Year 9 Cricket: Southborough vs Coombe Boys 8th June 2021

This afternoon the Year 9 cricket team played Coombe Boys.Sadly they lost, having been bowled out for 59 runs, Coombe knocked up 61 for the loss of 5 wickets with 6 overs to spare. There was a notable performance from the captain on the day, Kulash. He was consistent with the bat and delivered some solid bowling to try and help the boys overcome what was always going to be a tough team to beat.

The team themselves were realistic about their performances:

"We started well. Our first two bowlers did well by taking a few wickets and kept the runs low ( Reece,Kulash). The 3rd bowler broke the bowling lead.
Batting could be a lot better. Most batsman were not paying much attention unlike some keen batsman such as Jacob S and Kulash. We need to work on  communication,fielding and concentration when batting." Kulash J

"Good catches also It was a great match - a bit of lost of batting and bowling was excellent and also Kulash J played very well (he is our captain) and also good bowling by Kulash, Reece P and Talha B."  Talha B

"For our first game back in a while we did decently well. I nominate Kulash for Man of the Match because he stayed in batting till the last over where he sadly got out, and he also managed to score a few fours,
I also nominated Kulash as Man of the Match because he was a great bowler and managed to get a few wickets, There was also one wicket which really stood out to me - it was the first ball of the second over that he bowled and it had spin on it: it landed on the edge of the crease and then spun in to hit the right wicket!
We really need to focus on getting the fielding sorted. we let through a few fours because our fielding wasn't up to standard" Leo K

"I'd say that Kulash was good. He stayed in batting for the whole of our turn, and made some nice bowls getting the opposition out. We need to improve a mixture of fielding and batting, but bowling is a big part of what needs to be practised.." Rowan M-M

On the 6th of May, Southborough played a challenging football match against Richard Challoner. It was a hard fought match from both sides, with an equal score line. The game ended 4-4 after 70 minutes of battling from both sides.

As the ref blew his whistle to start the first half, Southborough were straight in putting the opposition on the back foot. Southborough straight away had a few great chances, this was a strong start from Southborough. A few moments in, Oliver Mayer played a through ball over the top for Matei L to run onto. He ran onto it well and chipped the keeper calmly. Richard Challoner hit back hard and attacked on the counter down the right wing and slotted it under the goalkeeper. 1-1, Southborough cleared their heads and started fresh, popping the ball around then found them in a great position to attack the wing, Elis B pulling it back to Sam H: with a great first touch, Sam then steps onto it and whips the ball into the top right corner. After some real aggression and fight from both sides, the opposition broke through again down the right wing, slotting it and leaving Southborough minutes to show themselves before half time.

In the second half, Richard Challoner took the kick off, both sides wanted this. Carrying on from half time Southborough were caught on the backfoot and punished for this; they played through the gap in the backline and chipped the goalkeeper which made it 3-2 to Richard Challoner. Southborough caught the message and switched on. Southborough went in two times harder after kick off, Isaiah M saving the team making a crucial slide tackle off of the winger, This was the most important and best tackle of the game as Southborough needed a goal. Southborough found Richard Challoners weakness down the left side, so they penetrated it, Elis setting the ball back to Rowan G: on the first time he rockets the ball from the 18 yard line all the way in off the far side post – a great goal! After an all round great fight and aggression from the Southborough team, Richard Challoner hit them on the counter, their striker finding the goalkeeper out of his goal: he goes for a long ranged shot and clears it over the keeper’s head! Southborough now 4-3 down with 5 minutes to spare. Tthey give the last bit of fight they have contained in them, winning every 50/50 and great captaining from Oliver M,  Matei finds the penetrating ball in their backline leaving Anex V through on and slotting it past the goalkeeper. The last few minutes were so tight but the game  ended fairly in a 4-4 draw.
