Big Hitters Help Steer Higham To Emphatic Victory

In the quarter-final of the District Cup, Higham Lane's Year 10 cricketers produced a fantastic batting display against Nicholas Chamberlaine.

Put into bat on the Ambleside Cricket Club strip, Higham went onto the offensive straight away. Opener George Stevens was in particularly fine form, smashing the ball all over the pitch to score a superb 51 off only 19 deliveries, including some huge sixes, before he was retired.

Next in was Cameron Rice, who continued the onslaught. He too went on the attack and scored a very impressive 50 off only 26 balls.

Jake Allen also produced a solid performance at the crease, providing excellent support for his team-mates. He carried his bat throughout the 16-over match as Higham Lane finished with a striking score of 169-3.

Nicholas Chamberlaine then went in to bat and Higham were equally impressive with the ball and in the field, bowling them all out for 30 to complete a comprehensive victory.

In the semi-final, Higham Lane easily overcame Etone despite having to play the game on their astroturf pitch, and now face St Thomas More in the final.
