Moyles Court School

Y4/5/6 Cricket Match vs Park School

Match Report

The game was a 20 over pair’s game. Moyles Court lost the toss and where put into bat, a decision that benefited the Park straight away by taking a wicket in the first over of the game. Callum and Matthew found scoring very difficult against 2 very good opening bowlers. With the score starting on 200, after the first 4 overs the score was on 198 after losing 3 wickets with Callum Smith being the unfortunate victim of all three dismissals.

Harry and Max also found things difficult, as they went through their 4 overs without scoring a run off the bat. Three more wickets fell during with the last 4 overs faced by Harry, getting out twice and Max once. The score finished on 188 after 8 overs.

Edward and Josh came to the crease and played really nicely and found things easier. Both batsmen were not out during their 4 overs with Edward finishing on 16 and Josh finishing 5 not out and the score shot up to 218 after the end of their 4 overs.  Edward and Sam then lost 4 wickets during their overs and only one run came from the bat, so after being at 218 after the last pair the score went down to 210.  Alex and William did their best to try and get the score to a competitive score but unfortunately they both got out twice, which left the score on 197 after the 20 overs.

The opening batsmen from the Park came out in an aggressive mood hitting plenty of boundaries during the time they batted and they finished 238. Moyles Court did take 14 wickets whilst they were bowling with Matthew and Harry taking 4 wickets each, Edward and Callum taking 2 each and Josh taking 1wicket and a run out. The problem was that despite the wickets the batsmen hit boundaries on regular intervals and with the Park captain hitting 30 during his time at the crease, it took the game away as the Park finished on 283 from their 20 overs, so a comfortable victory for them.

Man of the Match: Matthew

U11 Rounders v Sopley Primary School

Match Report

Sopley were an inexperienced team and when batting, Moyles Court took advantage of this weaker fielding to score rounders by pressurising. Sopley also struggled to bowl accurately, giving away 11 rounders.

Moyles Court did field quite well but could have sharpened up even more to get the opposition out even quicker. Our batting as usual was quite effective. Overall a good performance and a pleasant social occasion!

Sopley Primary School – 2.5              Moyles Court – 26.5 rounders

Players of the Match:

Nia -as captain she directed the game especially well, making good decisions and backing up other players.

Star– successfully batting and intelligently running to score well.

Y3/4 Rounders Match vs Buckholme Towers School

Y4 Match Report

Moyles Court were well drilled and were able to score well when batting with most players scoring either whole or half rounders with Alex, Kyla, Chloe and Matthew batting particularly well. Moyles Court managed to score 5 ½ rounders in their innings.

In the field, again there was some excellent fielding from Lea, Adam, Alex and most notably Matthew who fielded superbly. We were able to limit Buckholme Towers to scoring 4 ½ rounders and therefore ended up winning by 5 ½ rounders to 4 ½ rounders.

Man of the Match: Matthew


Y3 Match Report

Buckholme Towers won the toss and decided to bat first. Buckholme Towers batted well, but Moyles Court were drilled and through good fielding and good teamwork were able to restrict Buckholme Towers to scoring 5 ½ rounders in their 2 innings.

Good bowling and excellent fielding at 4th base and backstop, were a feature of Moyles Court’s excellent play in the field.

When batting, Moyles Court clearly had the upperhand, with most of the Moyles Court players striking the ball well and running well around the bases. With really good batting from Elle, Jack, Edward, Lola and Harrison, Moyles Court were able to score 7 ½ rounders in  their 2 innings – winning by 2 rounders.

U14’s Rounders v Bournemouth Collegiate School

As the first games in this year’s rounder’s season, we have made a positive start.  The girls were all focussed on the roles and responsibilities their positions held and worked very successfully as a team.

There was lots of communication between the girls as they were fielding first, and they got all of the BCS players out by ball 18, having scored just 2 rounders!   Determined but sensible batting during our first innings saw the girls score a steady number of ½ rounders, and 2 full rounders set us in the lead at 8 – 2.

A change of players for the second innings and a more cautious approach by BCS batters saw them score more points and level the score at 8 – 8.  We knew that going into our last batting session, we only needed to score ½ rounder to win.  The girls kept their heads and played with confidence to score a further 8 rounders and secure the win.

Final Score    Moyles Court - 16   Leaden Hall 8

Players of the Match: Batter – Alisha          Fielder - Rachel

Under 12 Rounder Match vs Leaden Hall

Match Report

As the first games in this year’s rounder’s season, we have made a positive start.  The girls were all focussed on the roles and responsibilities their positions held and worked very successfully as a team.

Nia became more and more confident as bowler and was a fantastic leader, guiding the rest of the team when fielding. Our batting was our weaker point, with only Suzi able to score an entire rounder.  As we progress through the season, I’m confident that our batting will become stronger and the girls will become more assertive in securing the points needed to win.

Final Score:  Moyles Court - 6   Leaden Hall 10 ½

Player of the Match:  Nia

Y3 Tag Rugby Tournament at Bournemouth Collegiate School

Match Report

Our group included the Park School, Buckholme Towers and Bournemouth Collegiate School. We began with our first game against BCS. Both teams exchanged tries in what was a very evenly contested game; however we ended up losing 9 – 8. Our second game against Park School again was evenly contested this time we came out winners by 7 tries to 5. Although we lost our third game 7-6 to Buckholme Towers we progressed through to the semi-finals due to the fact we had outscored two other teams.

In the semi-final we had a game of end to end rugby, but unfortunately we were edged out by just one try with a final score of 9 - 8 in favour of Yarrells School. Almost every player contributed to the try score, but stand out performers were Elle, Harrison, Edward, Jack and Lola.

Players of the Match: Elle and Harrison
