A Storming Start to the Cricket Season

Saturday 11th May saw another amazing cricket day for the School with all our teams playing John Lyon either home or away. The 1st XI played superbly with a very disciplined batting display from Benedict Relf (83) and Will Harley (49) putting on over 100 for the second wicket. Mill Hill ended up with 161 off 35 overs. Although John Lyon were 70 for 1 at one stage, once the spinners came on the match changed dramatically and we bowled them out for 105 with Tom Harley taking 6 for 30.

The 2nd XI had a very dominant win away from home, winning by 7 wickets. The U14As won by 9 wickets and the 14Bs scored a very impressive 198 off 25 overs (Jamie Stewart unbeaten on 79).

The closest game however was the U15As. They won by 22 runs having scored 88 all out and bowled John Lyon out for 66.

This success comes off back-to-back wins against Latymer Upper, Highgate and UCS for most of our teams, the only exception being the U15B loss against Highgate on the first day of the season.
