Broxbourne School recently competed at the annual Calypso cricket competition held at Sele School over two days.
The year 8 and 10 competition started well on the first day with both age groups finishing third in their respective groups, successfully seeing them into the semi-final of the shield competition. The year 8 team won their semi-final but were beaten by a strong Chauncy School in the final, who they had previously beaten during the group stage. The year 10 team cruised through their semi-final and were crowned victorious in a close final to Simon Balle School.
The year 9 team competed on the second day and were undefeated within the group stage to finish top of their group. Unfortunately, they came across a strong Sir Henry Floyd school in the semi-final of the cup competition and were knocked out after a successful campaign with 6 out of 7 wins.
The year 7 team proved to be the strongest school of their age group winning all of their group games and comprehensively defeating John Warner by 38 runs in the semi-final of the cup. The cup final saw a close match with Broxbourne setting Chauncy 52 runs to win after a great batting display from Will Brown and Johnny Munday. Ellis Carter started well with a wicket caught and bowled off the first ball of the innings and Broxbourne continued to bowl well and apply pressure to Chauncy, eventually winning the final by 18 runs.
Congratulations to all those boys who competed and well done for a great two days of cricket.
