The 2017 spring season has concluded, and while the record shows that we were light on wins, the players all improved dramatically in our first season in the state competition. The bowling got straighter, our wickets fell less often, and run scoring kept going up. (Be sure to check out the ‘Gallery’ page for photos from this season.)
There is much to look forward to in 2018.
Next up is the fall indoor season, which starts the week of September 11. Look for registration information soon!
On Saturday morning, LFYAA traveled to Phoenix, Maryland where it lost to Lutherville-Timonium-Cockeysville by 7 wickets, and then on Sunday afternoon dropped a home match to Bowie-2 by 4 wickets. We are in action again on Saturday at 9AM at Overlook against Rockville.
Put it in the WIN COLUMN!
The LFYAA Archers cricket team won its first elementary school league match of the season last night at Overlook Cricket Ground, a one-run nail biter over Greenbelt ES.
The exciting match came down to the last ball, with Greenbelt needing just one to tie, and Archers Vice-Captain Everett Hontz bowling. The last delivery came in outside the off-stump, just close enough to be a good ball, but too far for the Greenbelt batter to get a bat on. The ball passed through untouched, and LFYAA had locked up the victory, 49-48.
The team starts its Maryland state 11U campaign this weekend, playing in Cockeysville on Saturday morning and then home to Bowie on Sunday afternoon at 3.
Yesterday was Picture Day for the team! The children were very excited to be wearing their state 11U uniforms!
We came up a little short, but everyone had a great time!
Here’s video from the match:
Our home opener is April 10 at 6PM. Come out and watch the match!
