KING'S Hall girls and boys Under 13 cricket teams were both involved in semi-final action in their respective Somerset County Cup competitions at Millfield last week.

In their match the King’s girls fielded first and limited Millfield to 95 runs, thanks to an early wicket from Olivia H and a number of impressive performances, including Faith H who picked up a stumping, a catch and a run out.

In reply Lulu R scored 20 retired after which Emmanuella came in and hit a useful 17 runs, but in the end the King’s girls ended 10 runs short.

In the boy’s game, King’s fielded first and thanks to an extremely tight bowling and fielding performance that included figures of three for 10 for both Theo L and Nick W, Millfield were dismissed for 88.

When King’s replied they batted patiently and scored their runs sensibly, with skipper Noah J leading the way hitting 50 runs and taking the team to victory.

Ali Halls the Director of Sport at King’s Hall said: “It was brilliant to have both our U13 boys and U13 girls play so well. At King's, we have a huge amount of respect for Millfield and I believe both results were fair. Millfield's U13 girls had some exceptional bowlers and did not give us any easy runs.

He continued: “The boys’ game was extremely exciting and I’m pleased that Paul Thomas' team made it to the County Cup in his final season. During his 33 years at King's Hall, Paul has given so much to cricket over that time.”
