doing most of the scoring until he retired on 25. Daniel was caught on 4. Harry Woods scored 15 with Adam Purcell on 1 not out to give St Mary’s a total of 73 for the loss of 4 wickets.

Matthew Travers and Harry Woods opened the bowling for St Mary’s. Matthew took the only wicket for St Mary’s in his third over, caught by Jack Mulholland. Fielding was difficult in the windy conditions and Liverpool did some good running between the wickets to keep adding to their score with quick singles.

Harry Woods and Cameron Lawrenson bowled maidens but Liverpool scored steadily and reached their target with 3 overs to spare.

Year 7 Bounce Back Against Cowley

Five star Owen Henry demolished Cowley after St Mary’s batsmen posted their best total so far.

St Mary’s Y7 cricket team took on Cowley at Blundell Park on Tuesday and were keen to improve on Saturday’s disappointing loss to Liverpool College.

A batting reshuffle saw Cameron Lawrenson and Adam Purcell open the batting. Cowley had a very good bowler in McNicholas and he took the first wicket, Adam caught and bowled with the score on 2. Harry Woods was next to the crease and he and Cameron took the score to 22 before Harry was stumped. Daniel McCann came in at number 4 and he and Cameron had a useful partnership, taking the score to 58 before Cameron was caught on 31 off the bowling of Bailey. Daniel retired on 30 not out. Cameron Collins scored 6, Matthew Travers 15 and Alex Foy 2 to set Cowley a target of 103.

With the rain falling steadily St Mary’s opened their bowling attack with Matthew Travers and Harry Woods. Harry struck in the second over and again in the fourth to leave Cowley on just 9, but McNicholas and Wainwright formed a useful partnership for the visitors and took them to 43 before Wainwright fell to Jack Mulholland, caught by Cameron Collins.

Cowley still had a chance but Owen Henry bowled a superb spell, taking 5 wickets in just 3 overs. McNicholas was caught by Alex Foy with Matthew Travers taking 2 catches and Cameron Collins another. Cowley finished on 71, giving St Mary’s the win by 31 runs.
