The U14 football team reached the final of the Bury Cup after an 8-2 win against Woodhey High School on Friday.
The Bury Schools finals for U12, U13 and U14 will be hosted at Buckley Wells this Friday with all games starting at 4pm.
Opposition: Woodhey High School
On Friday, the U14s played Woodhey High School in the semi-final of the Bury Cup. The U14s were dominant from the start and played with an intensity that could not be matched by the opposition. A hat-trick for Harry Graham-Scott and Joe Bangabala, one for Tom Sullivan and an own goal were enough to give BGS an 8-2 win and a place in the final. The U14’s will now play St Monica’s on Friday in the Bury Cup Final and Manchester Creative Arts and Media Academy on Monday in the Manchester Cup Final. Good luck to all boys involved in both finals.
The U13s lost the toss and bowled first. An attack full of seam bowlers struggled as the opposition scored runs freely with some aggressive shots and went onto reach 129 for 4 from their 20 overs. The pick of the BGS bowlers were Sam Gauge with 1 for 17 runs and Leo Davies also with 1 for 17 runs. With the bat BGS adopted a more cautious approach as Sam Gauge and Tom Kirby gradually built a partnership with some excellent running between the wickets. BGS reached the total with one over to spare with Sam scoring 32 not out and Tom scoring 44 not out as BGS finished with a score of 130-1
The Year 7 cricket team were excellent with the bat against Parrswood in the Lancashire Cup, scoring 125 off 20 overs. George Taylor with a top score of 35. George also managed an impressive 4 wickets off 3 overs for 8 runs. Arran Patel also managed to get his first wicket for school as the boys bowled the opposition out for 55 runs.
