Match Report 5/10/17

Team: First 11

Opponent: Kenton

Memorable moments: The high energy, enthusiastic and opportunistic approach that has served us so well this year was not always in evidence yesterday. Quick singles and not realizing that risks could be taken painfully absent over fielding was similarly stodgy letting Kenton score too many singles as they gradually overtook our total losing 7 wickets all the way.

We won 131/2 – 1 ½ against Braeburn Mombasa, a draw against Peponi and we lost to Banda 6-4. We were into the semifinals against Kenton. They were strong hitters. We batted first and only scored 4 so our fielding had to be accurate and fast. Lots of our players took great catches and we got them out with only 2 ½ rounders. The final was against Banda. We scored 6 rounders and our fielding was excellent. The best catch was by Poppy – a one-handed back dive to get their best hitter out.

Then we won the game with a solo goal from Guy. Our next match was v Banda. We dominated possession but couldn’t score. Banda caught us on the break with a minute to go. We lost 0-1. We responded well v Braeburn Mombasa, scoring plenty of goals. We beat them 5-0. Our final group match was a decider between St Andrew’s and the winner would take their place in the semis. We played excellent hockey and dominated possession. But we failed to make this count and once again we were caught on the break with a minute to go. We lost 0-1.

Winners

We knew the competition would be tough and we started slowly with a 0-0 draw against Greensteds but soon got into our stride beating Braeburn 3-0. Another 0-0 draw followed v Peponi. We were through to the semis but had one more game against Turi who had won all their group matches. They were on good form but we played well to win 1-0. Our semi final was v a confident home team but from the first whistle we played at our best and Kenton stood no chance. A hat trick from O M-T saw us to the final. Turi won the other semi final v Banda. This meant an all up-country final and our 5th game v Turi in 4 days! The Turi boys had had an excellent day and gave us a really stern test, despite one or two chances, neither side could score and so the match went to sudden death and then to the dreaded 1 to 1 shootout. After 3 attempts the score was still tied at 2-2 and so we went to sudden death. John & Russell held their nerve and finally Alister forced one of the Turi boys into a mistake and the tournament was ours. Player of the tournament: Alister

It was a scrappy match with a lot of bunching around the ball. Lots to work on before the next match.

Rugby v Hillcrest tournament 6th May 2015

Runners up

First match was against Peponi. Brian scored two excellent tries. We fought well and won the match. Next we played Brookhouse and despite their sizewe held our own and kept it to a draw. Then we played Hillcrest who did not have any structure so we beat them easily. Our last pool match was against Shamas. They were strong but like Hillcrest lacked structure so we managed to win by one try. In the final we played Turi. They were big boys. We fought well but they beat us.

This was a very tough match because Turi had VERY big players on their side who kept breaking through our line. We tried our hardest to score but we did not. Most of us got out of the match in one piece, although Ewan got hit on the head, Will got concussed and Barney got bitten on the hand.

U11a Boys’

We played well against Hillcrest but lost 2-0. Our next two matches saw us playing weaker opposition and we took full advantage to beat Greensteds 2-0 and Brookhouse 3-1. This meant that we had to beat Peponi to get through to the semi finals. We worked really hard and Alistair made some great saves to keep us in it but Peponi managed a goal right at the end.

Tennis v St Andrew’s – 26th February 2015

U13 Boys

U13 Girls

In the 1st seed’s match against Turi 1st seed, we began a little rusty but as we warmed up, our swings got better and our grunts louder. During the 2nd seed’s match, it seemed like Turi enjoyed directing the ball to Molly’s side, making the play lopsided. When it was time for the 1st seed to face Tur’s 2nd seed, Turi played less well. In our 2nd seed’s match against Tur’s 1st seed our serves were on top form and Turi struggled to make the returns. PH won both matches.

Matches v St Andrew’s & Greensteds 25th February

1st Boys’ Hockey. 3:2 win

In the first 5 minutes it looked as if it was going to be quite easy, with Guy scoring a brilliant goal, but Turi fought back with most of the possession. In the second half it was a different story. Pembroke had the bit between their teeth. Our passing was slick and professional. St Andrew’s were confused but we were taking no prisoners. It was Liam who struck like a green mamba as the ball shot in to the goal. Briefly St Andrew’s came back at us with a couple of goals, but it wasn’t long before Will Tozer scored our final goal. Exhausted, exhilarated and victorious.

Fortuna Favet Fortibus

Player of the match was Molly.

This was a tough but exciting match with which to end our season. We played well in the first half but could not score from the many opportunities we created. Turi scored just before half time but we came back strongly in the 2nd half and Alasdair scored to make it 1:1.

We pushed forward to try and win the game but it was Turi who scored twice in the final minutes. A good all round performance by the whole team.

1st Girls’ Hockey. 2:1 win

U11a Boys’ Hockey. Lost 1:0

This was not our best day. From the start our energy levels seemed low and we produced a lacklustre performance. A determined Hillcrest side took advantage of this and gained the win. we will bounce back after half term.

We stepped on to the pitch feeling confident. However, we let in a goal soon after the whistle blew. In the 2nd half we changed our attitude and scored 4 goals – 2 by Poppy and 2 by Kayleigh. Player of the match was Poppy.

 

 

Matches v Banda Saturday 7th February 2015 

Boys: 1st XI v Banda

On a sunny and dusty day, we were going to play our rivals, The Banda. A sleepy first half resulted in Banda leading 2-0 by half time. After a tremendous pep talk from Mr. Hudson, we headed back to the game dreaming of a dramatic comeback. Unfortunately the shooting was not on tip-top form as we only managed to score one by the end of the game. Thank you, Mr. Hudson and Oscar, for legendary coaching.

Final score: 1-2 to Banda

Girls: 1st XI v Banda

This was our best performance so far. Our passes were strong and accurate. Hannah, Katie and Georgia hit some powerful balls from the 16s and also marked better and better throughout the game. Also, Phoebe did some outstanding saves. Mairi, Molly and Dani worked tirelessly in the misfield and fed great passes to the wings. Tanatswa and Manuela made many speedy runs down the wings. The forwards definitely meant business by scoring four goals throughout the match compared with none from the Banda! The player of the match was Toyah Mowat.

Final score: 4-0 to Pembroke

Boys: 2nd XI v Banda

A strong team performance allowed us to control the game and score five good goals. Goal scorers were Alasdair, Tristan and Matthew. However it was our powerful line of defense which impressed most, not allowing The Banda to have a single clean shot at goal, and our determined mid-field who worked tirelessly to dominate the possession. Well done to Cliffie who was off-games but still came down to support the team!

Final score: 5-0 to Pembroke

Girls: Pembroke 2nd XI v Banda

This was the toughest match of the season so far, but we managed to break through with an excellent goal by Michelle and Ceci. Banda didn’t score for the rest of the game because of our great defense, so this was an amazing win with an excellent team effort! Players of the match were Holly, Ceci and Cassy . Thank you to our teachers for brilliant coaching.

Final score: 1-0 to Pembroke

Boys: Pembroke 3rd XI v Banda

We started very strongly with Toby and Shaun having many shots on target. Unfortunately, even with most of The Banda team standing watching these shots, their goal-keeper, incredibly, managed to save them all. Because of a mix up, we were playing some of the second team, as well as a first player and eventually they managed to slip past our defense and put two in to secure a win.

Final score: 0-2 to Banda

Girls: Pembroke 3rd XI v Banda

It was an exciting match, considering the opposition had only seven chaps to our rather more substantial twelve. However we stuck our heads together and decided it was best to split our combined crowd into two teams of 9. In the first quarter we tackled pugnaciously, taking the ball and completely and utterly bamboozling their goalie. Nyambura quickly scored a very cunning goal. In the next quarter Elaine and Katiya executed some fine-looking clears. Nyambura dribbled it in for another goal. For the rest of the match, Banda fought back strongly, scoring 3 goals. However we managed to keep the lead by scoring another 2 ourselves.

Final score: 4-3 to Pembroke

Boys: Pembroke U11 A’s v Banda

In the first half we played like headless chickens and by the end, we were 2-0 down. In the second half we got our heads back in the game and we started to play to the wings more. Now for Hillcrest we need to work on calling for the ball and playing our game. Thank you to Mr. Watson and Bernard for excellent coaching.

Final score: 0-2 to Banda

Girls: Pembroke U11 A’s v Banda

We started off the first half a little nervous without Krissy in goal, but Sophie certainly stepped up to the mark. We did not have the advantage of playing downhill and we made a few chances to score, but to no avail. They had one decent shot at goal, however Sophie kicked the ball far out of the boiling and tense D. For our next match we need to work on marking our opposite numbers. Thank you to our amazing coaches, Miss Darnborough and, of course, Billy.

Final score: 0-0 Draw

Boys: Pembroke U11 B’s v Banda

Having kept three clean sheets in a row we were confident of victory on Saturday morning. We were aggressive from the start and Ismail scored a hat trick in the first 20 minutes! The twins, Russell and Rex, were busy in midfield throughout the match and even though Banda got one goal back, Ismail and Rowan scored two further goals. Well done boys, that’s and 100% record against B teams this season.

Final score: 5-1 to Pembroke

Girls: Pembroke U11 B’s v Banda

As we went onto the pitch, we knew we would have to face the strong Banda side. We scored a goal in the first half which Mrs. Foxton was very pleased with. Unfortunately we were still two goals behind. At half time Mrs. Foxton congratulated us with our goal and for the rest of the match, although Amelia made some great saves, we let one more in. The match has given us lots to work on, well done girls and better luck next time!

Final score: 1-4 to Banda

Boys: Pembroke U11 C’s v Banda

We started off with a rapid 30 second goal. We had agile shots at the goal but the goal keeper was tough and stopped the ball many times. In the second half we scored another goal quite early on. However in the last five minutes, Banda swept the ball past Arthur. Well played boys and thank you to Mr Aung, Bernard and Angus for great coaching as we are still unbeaten for now boys.

Final score: 2-1 to Pembroke

 

 

 

Matches v Kenton 4 February 2015

Boys: 1st XI v Kenton

We started in the heat playing downhill and used this to our advantage. Soon after great clashes we scored. Just after it was half time and we were one up, however we knew that we had to work hard to win the match overall. We scored another two goals in quick succession to make the score 3-0 to Pembroke. Kenton then surged back scoring two goals before finally the whistle blew to make it a 3-2 victory to Pembroke. Guy and Allister were joint men of the match.

Girls: 1st XI v Kenton

Unfortunately we were missing Toyah and Kora so Daniella Ker stepped up, feeding the ball out well to the wingers. We were intercepted a lot during the match, but we got better as the match progressed. With two early goals we were 2-0 up within the first 5 minutes. However we struggled later on in the match to clear the ball from our D, leaving Kenton to be able to score 2 goals to equalise the score. The final score was a 2-2 draw. Tanatswa was the player of the match.

Boys: 2nd XI v Kenton

One or two of us were slow to focus during the warm-up but, fortunately, all eleven players were switched on when the match started. We scored four goals in the first half – Tristan, Barney, Alisdair and Clifford. Kenton managed to score one goal throughout the game making the final score a 4-1 victory to Pembroke. A good performance from the whole team, but there were outstanding contributions from Tristan, Tawanda and Lawrence. Well done!

Girls: 2nd XI v Kenton

We had a great start with a quick goal scored by Ceci in the first 4 minutes. After this we had roughly a thousand chances and shots on the Kenton goal, but we didn’t manage to convert any of these into points. Well played to Cassie who made some great clearances in defense. Also, well done to Holly for tireless work in defense. Well done girls, now for Banda!

Boys: U11 A’s v Kenton

After a long bus journey we finally arrived at Kenton. We watched the B’s first half and then went into a warm-up. After we finished our warm-up we headed towards the pitch. We started the match with Kenton holding most of the possession; however we didn’t let them through our amazing defense. Then we struck, like a black mamba, from nowhere. Ben trickled it in past the goalkeeper and Kenton collapsed under the pressure. We were victorious.

Girls: U11 A’s v Kenton

We started off scared to play Kenton but Miss Darnbrough said if we got a goal in the first half, we could all get 1 house point and chocolate, so we were determined to get one! Sophie did a good tackle, passed it up to Poppy who then scored. Billy had unfortunately blown the whistle but he was still being a very good ref and we all still love him very much and think he’s the best. The final score was 1-0 to Pembroke.

Boys: U11 B’s v Kenton

After a pleasant journey on the mini-bus, we arrived for our hockey match only to be met by the fittingly named Mr. Hockey! The match was tight, but Russell struck the ball well in midfield. Rowan tucked away an easy chance before half-time but Kenton came back strongly in the second half. It was only because of Ben that we managed to keep a clean sheet, who pulled off some amazing saves. The final score was 1-0 to Pembroke. Man of the match: Ben Moss.

Girls: U11 B’s v Kenton

In the first half we unfortunately played very badly and we let them score four easy goals. After half time we started to play better, however we still didn’t manage to score any goals. Aqua was our goal-keeper for the first half and she saved some amazing shots. In the second half, we only let two goals in and so the final score was 0-6 to Kenton. Players of the match: Tobina and Kale.

 

 

Matches v Peponi 28 January 2015

Boys: 1st XI v Peponi

We started off strongly considering we had lost two of our players. We managed to keep the ball in their half but, despite our chances and short-corners, we couldn’t get a goal in. In the second half we stayed strong but they got a few more chances and unfortunately they scored off a short-corner. We worked hard but couldn’t keep the ball in our possession for long enough to score. The final score was 0-1 to Peponi.

Girls: 1st XI v Peponi

It was extremely hot so we played in quarters which enabled us to have water and cool down. After the first quarter we were down 0-1, so this is now our 3rd match where we have needed to come back fighting with all guns blazing. Mairi got the first goal in, whacking it with power. We had a great team effort on the second goal with Tanatswa a perfect final touch. Such a well-deserved win, having had 80% of the possession in the match. Now we will strive for more spot on finishes. The final score was 2-1 to Pembroke.

Girls: 2nd XI v Peponi

We came out confident with a goal in the first minute by Tiffany, followed by another in the second quarter by myself (Michelle). Unfortunately our defense let through one Peponi goal in the third quarter to make the score 2-1 to us. However we upped our aggression which led us to a goal by tiffany off a brilliant cross from Tiva to put us firmly in the lead. Defense, defense, defense; We still need to put in a lot more work but we’ll work on it girls. The final score was 3-1 to Pembroke.

Boys: 2nd XI v Peponi

We played very well in the first half of the match and created a number of good scoring opportunities, but we lacked the necessary accuracy and aggression in the D to score. On the other hand Peponi had four shots at goal and scored twice to be 0-2 up at half time. We fought back and Shaun made the score 1-2 to set up and exciting final quarter. Unfortunately we were not clinical enough in their D and their big hitters took advantage of our commitment to score and caught us short in defense, adding one more goal. The final score was, unfortunately, 1-3 but it was another efficient performance.

Girls: 3rd XI v Peponi

It was an exciting first match for us, with some tumbles, Leila swallowing a bee and too many missed chances at goal! Although we need to work on our spacing, we made some impressive improvements during the match; we certainly gave Peponi a run for their money. Well done girls, now bring on the Banda! The final score was a 0-0 draw.

Girls: U11 A’s v Peponi

For the first half we had the task of working uphill, however we used our space well and managed to put continuous pressure in their D, taking several shots at their goal. Unfortunately we weren’t aiming for the spaces, making it easy for their keeper to make the saves. The second half proved more challenging and we let 3 goals in, all in the final 8 minutes of the game! Better luck next time. The final score was 0-3 to Peponi.

Boys: U11 A’s v Peponi

We knew that Peponi would probably be our toughest game so far and it proved to be the case in a closely fought encounter. We started brightly and enjoyed the majority of the possession, but we were unable to force many clear chances. Our attacking play improved steadily but ultimately we were not clinical enough around the D and couldn’t force a goal to clinch victory. The final score was a 0-0 draw.

Boys: U11 B’s v Peponi

On a blistering day, Russell won the toss and chose for us to start downhill. Peponi were asleep for the first quarter and we made several chances before Russell scored the only goal of the match. Rex and Rowan came close, but Peponi tightened up their defense and the game became very close. Donell was strong in defense and we held on for an impressive victory. The final score was 1-0 to Pembroke.

Girls: U11 B’s v Peponi

We got to Peponi knowing that it was going to be hard match, but we tried our best. Amelia was incredible in goal, saving most of the shots that came at her, but unfortunately Peponi managed to slip two past to make the final score 0-2 to Peponi.

Boys: U11 C’s v Peponi

In the first half we managed to score a sneaky goal past the Peponi players. We had strong defense and quick attackers. We scored another goal but Mr. Aung was not sure if he should count it. Our attacks got stronger in the second half, so our defenders were definitely pleased! We scored one last goal in the last ten minutes of the match. The final score was 2-0 to Pembroke.

 

 

Braeburn Hockey matches 24 January 2015

 

Boys: 1st XI v Braeburn 1st XI

We started off really well, but unfortunately we managed to concede a goal in the first half. We dominated the play from then on, determined to equalise, and we managed to score a goal to make the score 1-1. In the second half we played much better and kept the score 1-1, unable to score that deciding goal. The final score was, in the end, still 1-1.

Boys: 2nd XI v Braeburn 2nd XI

We made good use of Braeburn’s astro-turf by passing quickly and accurately, and scoring two quick goals. Once again our defense was excellent and Braeburn found it difficult to attack our D and score. We dominated the first half to make it 4-1 by half time. We continued to play well in the second half, scoring another four goals. In total, Tawanda scored three, Matthew two and Alasdair two. A solid performance from the whole team – Well done! 8-1

Boys: U11 A’s v Braeburn U11 A’s

After a disappointing performance against Turi we were determined to improve against Braeburn. We made a good start, scoring two early goals but then a bad injury to one of the Braeburn boys caused a long delay and we lost our flow. In the second half we got going again and created chance after chance with some good attacking play to make the final score 5-0 to Pembroke. Player of the match was Jack Ker.

Girls: 1st XI v Braeburn 1st XI

The ball was mainly in the Braeburn D and we had a few attempts at scoring, however we couldn’t get it past their defence. At the end of the first half we were 0-1 down but we quickly equalised in the second half. In this half our lack of stamina was starting to become evident and we became hot and tired. In the future, we need to improve on our fitness and aggression so that we can get the ball more often. The score was 1-1 and the player of the match was Kora Haigh.

Girls: 2nd XI v Braeburn 2nd XI

In the first half we started with Sassy scoring a goal in the first two minutes. Braeburn then managed to get past our defense and managed to score a goal to equalise. However Daniella scored another goal just before half time to make it 2-1. In the second half we improved our teamwork and pressure and we managed to score another 5 goals with our solid defense not letting another one past. The final score was 7-1

Girls: U11 B’s v Braeburn U11 B’s

The whistle blew and within the first 10 minutes we were 1-0 up. Braeburn caught up with us so that by half time the score was 2-2. It was a very good match and we all believed we would be able to score the last goal. Isabella, having been hit in the shins with a hockey stick, was very brave and managed to carry on playing. Afterwards, we were given a short corner and Tino’s pass to me was unfortunately intercepted, Braeburn then dribbled the ball the whole length of the pitch. “Bang!”; They had scored the last goal and the final whistle blew with the score 2-3.

1st XI vs Greensteds

Result: 3 wins out 3

St. Andrews were unavailable to play in our triangular tournament which allowed us to play 3 games against Greensteds.

In the first match we scored a handsome total of 53 and won comfortably.

In the second match Greensteds set us a target or 44 which we achieved with relative ease.

In the final match, we reversed our batting order and put our bowlers under pressure scoring 37. We bowled tightly and fielded well, and kept their score to 22; three good wins.

If we build on this, on Saturday, we should enjoy a good tournament at The Banda.

Match reports vs The Banda

Cricket

1st XI won by 11 runs

This was an excellent and exciting match with which to end our season. We batted first and found runs difficult to score on their concrete wicket. However, Guy batted splendidly for his 76 not out and Cody supported him well for his unbeaten 36. We ended with 128 for only one wicket. We all bowled well and our fielding was its usual high standard. The Banda made a good effort in scoring 117 for 5; but we were always in control. An excellent win.

Player of the match = Guy

U11A lost by 8 wickets

We travelled to The Banda on the back of winning the sixes tournament, and looking to secure an unbeaten season. We batted first and struggled, getting bowled out for 52. Although our bowlers kept it tight, The Banda batsmen were too good and they chased down our total losing only 2 wickets.

U9A lost by 36 runs

Their astroturf pitch was fairly alien to us. We batted first and posted a goo total of 254, but the loss of 4 wickets meant that we finished with 214. Unfortunately The Banda got 250 in reply, despite our top efforts.

Rounders

1st XI won by 6.5 rounders

We started poorly with our batting, however we replied well when we bowled the Banda out for 2 rounders! In the second half our batting picked up and we made 14 rounders in total. Our clinical fielding meant we restricted the opposition to 7.5 rounders. A successful unbeaten season.

Player of the match = Molly

In our first innings we scored an encouraging 9 rounders and we then fielded well to restrict The Banda to 2 rounders. Carrying on our momentum into the second innings – we added a further 12.5 rounders to our total. Well done girls for an unbeaten season.

Player of the match = Poppy

U11B lost by 3 rounders

We decided to field first which may have been the wrong choice as we were sloppy. We allowed them to score 7 rounders and we found that margin difficult to claw back, but we gave it a good try by scoring 6 rounders in the second half.

Player of the match = Krissy

U11C lost by 3.5 rounders

Unfortunately the first half wasn’t quite up to our expected standard but we were encouraged by our much improved second innings. Well done girls.

Matches vs The Banda 04/10/14

Cricket

1st XI

Result: Won by 65 runs

“This was a proper, and very exciting prep school match. We batted superbly and dominated the first session – Guy 71, William 45 and Tom 13 and valuable contributions from all the batsmen allowed us to declare on 178 for 6 before lunch. After lunch we bowled accurately and aggressively, which had the Banda in trouble at 55 for 6. We then shared the bowling around and the Banda battled to save a draw. Our fielding was excellent, including brilliant catches by Jack and Tatenda. A splendid result – well done to the whole team.”

Player of the match: Guy for his 71 and 6 wickets.

2nd XI

Result: won by 47 runs

“We posted a good score of 128. Ewan batted throughout ending with 39 not out, Liam had 20 and Arthur and Rider both chipped in. We bowled brilliantly and Towanda and Debasien both took 2 wickets each as The Banda were skittles with three overs to spare. A great all round performance.”

Player of the match: Ewan Page

Under 11A

Result: won by 105 runs

“Another strong batting performance from Jolyon, with support from Ben resulted in a 100 run partnership. Support from Oli and Joss also contributed to the total of 180-6. A strong bowling performance meant we bowled them out for 75.”

Player of the match: Ben Starling

Under 11B

Result: winning draw

“We batted well to post a very respectable total of 165 runs. Our fielding was also strong, and it got better and better throughout the innings. Unfortunately we couldn’t quite get the last wicket, but it was arguably our best match so far.”

Player of the match: ???

Under 9A

Result: lost by 32 runs

“We started really well after being put into bat first. Runs from all four pairs meant that we had a strong total but we were unlucky to lose two quick wickets at the end of our innings to leave our total runs at 232. It was the Banda’s turn to bat and they proved to be as strong with the bat as they were with the ball. They lost a wicket early on thanks to Sam but unfortunately our wide bowling meant they could easily chase down our total. They finished with a score of 264. Despite the score line, Mr Layton was pleased with the way we showed improvements and composed ourselves on the field. Bring on our first win… It will come soon!”

Under 9B vs Peponi 

Result: loss by 110 runs

“We only managed to take one wicket against the strong Peponi side. Unfortunately our batting also wasn’t at the races, with 5 batsmen posting minus scores. However, everyone represented the school well.”

Rounders

1st XI

Result: Won 12.5-12

“Mrs Watson’s blood pressure had just about returned to normal after we had an extremely close and tense match against a much improved Banda team. The Banda were leading by 2 rounders at half time. However, the girls kept their cool and they only scored 3.5 rounders in the second half. Needing 6 to win, pressure was on. We then needed 1.5 rounders off the final 9 balls. With 4 balls remaining, Toyah hit the winning half rounder. What a game!”

Players of the match: Tanatswa for great bowling and Katie for her 3 rounders.

2nd XI Rounders vs Banda

Result: Won 11-3 ½

“We were a bit nervous and tense as we went into bat to start the match off. Cici and Joey then started the scoring, and we totaled a comfortable 6 ½. We then fielded and blew the crows and opposition away with our sharp and slick fielding skills. We took catches left, right and centre and during Banda’s last innings we prevented them from scoring anything! Joey was the top scorer with 2 ½ and also took 3 great catches. The whole team did themselves proud with a fantastic performance”.

Player of the match: Joey Taylor

3rd XI

Result: Won 18-7

“We started brillianty, particularly noticeable was the fielding. We managed to gain a strong lead at the half time break. The team could then play without fear which seemed to spur us on to an even bigger margin of victory.”

Players of the match: Phoebe and Elaine

U11A’s vs Banda

Result: Won 15- 6 ½

“We started off confident to beat The Banda ‘frenemies’. Summer won the toss and chose to field first. We started the fielding off well with Summer taking a great catch. We went into bat and a special mention should go to Poppy for her great effort. At half time the score was 6 – 3 ½ to us. In the second innings, our fielding and batting had improved dramatically with both Summer and Imo taking great catches. At least everybody in the team scored a rounder with the final score totalling 15 – 6 ½. A special mention should go to Imo and Kayleigh for their tight fielding. Well done girls!”

Player of the match: Summer

Under 11B

Result: won 12-9

Players of the match: Ella and Isabella

Under 11C

Result: loss 10-6

“Although it was a great effort with the batting, it wasn’t quite enough. We played very well and played very hard too, but this was a strong Banda side. A very pleasing second half resulted in us reaching a total of 6 rounders. Well done girls!”

Player of the match: Cat for her good fielding

Under 9A

Result: loss 12.5-5

“After a few changes on the pitch, our fielding improved massively. Cora took a super catch at back-stop and Evie was on fire at second base. Our batting wasn’t quite as slick, and wasn’t enough to overcome the Banda”

Player of the match: Ella Starling

U9B’s vs Peponi

Result: Lost 2 ½ – 8 ½

“Having lost the toss we were lucky enough to field first. We were slow to find our feet but soon got into the swing of things with Anoushka’s quick thinking at second base, resulting in a better outcome at fourth base. We found the batting tough at first, although Amelia and Anoushka ensured 2 ½ rounders. Well done girls, better luck next time”

This was another gritty performance by the 1st XI; having been 2 wickets down in the first over, we batted extremely well to reach the total of 142 runs – Guy top scored with 75 not out, Tom 19 and Jack 17. We bowled tightly and fielded splendidly to keep their big-hitting batsmen to 96 runs.

Player of the match = Guy Gowar

2nd XI won by 27 runs

We started off poorly, losing early wickets. Liam had different ideas though, scoring a magnificent 45 not out to anchor the Pembroke innings to a total of 115. We bowled very well, especially Oskar who tore through their batsmen, taking 6 wickets! A solid team performance meant we restricted them to 88 runs.

Players of the match = Liam and Oskar

U11A won by 78 runs

After the first batted well, Frank and Ben put on 68 to bring up the 100 in no time. We finished on 138 with Frank unfortunately falling one short of his half century. Braeburn’s batting was helped by some poor catching, but the bowling was enough to restrict them to 38.

Player of the match = Frank

U11B won

In an extraordinary game, we gifted them 88 runs in extras, and with only 13 runs coming off the bat, they posted 101. Although we batted well to reach the target, we got sloppy and took risks.

Rounders

1st XI won by 15.5 rounders to 7

“Our first target was to score double figures in our first batting innings – we nearly did it with a pleasing total of 9. There is one word to describe our fielding performance – slick! We even got 2 double outs – which is when you get 2 players out on one ball.”

Player of the match = Molly Clarke

3rd XI won by 16.5 rounders to 6.5

We played magnificently, especially in the 2nd half which involved some high quality batting and fielding.

Although we started off batting sloppily, we recovered well by putting our bodies on the line in the field.

Player of the match = Poppy

2nd XI vs Kenton

Result: lost by 79 runs

Under 11A vs Kenton

Result: tie

Joss Gowar provided the match report. After keeping them down to 91 thanks to tight bowling from Rex and Yann, we were unable to replicate that in our batting, slumping to 15-4 “before Frank an Connor steadied the ship”. But a good middle and lower order batting performance meant we were level with their total.

Kora Haigh provided the match report. “Our goal was to get all the opposition batters out before their 27 balls, which we achieved with 3 balls to spare. Our batting was horrendous, but in the 2nd innings our fielding made up for it and we managed to bowl them out once again. Our batting was better but still not at the level we would have hoped”

Rounders

On Saturday we played in a round robin tournament against Banda, Kenton and Peponi. With a strong preparation in the build up to the tournament, the squad was quietly confident to bring back some silverware, and they didn’t disappoint.

We comfortably beat Banda by 15 rounders to 6.5 thanks to a strong all-round performance.

The momentum carried on into the next game against Kenton, winning by 12.5 rounders to 8. A notable skill shown in this game was the fielding – in particular the catching with Toyah taking 4 catches!

In a nerve wracking final game against Peponi, the girls showed their character and skill to overcome the opposition by 13.5 rounders to 10.5, making us the overall winners.

A fantastic start to the season and a particular well done to Toyah for receiving the Most Valued Player Trohy!

We started with great pressure, pushing them all the way back to their try line. Debasien snuck in a try from the corner of a ruck, and Alastair also scored a cracker in the corner. Homer found space, and also scored. Finally with an overlap to help us, Sam scored another. Good work boys!

We started with our aggressive team and took possession and scored a smashing try by Cliffie followed by Tawanda with side step victory. Banda scored no tries in the first half.

Well, after 7 minutes we decided to join the match. At first we were forgettint\g the essentials; marking, holding our runs, and running into space. We played well in the last half, with Summer intercepting almost every pass, but it just wasn’t enough!

After watching the U13’s play and then warming up we were confident it was going to be an even match. At half time the score was 4-4. Some sloppy play in the second half meant that Banda took the lead but it was still very close. We look forward to playing better against Kenton after half-term.

We woke up at 5:55am (earliest time of my life) We brushed our teeth and had breakfast. After a long long journey we arrived in Banda. We struggled to get possession in the first half, which ended 3-1 to Banda. In the second half we upped our game, but it still wasn’t quite enough. Well done girls and thank you to all our many coaches.

We turned up at Banda expecting to face a tough Banda side. We were caught napping at the start and Banda took advantage, scoring two tries in the first half.

Result: 11-10 WIN

We new this would be a tough match and we were determined to win against our arch rivals. We started well and controlled the game. The only problem was we weren’t scoring. We had 25 shots in the first half and only scored 6! We started the 3rd quarter badly and went into the final quarter 5-9 down. Suddenly we managed to get our heads together and played some fantastic netball to regain the lead, and hold out for the win. Well done girls, now for Kenton!

The first quarter we don’t want to remember. We played really badly. The second quarter was much better leaving the score 7 – 4 to us at half time.

Result: 16-5 LOSS

We knew we had a giant challenge ahead facing Turi. It was going to be a tall order getting a good score against them. They were, as expected, using their greatest talents of height to their advantage. We worked our little socks off, but still, they towered over us. We had an amazing last quarter, where we marked them from behind to block overhead passes. Tyla scored a stonker of a goal from the edge of the D.

Clad in stash the U9 A’s ventured for Turi for their fist triangular. And let me tell you now, there was nothing equilateral about this triangular. We ran in 3 tries from Joss and Ben before half-time, but slacked off in the 2nd half before winning 15 – 5. After rehydrating, we took to the field and Joss scored after only 15 seconds. Six further tries were scored as we ended the match 35 – 0 up.

Well played boys!

Shortly after we played Kenton. It was a slow start until Menno scored a try on the wing. We beat them 12 – 0. Next we played Greensteads. Everybody participated in beating them 32 – 0.

We came at the top of our group and so we were going to play our arch rivals in the final. The Banda! It was a tense match for the first few minutes until Xander ploughed his way over the try line. We stuck to our structure and then William scored a second try. We won the final 12 – 0.

Cassie lost the toss and it was Turi’s first centre pass. We started the game well, moving into free spaces and doing quick passes. At half time it was 4 – 12 to Turi. All of us made some really good interceptions seeing as they were really tall, but also got tired and made sloppy passes. Well done girls better luck next time.

Result:  4 – 0 WIN

‘The first half was lethargic and non-eventful ending in a one-goal lead at the half time break. The second half was far more eventful, seeing us push it to the limit, scoring three fantastic team goals, resulting in us finishing with a 4-0 win. Now for the Kenton tournament.’

Player of the Match: A great team performance

1st XI Girls

Result:  1 – 0 WIN

‘We travelled down to Nairobi knowing that nothing but a win would be good enough for us against our arch-rivals. We started the stronger of the two teams and created a number of chances to try and give ourselves the lead but just couldn’t take those chances. The second half was pretty nail-biting with end to end drama, Serena pulling off some fantastic saves as well as the Banda goalie. We carried on pressing and finally our top goal scorer managed to grab a goal right in the last seven minutes. A deserved win girls – well done!’

Player of the Match: Hannah Wood for excellent defending

2nd XI Boys

Result:  4 – 2 LOSS

‘In the first half we were feeling drowsy and conceded a goal within the first two and a half minutes. By twelve minutes time we still weren’t awake and let in another two goals. In the last 10 minutes of the half we scored two great goals. Jack scored from a great cross from Homer and Brian managed to score a goal from the top of the D. In the second half Banda managed to increase their lead by one more goal, making the final score 4-2.’

U11A Boys

Result:  2 – 0 LOSS

‘In the first half, unlike other games, we started a little bit quicker, despite not being able to stop the ball. We conceded two silly goals, and even though we fought back with power we couldn’t find those two crucial goals. Unlucky guys, now for the sixes on Saturday – let’s dominate!’

Player of the Match: Cody Davis

U11A Girls

Result:  2 – 2 DRAW

‘After a long journey on the rattly bus we finally got to Banda. We started the match really well, playing amazingly with Emma scoring a great goal from top D with only 20 seconds left. At half time Mrs Aung decided she was not going to be too harsh seeing as we were 1-0 up. In the second half our defense was a bit sleepy letting Banda score two goals. We were not going to give up and were determined to score another goal which came true with Danique scoring a great goal.’

Player of the Match: Cassie Conway

U11B Boys

Result:  2 – 2 DRAW

‘After a slow start we finally began to talk to each other and move the ball around the pitch. We put together a good counter-attack and Barney put us ahead with a clean strike. Banda hit back in the second half before Barney scored again making it 2-2. A very tight game!’

Player of the Match: Barney Engel

U11B Girls

Result:  2 – 0 LOSS

‘We arrived at Banda feeling ready to win. We waited a while for our match and then finally did some warm-ups ready for our match. We played terrifically in the first and second half, but in the second half our legs were tiring. At the end of the match the whole bus waited for Imogen and Shauna to join us. On the way home the U9s bumped into a matatu so we had a good discussion about that.’

Player of the Match: The Whole Team

U9 Boys

Result:  2 – 0 LOSS

‘After trying to practice on a similar surface to the astroturf, we still took time to adjust. The Banda scored a very good goal after a break-away, but we had the majority of the possession. A second chancy goal meant that we were 2-0 down at the break. Unfortunately we could not break through their strong defense. And so we lost 2-0. Still a great performance.’

Player of the Match: Joss Gowar

U9 Girls

Result:  6 – 1 LOSS

‘We finally arrived at Banda after a long and tiring journey, so we found a shady tree and had a wonderful lunch. After our delicious lunch we went to cheer on the boys. We were playing on an astro for the first time. In the first half they sadly scored four goals. We didn’t do much better in the second half as they were really strong and scored two more goals, but we managed to claw one back. On our trip back it was quite boring until we had a bit of a bump… we all wanted to get out and the door wouldn’t open so we had to jump out of the window. Tilly was worried that some drunk men would come by so she brought a hockey stick to protect us. Thank you to Miss Darnborough and Sarah for the best day ever, and thank you to Tilly for protecting us!’

‘We went on to the court feeling determined to win. With all the B team winning the As felt determined. Xander went on first but unfortunately just lost. Michele then won his game but Ben had a tough time as the Banda seed one was particularly good. We finished with an overall score of 4-2.’

U13 Girls

Result:  4 – 2 LOSS

‘Having played Banda twice previously this term, we all knew to expect a strong fight. And that it was. We started well, and having played four matches, the score was evenly poised at 2-2. However, Banda had two strong top two seeds who just managed to beat our mighty top two. A great effort. A huge thank you to Henry for his superb coaching.’

Player of the Match: Serena

U11 Boys

Result:  3 – 0 WIN

‘Harry, Guy, and Cody went to the squash courts after the hockey match. We warmed up and then we split up and played our opposite seeds. Cody played first closely followed by Harry, and then Guy. Cody won the first two games of his match, therefore winning the match, and the same thing happened in Harry’s match. However, it was a different story for Guy, who won the first game and lost the second, so a decider had to be played. Guy eventually won after hitting the Banda player, so it was altogether a unanimous victory for the U11s – thanks to Mr Shae for great coaching.’

Result:  1 – 0 WIN vs. Turi, 4 – 0 WIN vs. Greensteds

‘We played our toughest opponent first, and came up against an ever improving Turi side. We had the majority of the possession and ended the game 1-0 up, realising we needed to put our chances away. Our second game against Greensteds was a much more decisive encounter, and we won the game 4-0. Now for The Banda on Wednesday.’

Players of the Match: Ollie Sayer and Ben Starling

U9B Boys

Result:  3 – 1 WIN vs. Greensteds, 1 – 1 DRAW vs. Turi

‘We played a good Greensteds side first and played very well scoring three good goals and coming from behind to win 3-1. Our next game was against a well-organised Turi side and we were unlucky not to win, but still managed a draw, finishing 1-1.’

1st XI Girls

Result:  3 – 1 LOSS

‘With our numbers depleted it was going to be a really tough match on an extremely difficult mountain-like pitch. And sure enough Turi dictated play in the first half and we were lucky to go into half time 2-0 down. In the second half we started playing some great hockey, pulling back a goal early on. Serena made some outstanding saves as Turi continued to attack and we were unfortunate to let Turi score a third goal at the end of the match. A good effort girls, well done.’

Player of the Match: Serena

2nd XI Boys

Result:  2 – 0 WIN

‘We arrived at Turi feeling confident. We then had a small warm up which was sloppy. Homer won the toss and chose to go against the wind. In the first half we were playing badly and Turi had most of the possession. We very luckily got a goal. In the second half we got a bit better with Homer scoring a great goal at the end.’

Player of the Match: Herbert

2nd XI Girls

Result:  0 – 0 DRAW

‘We arrived at Turi ready to play when we found out that our pitch was next to the airstrip. We arrived and did our warm up, and Hayley got the first push-back. We played OK but the ball kept hitting our feet and we tackled from the wrong side a lot. Looks like we have to work on a lot of things girls.’

Player of the Match: Hayley

U11A Boys

Result:  3 – 3 DRAW

‘We started with a lucky and quick goal hacking at the ball. We had a lot of chances but sadly none of them went in. After that it was half time. The defence hit it up hard for Liam, he got a final hit on it and that made the score 2-2. And so it happened again but instead we hacked a lot. Thank you to Mr Watson and Henry.’

Player of the Match: Liam with a hat-trick

U11A Girls

Result:  2 – 0 WIN

‘In the first half we were very sleepy and not passing into space. Turi had a few shots at goal but Joey made some amazing saves. In the last few minutes we began playing like proper hockey players with Danique scoring a great goal. In the second half we were playing amazingly with a great pass from Emma to Danique who scored again.

Junior Choir Festival at Braeburn – Report

‘After many weeks of practice, the day had finally arrived when we would sing in Nairobi at the Braeburn festival. It was a long and tiring journey to Nairobi but at last we got there. We were led into the hall and took our seats ready to sing. When it was our turn we lined up backstage and did some silly stretches. Some of us were a little nervous because it was our first time on stage. However, we gave it our best shot and sang really well. We enjoyed our break and sang even better in the second half. At the end all the schools sang one lively song which we enjoyed. On the way back, we had a wonderful lunch and some parents gave us tuck to share. It was, on the whole, a lovely trip. Thank you to Carol, Lola, James, and Steven for a lovely day. Well done guys – we sang beautifully!’

‘The forwards had an amazing start, using Will Millar up on the wing, setting up some great play in the D. However the defence made some sloppy errors but picked up their game and kept a so0lid line. Half time’s result: 3 – 0. In the second half we got three more goals to give us an extraordinary lead, although, due to some sloppy errors and confusion they slipped one in in the last play of the match.’

We went into the second half 2 – 0 up. We played well but they got a free hit outside the D and scored a good goal from the top of the D. In the last five minuted they got another goal making the end score 3 – 2. Thank you to Mr Alcock for brilliant coaching.’

U11A Boys

‘In the first half we dominated the possession but were too wild in the D to finish our chances. Finally Guy managed to convert a chance with a strike from the top of the D. In the second half we were more composed and scored six goals from Josh, Guy, Harry, and a hat-trick from Kit. Well played boys, now for Kenton – let’s keep the strike rate up.’

Result:  1 – 0 LOSS vs. Turi, 2 – 0 WIN vs. Greensteds

‘Our first game was against a forever improving Turi side who, with a very strong defence, would not let us get a shot on goal. They got a break-away and scored a good goal – final score 1 – 0. Greensteds was a different story, we scored two quick goals and managed to maintain a lead.’

Player of the Match: Charlie Beaton

U9A Girls

Result:  1 – 1 DRAW vs. Turi, 1 – 0 LOSS vs. Greensteds

‘We played Turi first, and managed to score our first goal of the season which was very exciting. We kept the pressure up and only let Turi score one goal ending in a one-all draw. We played very well against Greensteds too, managing to end the game with a 1 – 0 loss. It was a very good day.’

Hockey: Pembroke House vs. Peponi

U9A Boys

Result:  3 – 0 WIN

‘This was to be our toughest game so far. Peponi have always been strong and skillful, but we were up to the challenge on a hot day at Peponi. A quick goal from Ollie Myatt-Taylor followed by a team effort and finish from Ollie Sayer and a clean strike by Ben Starling from a short corner saw us take a 3 – 0 lead and we comfortably managed to sustain it.’

Player of the Match: Ali Paul for some breathtaking saves

U9A Girls

Result:  7 – 0 LOSS

‘Peponi won the first pass. During the first half we tried our hardest only letting two goals in. Unfortunately we were tired in the second half, letting them score five more goals.’

Player of the Match: Bella Ker

U9B Boys

Result:  2 – 1 LOSS

‘With a significantly improved performance from training, Pembroke had the better of the first half, but we couldn’t score and did well to keep it at 0 – 0. After going one down early in the second half, we showed good fight to get to 1 – 1, but a last gasp winner from Peponi left a bitter taste – but a good performance overall.’

Player of the Match: Joseph Clarke

U9B Girls

Result:  LOSS

‘With great enthusiasm, a rather depleted Pembroke side faced a strong, experienced Peponi team. We lacked confidence at the start, but we improved greatly as the game progressed. We battled hard but lost and we can now focus on improving our positioning and attacking play. We enjoyed the trip and loved watching a DVD on the bus!’

‘We had an excellent start, getting the ball wide to William and Will, who crossed it to George who then finished off the move with a goal. With the same process happening again Xander scored and we finished off well with George scoring a goal through a reverse stick shot. Thank you to the defense for holding up and to Taran for some excellent saves.’

Player of the Match: Taran

1st XI Girls

Result:  1 – 1 DRAW

‘We knew it would be a tough match against an experienced Peponi side, but we went into the first half feeling confident after Saturday’s strong performance. Peponi took control of the game, dominating possession and keeping the ball in our half for the majority of the first half. We were literally all over the place. The half time whistle couldn’t come soon enough! We were only 1 – 0 down and went into the second half determined to give Peponi a run for their money. It was a really exciting second half with end to end action and drama. Serena made some superb saves and our attack started to cause the Peponi defense all sorts of problems. Tanatswa scored an excellent goal and the final score was 1 – 1. A fantastic match and a well deserved hard-fought fraw. Well done girls!’

Player of the Match: Serena Werner

2nd XI Boys

Result:  3 – 0 LOSS

‘Peponi were a strong side but we played well and kept fighting. In the first half they only managed to score one goal. We had a short break and got on with the second half. We played well but were tired and made a few mistakes allowing them to score two goals – unlucky guys. Thank you to Mr Alcock for great coaching.’

Player of the Match: Jason

2nd XI Girls

Result:  1 – 0 WIN

‘In the first half, we dominated the game with solid passes and lots of short corners, but sadly not enough goals. India managed to score a goal making the score 1 – 0 at half time. Peponi upped their game tremendously in the second half but our defense stood strong and we remain an unbeaten team!’

Players of the Match: Cassia Seth-Smith for her incredible hits and Hayley Clarke for her relentless tackles

3rd XI Boys

Result:  3 – 0 LOSS

‘At first we were not as awake as we should have been and by doing so let in two soft goals in the first half. However in the second half we were much more awake and had multiple chances to score, but couldn’t quite make it happen. We kept our spirits up until the end – at the end of the match a Peponi mother came over and thanked a Pembroke boy for helping her son (playing goalie) get up after he was knocked over. That boy was Cosmo. A special thank you to him for showing the world what Pembroke children are really like. Well done guys, you played your best – keep it up.’

Player of the Match: Charlie Middleton – an excellent defender

3rd XI Girls

Result:  4 – 0 WIN

‘Our game was a game of four quarters! We were all so keen and amazing that Miss Janes just couldn’t choose between us, so all 15 of us went! We all played well, using the wings and remembering to defend with our sticks down. At half time the score was 2 – 0 to us. After a delicious half time snack of watermelon and maggots, we went back on determined. Lucy and Sassi battled away and scored two fantastic goals.’

U11B Boys

Result:  1 – 0 LOSS

‘After our 9 – 0 win at the weekend we were confident that we would give the mighty Peponi B’s a real scare. On a very bumpy pitch we were dogged in our defense and held them at bay until the very last minute, when a goal-mouth scramble led to Peponi’s winning goal. Bad luck Martlets, better luck next time!’

Players of the Match: Arran and Tawanda

U11B Girls

Result:  3 – 1 LOSS

‘In the first half we did well with Phoebe saving a fantastic shot and Shauna scoring a marvelous goal, as well as the whole team keeping their game up. In the second half we got a bit sloppy with Mia dropping down to play for the A’s, but Phoebe saved another goal.’

Player of the Match: Shauna

U11C Boys

Result:  4 – 1 LOSS

‘We started off well scoring one goal which was great. After half time our defense was poor and they managed to score another three goals which was appauling… Thanks to our defense they did not score anymore goals, leaving the final score 4 – 1. Thank you Mr Aung, Henry, and Peter for great coaching.’

Player of Match: Oliver Powell and Acoa Omulen

U11C Girls

Result:  7 – 0 LOSS & 3 – 3 DRAW

‘We were five (due to sickness, poaching by the B’s, and many being off games…); they were 12. We played two short games of 5-a-side, 10 minutes each way; their players were fit and rested, ours were exhausted. We really didn’t play well in the first half, losing 7 – 0. However, we upped our game in the second half to draw 3 – 3. Well done girls.’

‘We turned up to what we knew would be a memorable match. The first half was one-sided with us not being able to have a shot on goal. In the second half we managed to regain possession and most of us kept our anger under control, not naming names… Victor. In the last two minutes Bug slotted a lucky goal and the score ended up at 1 – 0.’

‘After watching Glee and the boys play an eventful match, we hopped onto the astro and got into our positions. It was a very quick half with Tanatswa scoring a helpful goal. In the second half we scored a second goal making it 2 – o. A great team effort girls! Now for Peponi.’

2nd XI Boys

Result:  3 – 0 WIN

‘We started with Brian scoring a goal and then two minutes later Debasien scored. After that we started to get a bit sloppy and the half was fairly easy. In the second half they became stronger. Brian then scored an amazing goal to finish the game. Thank you to Mr Alcock and Mr Hall for amazing coaching. Now for Peponi.’

Players of the Match: Brian and Toby

2nd XI Girls

Result:  0 – 0 DRAW

‘We started off well and determined to win. We had a few shots on goal but none went in until just after the whistle went so it wasn’t counted. In the second half they had most of the time with the ball so we had to play extra hard to win the ball back. We played hard and tried our hardest.’

Player of the Match: Kora Haigh

U11A Boys

Result:  0 – 0 DRAW

‘The U11A’s started this game brightly and soon begain to create scoring opportunities. Sadly we couldn’t convert any of them and a mixture of good goalkeeping, bad luck, and the goalpost kept us out all game!’

Player of the Match: Harry Seagon

U11A Girls

Result:  4 – 1 WIN

‘We finally started with Braeburn delaying us. We started off well, sticking to our triangles and pushing down to our D with us scoring three great goals – two by Danique and one by Summer. In the second half we were determined to get another goal and eventually we did from Danique inside the D. We got a little bit tired in the last few minutes and Braeburn just slipped in a goal.’

‘The whistle blew and we made a sheepish start. Baaarney shepherded the ball well and we began scoring freely. With shear skill on display, we went into half time 5 – 0 up. Our kandoo attitude continued into the second phase and Connor completed his hat-trick, with Baaarney, Matthew, Jolyon, and Kit all ramming home several goals. Final score 9 – 0, and not a wooly goal in sight!’

‘On our first outing as a U9 squad. The boys were nervous in our first game against a strong Turi side. We battled through scoring two goals in the second half.

Result:  4 – 0 WIN

‘We started off well having most of the possession. The first half was very equal but in the second half we dominated and got four well-earned goals – well done lads. Let’s do even better in the next match.’

1st XI Girls

Result:  3 – 1 LOSS

‘We were ready for the challenge against an experienced Turi side and caused their defense all sorts of trouble in the first 10 minutes. They then took control of the game and dominated our half scoring two quick goals in succession. We scored a fantastic goal just before half time to give us a fighting chance to win. We played some really good hockey in the first 20 minutes of the second half and Miss Bartlett didn’t know how we couldn’t put the ball in the goal. In the last five minutes, with our energy levels low, Turi scored another goal. A good all round performance girls – now for Braeburn.’

Players of the Match: Toyah Mowat and Molly Clarke

2nd XI Boys

Result: 2 – 0 WIN

‘We started the match with great skill and flare and did not let them touch the ball. We quickly scored two goals and then we started playing like the under-7 G’s… Our attack was sloppy and we were reduced to hacking at the ball in a barbaric manner. Turi kept possession for the most time in the second half – lots of things to work on.’

Player of the Match: Jason

2nd XI Girls

Result: 2 – 1 WIN

‘All we can say about the first half is that we didn’t play hockey we played football… But luckily we managed to score one goal with our sticks! Turi upped their game and scored a goal making the result at half time one all. We played much better hockey in the second half, with added aggression and better spacing, allowing us to score another goal. Well done girls – bring on Braeburn!’

Cricket: Pembroke House 1st XI at the Peponi Secondary Tournament

Result: Winners

‘We went into the tournament with high hopes of defending out win from last year. We played Peponi first and with Xander Pauli and Will all making contributions, we posted a total of 89. We bowled solidly but with Peponi batting well, we won in a tight finish. The final was against a tough Kenton side. We once again batted brilliantly with William Millar retiring and everyone contributing. We finished on 76 from ten overs. With the best bowling performances of the day, Josh and Brayden opened fantastically, and with every one of out 7 bowlers performing, we kept the Kenton boys from reaching our total. A great Win’.

Player of the Tournament: William Millar

Rounders: Pembroke House 1sts at the Peponi Secondary Tournament

‘We went into our first match against Kenton a bit nervous but determined to do our best. We gave away a few silly rounders from misfielding. End Score 10-11. After watching Peponi play Kenton, we began our match against Banda, fielding first. We tried our hardest, but their batting and fielding was incredible. End Score 11.5 – 12.5. With Emma watching the Peponi girls foot position, we knew where they were going to hit. We were inspired by the end score against Banda, so our fielding was much improved. End Score 11-12. An amazing warm up for the girls, now for Kenton on Wednesday’.

Xander fell shortly after, and after William and Ben’s contribution, Michele came to the crease. Pauli and Michele put on a quick and flamboyant 70 runs, with Michele reaching 58. We posted 145. Our bowling and fielding performance was brilliant. Everyone of our bowlers bowled tight lines backed up by our well drilled fielding. We bowled Kenton out for 108, meaning that we won by 37 runs’.

Result: 13.5-13 Win

‘After our initial captain deserted us, I (Kora Haigh) valiantly stepped up to the mark!

Rounders vs St Andrews Turi

1st Team vs St Andrews Turi

Result: 12-9 Win

‘After the horror show at Kenton the week before, the 1st team girls were determined to get a good result against Turi. We field superbly in the first innings, with some outrageous catches that even Mr Raikes would be impressed with! We were able to restrict Turi to 3.5 all out.

We went into bat and things couldn’t have got off to a worse start, with out 2 best batters getting caught out. Our lower batting order reacted well to the pressure and slowly chipped away at the Turi score. We went into half time 3 rounders ahead.

In the second half we fielded well although the occasional mistake hampered our progress. We managed to see the game out with a good batting display and intelligent running between the posts. A fantastic result against an experienced and aggressive Turi side. Now for Banda!’

Player of the match: Toyah Mowat

 

2nd Team vs St Andrews Turi

Result: 13.5-11 Win

Well done girls for a good victory’.

In our next match we played St Andrew’s Turi. We won the toss again and chose to bat. We scored 87 runs off 8 overs and they scored -8 off 8 overs.

I was really proud of all of my players and I was honoured to be captain (Ben Starling). We can still improve on not bowling too many wides and taking all of our catches. Well played to all of the U9A team.’

Cricket vs The Banda

1st XI vs The Banda

Result: Loss

‘We were confident coming into the match having had two comfortable wins in previous weeks. Unfortunately, our batting performance was not up to scratch with Pembroke giving a lot of our wickets away cheaply. We only managed 94 runs.

We came out firing, realising we had to take wickets early, but with a strong batting performance from The Banda, they easily reached a total and with it, a convincing victory.

We hope to perform better in our next fixture’.

 

2nd XI vs The Banda

Result: Loss by 4 wickets

‘We batted first and lost a couple of wickets before Tom steadied the innings with help from Will Tozer and Ewan. We were finally bowled out for 141 runs. The Banda scored fairly quickly throughout their innings. However, we we also took a few early wickets. After a delay for rain, two of their batsman built a good partnership and reached our total with about 10 minutes left to play. Better luck next time boys.’

Player of the Match: Tom M-T

 

U11As vs The Banda

Result: 43 Run Win

‘After a few throw downs, we batted first and started solidly. Guy and Cliffy made useful runs, but Harry held one end up and guided Pembroke to 108. Our bowling was tight throughout, and we took regular wickets. With the rain threatening, I took two lush catches (Cody) and Tatenda castled the last man to hand us a 43 run win.’

Player of the Match: Harry Seagon

 

U11Bs vs The Banda

Result: 9 Wicket Win

‘We won the toss and chose to field. Jolyon started off with the bowling taking 4 wickets. Mathew then took a catch and took a wicket himself. Alistair did well to take 4 catches. When we went to bat, we did very well with just one person being bowled out. William and Liam produced some great batting. Thanks to Mr.Williams and Mr.Quee for some good coaching. Well played boys!’

Rounders vs The Banda

1st Team vs The Banda

Result: 13-8.5 Win

‘The big day had arrived. The first match of the year against Banda. Now if you don’t know Miss Bartlett’s win ratio against the Banda…it really isn’t very good and she was a little nervous!

We had worked during the week on our catching, as we are consistently reminded by Miss B that ‘if you want to win the match, make the catch’ and we were feeling confident after a successful week.

The 1st innings couldn’t have got off to a worse start. Nerves got the better of the team and through miscommunication and hesitation out in the field, we allowed Banda to command a respectable total of 6.5. We batted well and managed to keep ourselves in the game. Half time: Score 5.5- 6.5 to the Banda.

Now we wont repeat what was said at our team talk but the general gist was that we were letting ourselves down and that we were better than this!

Our 2nd half performance was superb, we were playing our best rounders with some fantastic catches that were worthy of the crowds applause! We dismissed Banda in 18 of the 27 balls for a final total of 8.5. We needed 4.5 to win off 27 balls. It should be easy, right?

And yet, we should be reminded of our diabolical batting display against Kenton where we were all out for 2 rounders!

But don’t worry, we kept our heads and won 13-8.5 much to the delight of Miss.B and Mrs Boyd Moss! A huge thanks to Simon and the ground staff for all their hard work with our pitches’.

 

3rd Team vs The Banda

Result: 17-5 Win

‘We started off batting confidently, taking rounders and half rounders and running as fast as our little legs could carry us, with Joan running inside the post at one point! Our fielding was fantastic, giving away few rounders. It was amazing hearing the crowd cheering for us. Thank you to Miss Meggy and Miss Laing for cheering their hearts out! Well done girls’!

 

U11A’s vs The Banda

Result: 8-7 Win

‘Emma won the toss and we decided to field first. In the first innings, our fielding was amazing and our batting was good but we made silly decisions, with the whole team getting out apart from Tiva and Joey. They scored rounders in nearly every ball. In the second innings, our filing and batting was sloppy but we still managed to get the result we wanted. Thank you to Miss Foxton for amazing coaching’.

Players of the Match: Tiva and Joey

 

U11B’s vs The Banda

Result: 14-9 Win

‘We had an excellent start, restricting their score to only two rounders while we scored 7.5 in the first innings. In the second innings, they picked up their game, but we fought back and won comfortably, by 5 rounders. Well done girls and well done Summer for being player of the match.

We bowled and fielding fantastically, opening first with Josh and Michele with Tom finishing the Greensteds side off with 4 wickets. Well done boys’.

Player of the Match: William

 

U11A/B’s vs Greensteds

Result: Win by 55 runs

‘On a warm afternoon, a selection of ‘A’ and ‘B’ players were put into bat first. Some tight bowling restricted the batsmen in the early overs, before Cody hit his own wicket! Josh made a steady 36 before falling to the last bal. Chasing 99 to win, William and Oscar ‘Pice of Cake’ Lefebvre took three wickets each, bowling Greensteads out for only 43. Well done boys!’

 

Rounders vs Greensteds

1st Team vs Greensteds

Result: 16.5 to 6 Win

‘After one of our shorter bus journeys, we arrived at Greensteds feeling confident after our victory over Banda. But we were reminded not to underestimate our opposition.

We went to bat first and whilst it was not our best performance, we posted a respectable score of 9.5. We fielded tightly and the half time score was 9.5 to 1.5.

The second half pretty much resulted in the same outcome as the first half. Final score 16.5 to 6 win. Well done girls, not for Braeburn’

Player of the Match: Toyah

U11A’s vs Braeburn

Yann and Guy took 3 wickets each as Braeburn slumped to a miserable 25 all out’.

Rounders vs Braeburn

1st Team vs Braeburn

Result: 22.5 -8.5 Win

‘This was our last fixture before going on tour and we were determined to get a win. We were wary of Braeburn as they had recorded big wins against us before.

We started well and capitalised on some poor bowling from Braeburn. Our batting wasn’t brilliant but some intelligent running between the posts kept the scoreline ticking over.

We fielded brilliantly. Our throwing was accurate and we made it very difficult for Braeburn to score anything. Half time score: 13.5 to 4.5.

The 2nd innings we continued where we left off. The lower batting order put in a fine performance and saw our final total at 22.5. Braeburn needed 18 runs to win.

We had some momentary blips with over fielding but some great bowling from Emma meant that we saw out the game. A fantastic win by 14 rounders. A superb performance girls, now for those English sides!’

Player of the Match: Mairi

 

2nd Team vs Braeburn

Result: 12.5-9 Win

`On a day of very one sided matches, we made it one more. In the first innings we delivered a few moon balls giving Braeburn a chance to warm up-it didn’t help! We also listened to Miss Jane’s advice and didn’t listen to our parents!

When fielding we backed each other up and Holly bowled well. We still need to learn to sacrifice ourselves on our last ball and take a chance. Well done girls!

Players of the Match: Holly and Hannah

 

3rd Team vs Braeburn

Result: 20-6.5 Win

‘We lost the toss and batted first, with Joanne doing some amazing hits. The score in the first half was 11.5 to 3 to us. In the second half, we fielded very well and took some amazing catches. Well done girls!

U11A vs Braeburn

Result: 24.5 to 12.5 Win

‘We started off with a long trip to Nairobi. Our batting was excellent and our fielding was ok, making a few silly mistakes. In the second half, the score was 11.5 to 8.5, leading by only 3 rounders. Our decisions were much better in the second half. Well done Summer for stepping up.

Player of the Match: Summer

 

U11B vs Braeburn

Result: 12.5 to 12 Loss

‘Our fielding in the first half was unimpressive and our batting wasn”t much better. After a pep talk at half time, we were more focused in the field. We fought back hard and narrowly lost in a very exciting finish.’

Player of the match: Phoebe Ajak (for outstanding batting)

 

U11C vs Braeburn

Result: 15 to 14 Win

‘We woke up very early on Saturday, went to breakfast and set off for Braeburn at 7am. When we go there, Giselle won the toss and chose to field. We were lucky to gain a Braeburn player who kindly made our numbers up to 8. In the first half our fielding was shocking, Miss Laing claimed. However, our batting made up for this and at half time, the score was 7-6 to us. In the second innings, our fielding was marginally better. They scored 8 and, with only 4 balls left, it looked like we were going to lose. However Tabitha, Nyambura and I (Georgia) saved the day: 8-8. There is a lot to work to do, especially on our fielding but well done girls for some great play! Thanks to our many coaches’

U13 Rugby and Hockey Tour of England Report

‘After 20 hours of no sleep (for most of us) apart from the teachers, we arrived at Malsis School on our luxurious coach. We headed into an intense training session straight away in the freezing cold

We left Malsis later that afternoon and arrived at Giggleswick School, where some of us met our parents. We went into the matches with confidence and both the girls A and B teams came away with victories, showing our Kenyan spirit throughout!

The girls had entered a Bromsgrove tournament which we came out of with some excellent scores, winning 2, drawing 2 and losing 2.

The Boys went on the play a strong and big side. We were asleep throughout most of the game, when Michele tried a mid-air football bicycle kick! We upped our game in the last 10 minutes but it wasn’t enough.

The day we had been waiting for had arrived.. ALTON TOWERS! We first went on probably the scariest ride in the whole park. Oblivion. Toby, William and Dylan chickened out…despite all the girls going on it! We went our different ways and experienced some more scary rides. Michele managed to win a minion for Emma that many of has tried to, spending lots of money in the process! That night we stayed at Shrewsbury and we were entertained by music and quizzes.

The next day, the girls played an 11-a-side match against St Martins Ampleforth which we were not used to. We lost but fought hard. The boys played an excellent game of rugby but they came up against a very good team, with one of their players being one of the fastest boys in the North of England.

The Girls played St.Olaves on Tuesday who possessed excellent skills. We lost, but the B’s had an excellent win. The boys had an aggressive encounter against St Olaves. We lost but we played our hearts out.

Our next game was a perfect forwards game because it was raining cats and dogs! We were asleep in the first half but we started to play our game and put in some big hits.

The next day we went to the Trafford shopping centre in Manchester which had lots of clothes and shoes! Instead, everyone managed to buy loads of sweets which gave us much needed energy for out last game of tour against Sedburgh.

The girls had a very tough game and one girl in particular called Issy was very skilled. The A’s lost and the B’s drew. It was a very good end of the tour for the girls.

The boys came were up against one of the best sides in Northern England. We kicked off and put pressure on their back line. Taran scored two amazing tries, running the whole length of the pitch for one. Victor also scored a great intercepted try. We lost but played fantastically. Well played boys.

Thank you to all the coaches on tour. You have been wonderful.’

U13 2nd XI Cricket vs St Andrews Turi 1st XI

Result: Win by 14 Runs

‘After a comfortable victory for the 1st XI earlier in the term, we sent our 2nd XI to Turi to take on their firsts. We were put into bat and made a decent total of 98 for 2, with good contributions from Paulie, Tom M-T and Will T. Our bowling was not at its best and, at one point it looked as though Turi would reach their target but a good spell from Brian and two good run outs from Victor swung the game and we secured a pleasing victory’.

Players of the Match: Brian and Victor

 

U13 3rd XI vs St.Andrews Turi 2nd XI

Result: Win by 2 runs

‘We were put into bat by St Andrews, and started positively, with Cosmo scoring 19 and Tarran a mighty 25. Kyle was also effective with his stylish 14 not out. Our bowling was generally tight- Eric, Taran, Pascal and Herbert sharing the honours with a wicket each. The final two overs were desperately close – Turi needed 18 runs to win; but an excellent caught and bowled by Pascal saw the game swing in our favour, and we won ‘comfortably’ by 2 runs. A good team effort.’

We bowled Hillcrest out for 17, and with strong contributions from Xander the game was finished very quickly. Very well played boys, now for Banda on wednesday.’

 

U11A vs Hillcrest

Result: 9 Wicket Win

‘After a journey disrupted by very title traffic, we bowled first. The Hillcrest openers were steady, but Oskar claimed a hat trick as the lower order had an absolute ‘Weston’. We bowled them out for 38 before Cliffy and Josh started the chase. Cliffy and Guy hit some great boundaries as Pembroke reached the target with only one wicket down. Now for the Banda!

Rounders vs Hillcrest

1st Team vs Hillcrest

Result: 16.5 to 8.5 Win

‘We set off for Nairobi on a sunny afternoon. Unfortunately we were now accustomed to the UK’s premier buses, and we were missing the DVD player and onboard toilet! The journey felt a little bumpy in comparison!

We got straight into the game realise from their hitting display that this would be a hard game. A few carless fielding errors allowed Hillcrest to have a good innings and scoring 5.5.

Our batting was mediocre and we were not reading the fielding positions well. Despite this, we went into half time 2 rounders ahead.

Needless to say, Mis Bartlett was not happy with our display! After our wake up call we went into field and really showed Hillcrest what we can do. Everyone pulled off some excellent catches and we dismissed Hillcrest for a total of 8.5. We batted well and kept our scoreline ticking over. Final Score 16.5 to 8.5. A great second half performance girls, now for The Banda on wednesday.’

Result: 28.5 to 8 Win

‘Emma won the toss which meant we were fielding first. Our fielding was amazing, only letting them score 4 rounders. Our batting was also brilliant with most of us scoring a rounder on all our bats. In the second half our fielding became quite sloppy but our batting was still brilliant. Well done girls!

Cricket vs The Banda

1st XI vs The Banda

Result: Win

‘We were confident going into this game and knew that we could turn the result around from our previous game. We bowled first, and with aggressive, tactical field placements combined with our accurate bowling, we limited The Banda to 123.

We knew we had a job to do with the bat and with Michele and Pauli having a great start, everyone who came in contributed strongly. This meant that we got to 124 with one over to spare.

A brilliant win. And not long until the Banda 6’s. Well played boys.

 

2nd XI vs The Banda

Result: Lost by 2 runs

‘Banda batted first and, despite our best bowling performance of the season, made 122-7 on a pitch with small boundaries. We began our chase well with Bug making 34 and Toby D making 27 but we lost a few wickets in the middle of the innings and, despite some big hitting towards the end we finished just short of our target. Unlucky boys.’

Players of the Match: Bug for batting, Brian for bowling

 

U11A’s vs The Banda

Result: Win by 125 Runs

‘We won the toss and chose to bat, Even though we lost Josh and Harry in the opening overs, Guy and I (Cody), rebuilt the innings and started finding the boundary. We put on 160 runs and ended on 171-2, after which Guy was ‘pining for a Ruby’. Our bowling was tight and Guy claimed a 5 wicket haul which included a hat trick as Banda were dismissed for 46. Now for the sixes!

U9A’s vs The Banda

Result: Lost by 42 Runs

‘We were beaten by a strong Banda team in an exciting game of U9 cricket. We were asked to bat first and scored 232 for 8. We bowled very well and took vital wickets until their final pair came in; and they made good use of their home advantage by hitting a number of sixes and finishing with 274 for 7.’

 

Rounders vs The Banda

1st Team vs The Banda

Result: 12.5 to 10 Loss

‘It was a scorching hot day at The Banda and we were determined to get our second win against The Banda.

Unfortunately our heads and feet were not in the game! Banda managed to score 5 rounders off the first 10 balls! We managed to get a hold of ourselves and made some great catches to restrict Banda to 6.5.

Our batting was a little temperamental. We scored the odd rounder but some ridiculous running put us on the back foot and at half time we had a score of 5.5. We were lucky to be still be in the game going into the 2nd innings.

The second innings pretty much followed the same pattern and we were disappointed to lose the game by 2.5 rounders.

On reflection we did not pay to our full potential and we know that we must play at 110% from start to finish in order to win the upcoming Hillcrest tournament.

We look forward to our rematch against Banda at Hillcrest.’

Players of the Match: Serena Werner & Toyah Mowat

 

2nd Team vs The Banda

Result: 16-10.5 Win

‘We went into this game with determination and desire to win-fuelled by a bribe of Percy Pigs.

In the first innings we tried our best, but just weren’t standing deep enough.

Our batting however was on top form, thanks to our early morning session. In our second innings we were on fire- our fielding was accurate and our batting continued to impress.

Top blond moment goes to Hannah, who threw the bat instead of hitting the ball, and then processed to take a slow jog round the posts but still run our Manuella and herself!’

Player of the Match: Holly for bowling

 

3rd Team vs The Banda

Result: 14-9 Win

‘We stated off with Hayley losing the toss and we batted first. We got 12 rounders in the first half and our fielding was very tight. In the second half, we didn’t play so well but still managed to get a comfortable win. Well done girls, looking forward for Peponi. Thank you to Miss Meggy and Oscar’.

‘In the first half we fielded OK but made a few silly fielding mistakes, giving away several rounders. Our batting however, was good and we were hitting into spaces. In the second half our fielding was better with Emma, Joey and Poppy taking two catches each. Our batting was even better with some amazing hits. Well done girls!’

U11B’s vs The Banda

Pembroke U11 Sixes Cricket Tournament

Result: Winners

‘With clouds looming large the threat of ‘serious duke’ look set to delay our start. After steady wins over Cavina and Hillcrest, we performed solidly against Turi and Peponi who were one of the favourites. Our tight bowling saw us through against Braeburn and we were suddenly in a repeat of last years final. After Tatenda took a solid catch, Kenton could only score 39 runs, which Guy and Harry knocked off in only 2 overs. Guy finished it with a six and Pembroke were the winners. Congratulations!

‘After the early rain cleared we won the toss and batted first against a strong Peponi side. Harry scored 44 as the rest of our batsmen got themselves out recklessly.

‘We started off batting with Jack and William. Unfortunately, Jack go out early on. Barney then came in and scored a few good runs. We ended up scoring 69 runs. Tawanda started off extremely well, getting an early wicket. Tristan also managed to get 2 wickets. The whole team fielded very well but unfortunately Peponi were able to beat our total. Thank you to Mr Williams for great coaching’.

U11C’s vs Peponi

Result: Loss

‘We came down to the pitch after a lovely lunch. After a warm up, we stated the game with us opening the batting. Peponi were not that comfortable at blowing and we managed to score 6 runs, with Peponi giving away 55 runs in extras. Our bowling was tight but some overs were not as good as others and eventually Peponi chased down our total. A close match. Well done to everyone involved’.

Rounders vs Peponi

U11A’s vs Peponi

Result: 18.5 to 12.5 Loss

‘We were beaten by a better team that had big hitters and made fewer mistakes than us.

Our throws into the posts needed to be quicker and more accurate. We also missed too many catches! Bottom line, our batting was not good enough. With 8 balls left to go, Tyla and Emma were the only batters left in to bat and we managed to keep the team in till the end of the 27 balls and all scored halves. We finished the first half down 10.5- 5.5.

In the second half we scored 6 rounders and gave away 8.5, so a better second half.

Bravery award goes to Tiva who was literally flattened by Peponi’s biggest girl going for second post. She made the half and the half for obstruction. Very committed play! Most dramatic and painful crash of the season!’

Player of the Match: Tyla

 

U11B’s vs Peponi

Result: 10.5 to 6 Loss

‘When we got to Peponi, we warmed up and were ready to start, Georgie won the toss and we chose to field. In the first innings we were Ok but we knew we could play better. In the second innings, we were much better only giving away 1 rounder and a half. We did not bat at our best but we tried very hard. It was  good end of the season for us. Than you to Miss Barrett for outstanding coaching!’

Player of the Match: Shauna McCarthy for taking two amazing catches

 

U11C’s vs Peponi

Result: 14-14 Draw

‘We arrived and we were very sleepy after a long journey. Tabitha won the toss and chose to field. We fielded well and managed to get some people out. Our batting was not fantastic but we scored a few rounders.

In the second innings, there were a lot of backwards hits from the Peponi team. Krissy threw some amazing throws to second post. We were all very proud of her! We go everyone out except for 2 Peponi players. Great game!’

2nd XI vs Peponi

Result: Won by 6 Wickets

‘The 2nd XI finished their season with a closely fought victory over Peponi. Fielding first, we were a little scrappy and allowed Peponi to make 134-9. Our run chase began slowly but Dylan and Jason shared a 104 run partnership to take us to victory with 2 balls to spare.’

3rd XI vs Peponi

Result: Lost by 4 Wickets

Rounders vs Peponi

1st Team vs Peponi

Result: 14.5- 7 Win

‘This was it, our final match of the term and we were determined to get a win.

We had spent the week focussing on our batting and to be honest you couldn’t tell after a lacklustre batting performance.

We went into field and put all the rings we had learnt this term into practice. We were like a well oiled machine taking catches, backing up and performing perfect gate stops. Peponi couldn’t get the ball through and at half time the score was 7.5 – 1 to us.

Our batting improved in the second half and posted an end total score of 14.5. Peponi need to score 14 rounders to win. We made the odd mistake in the field but overall we kept up our strong fielding and the final score was 14.5 to 7 win.

The perfect preparation before our tournament on Saturday. Well done girls!’

Players of the Match: Molly Clarke and Emma Beak

 

2nd Team vs Peponi

Result: 11.5 – 7 Win

‘Considering this was our last match of the season, I would have liked to have said the match started off with amazing hits and great concentration. Sadly this was not the case. Most of us were not hitting the ball, and our running between the posts was awful. But Imara set us up by scoring a rounder on the last ball of the first innings.

Our fielding wasn’t amazing so I don’t know how we held them bad. We tried our best but we were still not stumping the post with the ball. At half time the score was 3.5 to 3. We were shocked when Miss Janes started crying!

We went into bat and this time we did 120% better. All of us hit at least one ball and scored at least half a rounder. Our fielding was incredible, and this time we caught then stumped. We were talking more and concentrating even harder. End Score, 11.5 to 7.

Thank you so much to our amazing coach Miss Janes for her support and coaching throughout the season.’

 

3rd Team vs Peponi

Result: 21.5 – 9.5 Win

‘We bowled Peponi over with our excellent batting in the first half, scoring 12.5 rounders. Our fielding was tight and we only let them score 2.5 rounders.

Peponi upped their game in the second half and the final score was 21.5 to 9.5.

What a fantastic end to our unbeaten season. We did ourselves proud. Bring on the Party!’

Player of the Match: Natalie for excellent bowling and great hitting
