Tense finish as Under 12s see off Shipston

junior cricket batsman
Heading for victory: Bredon Under 12s beat Shipston by just one run

Bredon Under 12s carried out an average bowling/fielding display today, Shipston hitting 282 for eight.

On the return, Bredon chased the runs down confidently, leading to a tense and stressful final overs.

The last pair needed 10 to win off three overs.

But Shipston, keeping their two best bowlers until the end, meant business.

They took a wicket which left Bredon with the last over on 283 and in the lead by just one run.

Isaac Tagg played out a great over of classic forward defensive to win the match.

The boys learnt a lot today and fought to the death. A great all-round performance. Well done!

The Under 13s also won against Astwood Bank, which means an all-Bredon semi final.

Good luck, guys!
