U9s into cup semi-final
Sway U9s travelled to Lyndhurst for their 1/4 Final U9 Cup game. Lyndhurst won
the toss and asked Sway to bat. It was a disastrous start for the visitors who
lost 2 wickets to the first 2 balls of the match to the impressive Lyndhurst
captain Ben Mayes. At the halfway stage Sway had a modest total of 216 for 2.The
later Sway batsmen improved the situation with sensible batting and good running
between the wickets. Luke Shearer (15) and Jon Pepin (8) put together a
partnership of 40 and Ollie Marshall (18) and Declan Treacey(3) added useful
runs in the final overs and Sway finished on 278 for 3.
Lyndhurst started slowly against some tight bowling by Harry West and Jasper
Condon. Ollie Marshall claimed 3 wickets but there was some powerful hittng at
the end of the innings by Ben Mayes who hit 7 boundaries in an innings of 39
which bought the Lyndhurst total to 253 for 6 leaving Sway winners by 25 runs.
Sway will entertain Totton & Ealing in the Semi Final on Tues July 19th.
