Our next match was against Crowhurst who reached 128-1 in their 6 overs which was going to be a tall task for our young side but JJ(43) and Charlie(13) put on 63 before JJ was caught and when Charlie was caught we were on 84 with 1 over left. Richard(12n.o.) and Kiera Blanch(3n.o.) got us to 90. Scorpions were next and batting first Richard(60n.o.) and Kiera(12) scored steadily before Kiera was run out with 69 on the board while Penny Clark(6n.o.) and Richard took us to 98-1.

Our final match was against Hooe and again we batted first with Ian Kitson(15) and Penny(12) putting on 34 before Ian was run out which brought in Jordan(12). Penny was run out as was Jordan which left Lou(17n.o.) and JJ(27n.o.) to take us to 90-3 and once again we bowled and fielded well with Carol(20n.o.) and John(16) the only two to reach double figures as they ended their innings on 54-3 with Lou(1-8) and JJ(2-6) our wicket takers.
