In reply Oliver and Henrietta got the innings off to a flying start with the bat. After their 3 overs batting the score was already on 230. The innings went from strength to strength with everyone hitting the ball well to all parts of the ground. Freddie Mc hit 3 sixes and Matthew G hit 2 as St Faith’s ended their innings on an impressive score of 297 runs. Player of the match went to Henrietta for her excellent bowling and showing her brother how it is done when batting! Well played everyone!
