Austin Friars Girls-U15A vs  Intermediate House Competition
On: Tuesday, 20 Jun 2017
Venue: at Home

The first match in the tournament was Clare vs Lincoln, which to be fair Clare dominated, winning 7 1/2 to 3. This seemed to fire up Lincoln who took on Stafford in the next match. Lincoln went into bat first and scored 5 rounders. An easy target to beat so Stafford thought. Lincoln fielded well and stopped many rounders and on the last ball Stafford needed a score to win - unfortunately for them, this didn't happen and Lincoln won 4 1/2 to 5.

The final match was Stafford vs Clare and this would decide all three finishing positions so there was everything to play for. Stafford batted first and scored an impressive 7 rounders and looked like they would win easily. Clare were determined and were getting 1/2 rounders at every opportunity. With two balls to go, Clare needed one rounders to win. The batter hit the ball and ran round all the way and Clare thought they had won. However, fourth post had been stumped so - no score! The final ball was hit and in a panic Stafford passed it to the wrong post for Clare to score and win overall. It was a thrilling end to the tournament.
