Today the U13 girls’ cricket team progressed through to the Lancashire Finals in Bolton on the 13th March, having won the South Lancashire Round. They played some excellent cricket and improved as the tournament went on. There were 4 schools in the competition. In the first match, we bowled a little inconsistently, which gave too many runs away. We lost the game by 3 runs to Alder Grange School. In the second game, we won convincingly against South Shore with some outstanding batting from Abigail Ali, who had to retire after only a few balls. We then played Broughton School from Preston, who we fielded strongly against and limited them to less than 45 runs. Sadie Taylor batted consistently well and we won the game with 81 runs. Overall, 3 of the schools won 2 matches and lost 1, but because Liverpool College scored the most runs overall, we won the whole competition.

Special mentions should go to Sadie Taylor and Abigail Ali for excellent batting and to Taja Roberts an Libby Harrison for excellent bowling and fielding.
