Moreton Win First Cricket Game of the Season

The U15 Cricket Team played their first match in the National Schools U15 T20 tournament against Shrewsbury Girls High School on Wednesday 26th April. It was a tight game with lots of opportunities on both sides, but the Moreton side inched in front winning by seven wickets.

Shrewsbury Girls High School bat first and played some good shots which resulted in a score of 119/4. This high score no doubt concerned the Moreton team. After losing two wickets, Sophia (L5) managed to settle the innings by scoring a very valuable thirty runs not out! Shrewsbury High bowled a lot of wides which meant we reached 120 runs in just fifteen overs and for three wickets.

Shrewsbury Girls High School 119-4 off 20 overs (A.Slater 31 n.o)

Moreton Hall School 120-3 off 15.3 overs (S.Bureau 30 n.o)
