A strong and positive Buckhorn side took to the field against the renowned and confident Stalbridge u13’s.
Unbeaten side vs. unbeaten side.
Buckhorn bowled well and stuck at it in the field. Sam Godfrey, John Cooper and Alistair Johnson all kept to line and length against some aggressive batting. Everyone got their body behind the ball in the field and showed great bravery and focus. The Stalbridge total of 139 for 3 could have been a lot more.
Buckhorns innings started very well and upto the 5th over was on track with Alistair Johnson (19), John Cooper (14) and Grady Crittal (12) all showing real application and playing some great shots. But after that the innings slowed down under the pressure of tight bowling and wickets fell as runs were chased. WIth Buckhorn closing after 16 overs on 70 for 7. A total that did not reflect the match that Buckhorn played.
Well done the u13’s!
