BOYS’ SPORTS REPORTS 23/06/14

1st 85-10  v DCCC Academy 221-8       Lost by 136 runs

(Sanders 5-27, Hardy 5 catches)
After reducing Durham Academy to 0-2 and later on 96-6 the 1st XI failed to take a couple of chances and restrict the visitors to a low score. Chasing 222 to win Sedbergh lost the top three against the new ball and never recovered, posting the lowest score by a 1st team for 11 years. A chastening experience!

1st 204-6 (Brook 57) v Durham 165-10 (Moon 5-23) Won by 39 runs

At 101-1 with Harry Brook and Alex Simpson well set, off 25 overs Sedbergh looked well set to post a total well in excess of 200. However some poor shots against good spin bowling saw a poor mid innings before Stephen Croft (49 not out) steadied the ship with aggressive hitting from Tom Hoggard and James Botham enabling Sedbergh to reach the 200 mark.

Alex Moon bowled with aggression and pace to dismiss Durham’s top four with the new ball. Croft and Topham bowled well, Hardy fielded brilliantly and when Alex Moon took his fifth wicket Sedbergh won by 39 runs.

U17 Cup:  Sedbergh 132-1 (Simpson 76*  Park-Johnson 39*) v Huddersfield New College  131-10    Won by 9 wickets

With eight players looking to redeem themselves after the previous day’s ignominy, Sedbergh’s under 17s responded well as they beat Huddersfield New College by nine wickets.

After taking wickets regularly on a low pitch to restrict the hosts to a below par score, Alex Simpson and James Park Johnson batted with composure and skill as they put on an undefeated 126 for the second wicket to put Sedbergh through to their second 40 over National Semi Final of the year, against Bedford School.
