Rounders success!

The LCS Year 7 and Year 8 rounders teams emerged victorious in their recent matches with Rawlett.

The Year 7s enjoyed an evenly-matched encounter with their Tamworth opponents, but eventually overtook their total before a hailstorm stopped play.  LCS fielded first and restricted Rawlett to 5 rounders, with some good fielding and excellent decision-making, particularly by Amelie at back-stop, and good bowling by Ines.  LCS then took up the chase and soon overhauled the Rawlett score, finishing the innings on 7 with Cerys, Izzy and Rosie all hitting rounders.  In the second innings, Rawlett added 3 to their score, but LCS took their total to 9 before the hail set in.

The Year 8s delivered a comprehensive victory, running out winners by 17.5 to 6.5. They shared the scoring around, but Lexi and Elsie were the main stars with the bat, while a very good fielding performance by the whole team saw them removing the Rawlett team with plenty of balls to spare.
