The U8 girls took on Cranleigh at rounders this week. After losing the toss Copthorne were made to field first.
The girls got off to a good start with a fantastic catch from Alice Renshaw, good bowling from Yelena Finnegan and good fielding from Amber Buggins and Amalia Finnegan. Cranleigh only managed to score 1½ rounders. Copthorne were up to bat next.
Copthorne batted fantastically with some great hits from Yelena, Emily Workman and Hermione Ashbee, who all scored full rounders. Half rounders were scored by Amalia, Alice and Madison McKay. The girls ran well taking risks and scored a huge 8½ rounders.
The second innings saw some more fantastic fielding and team work from Amber on 2nd Post and Yelena at 2nd Deep, making it harder for Cranleigh to score. All the girls fielded well getting 4 of the opposition out. Cranleigh added a further 5 rounders to their total. Copthorne batted excellently to finish the match with Amalia, Yelena, Emily, Amber and Madeleine Liu scoring full rounders.
This meant that the final score was Copthorne 17½ Cranleigh 6½. My fielder of the match was Amalia Finnegan and my batter of the Match was Yelena Finnegan who scored a huge 5½ rounders.
Well done to all the girls who played and thank you to all the supporters. HC
