Kwik Cricket Tournament
Today Park entered a Year 5/6 team into the qualifying rounds of a Kwik Cricket competition, held at Wollaston Cricket Club. There were 4 groups, with the winners of each playing against each other to qualify for the County Finals in June.
Park got off to a flying start, beating Freemans B. We scored 307 compared to their 198. The second match against Irthlingborough Juniors was much closer and caused some nail biting moments! It all came down to the last over. However, due to some superb bowling and batting, Park came out on top and won by 12 runs. The third match was against Little Harrowden, which we won, this time by 26 runs.
This meant that we qualified for the semi finals against Earls Barton. It was a tough start with some excellent bowling by the opposition. But the skill of the Park team shone through and they won the match convincingly in the end (253 to 195). Due to time constraints we were unable to play the final to find the overall winner but as the top 2 teams qualify for the County finals, we made it through (along with Finedon).
The proudest part was when Park was given the Teamwork award which is voted for by the Young Leaders. It was thoroughly deserved as all 10 players showed respect and teamwork throughout.
