The year 5 and 6 girls represented Oakhill at the county cricket final which were held at The Northern cricket club in Liverpool. The girls were placed in a difficult group and faced last years champions in the first game. The girls were set a tough score of 296 and despite some excellent batting we fell short.
In the second game, the girls put in a much better bowling and fielding performance. We restricted St Johns Burnley to 252. The girls struggled to score against some excellent bowling but left it a little late to score the runs. We sadly fell 15 short. In our final game we faced Woodlands from Skelmersdale.
The girls finally pieced together the strong batting performance from the first game and the strong bowling performance from the second game. We narrowly won by 2 runs in a great game. Unfortunately the girls didn’t make it through but did themselves and the school proud.
