Ryde Academy’s U15 Girls and Sandown Bay Academy’s U13 Girls won the first of the Isle of Wight Schools Indoor Cricket tournaments this season at the Rew Valley Sports Centre.

Ryde Academy’s U15 team of Hannah Langridge, Beth Siska, Amelia Ward, Daisy Cassidy, Jody Pelling, Ruby Pelling, Beth Pelling and Rickie Morton won a well contested U15 Girls Final beating Christ the King College by 23 runs. Christ the King batted first and in their 8 overs scored 52 all out, suffering 5 run outs to Ryde’s excellent fielding. Emily Boynton batted well at the start for 11, and Laccii Gammage’s promising innings was cut short by a fine catch by Daisy Cassidy. Ryde, in reply, batted out their full 8 overs and totalled 75-5, Amelia Ward scoring a useful 16, with two fine straight driven fours, for a comfortable victory.

Christ the King reached the final by beating Carisbrooke, scoring 81-0, with Laccii Gammage 19no and Emily Boynton 15no, and holding Carisbrooke to 64-3, though Rosie Wilson hit 24 for the losing team. Ryde also overcame Carisbrooke, totalling an impressive 104-1, with Beth Pelling leading the way with 13 before being retired. Carisbrooke responded with 51 all out, Ryde’s good fielding again producing a series of run outs.

Sandown Bay Academy’s U 13 team of McKenzie Wright, Kirren Shaw, Lydia Cole, Lauren Thompson, Alice Hyde, Daisy Faithful, Emily Gibson and Sophie Gibson took the U13 title, beating Ryde Academy in the final by 51 runs. McEnzie Wright batted with skill and assurance to compile 28 not out in a Sandown total of 82-6. Good support came from Lydia Cole, with 13, and Ryde’s excellent fielding produced 4 run outs. Ryde’s reply began well but when the openers were stumped and run out by smart fielding, the innings subsided to 31-7, 6 of which were run out!

To reach the final Sandown overcame a good Christ the King team by 17 runs. Sandown’s openers, Lydia Cole (25no) and Kirren Shaw (11) set up a total of 85-1, which was enough to defeat Christ the King who scored 68-5 in reply, with Lily Oatley and Olivia Taylor each scoring 11. Ryde Academy won their way to the final by beating Carisbrooke College; Ryde totalled 81-1 and restricted Carisbrooke to 64-3 to win by 17 runs.

Both Sandown and Ryde will now go on to represent Isle of Wight Schools in the regional finals at the University of West of England on the 23rd (U13s), 24th (U15s) April.
