After being rained off the previous weekend, Brooklands Reds faced Bramhall Lane tonight in a re-arranged semi-final. Bramhall Lane are always a strong team but we were fielding Gabriel, Elijah, Thomas & Bodhi, so we always knew we had a fighting chance.
First round of matches saw us get 4 wins, second round and we got 4 more!! Lindsay and I knew then we needed just one more win to secure victory out of the eight remaining matches.... We actually got five more wins and sealed an emphatic semi final victory.
I umpired all of our team at some point (except Elijah, obviously) and I have to say they were all awesome. There were spectacular rallies in every match I oversaw, it was so good to see. Brooklands should be very proud of their youngest team.
Gabriel and Elijah maintained their unbeaten record, we will certainly have to peel them off the ceiling and prepare them for the final hurdle... High Legh are our final opponents, they have a devastating line up.... But then....so do we!
