Cricket in April

The 1st XI won their 1st round Schools’ Cup match against Armagh on Wednesday 22nd April by 167 runs.  BGS batted first warm sunshine and perfect conditions for cricket. The side lost a couple of early wickets.  However, Thomas Boyd (Year 12) batted extremely well scoring 83 before running himself out.   Ross Miller (captain) and Zach Kerr (Year 11) batted with purpose and scored 51 and 41 respectively.  The team scored 232 in 30 overs.  Armagh were then bowled out for 65.  This is a pleasing result and in particular some of the younger players should be congratulated for their performances.
