Cricket against Dean
Dean school is bowled over by Paddle’s Victory – by Scarlett Chappell
On the afternoon of Thursday 22nd June, 10 Paddle pupils went by minibus to Dean school to play a cricket match. Four players were from Y6 – Rama, Elise, Kieran, and Josh and six were from Y5 – Scarlett, Summer, George, Roman, Adrian and Sam.
After a few very hot days the temperature had dropped so fortunately we didn’t have to worry about playing in intense heat.
Dean were up to bat first and made a good start. At the end of their innings, Paddle were chasing a total of 251 points which included 6 runs from Dean. Paddle fought back and after batsman Roman achieved 2 runs the score was soon at 196 points. George’s innings took it to 200. Us 4 girls continued the attack to take us to 209. The break came when Josh came in to bat and scored a 6 by hitting the ball over the fence! The tension rose as Paddle needed another 3 points to win….another 6 took us into the lead by 3 points and then Josh finished his roll of 6s by hitting the ball over the school! Paddle won by 20 points finishing on 271 points.
At tea we had juice and delicious fairy cakes and the sugar injection changed everything! There was time for another quick game. Paddle batted first and Adrian scored a 6 followed by 4,4,6! The tally rose until we finished leaving Dean a score of 240 to beat. Dean did well only bowling 4 wides in 6 overs. They scored 4 off a superb bowl from Summer then I bowled them out 😊 Dean were on the attack to close the gap scoring a 6. The remaining Dean batsmen needed just 10 points to win. With Josh bowling for Paddle our chances of another victory were high, as was the tension but a solid hit from Dean left them just 4 points short of success. Josh clawed the score back by throwing the ball at the stumps and got a man out leaving 8 to win. Paddle won by just 2 points in the end - a close call but a resounding victory in both games. WELL DONE TEAM PADDLE!
