Today the U11s took on BHHS and were up to bat first. Alana got off to a good start scoring a rounder on the first ball which was closely followed by another great rounder from Mallory. Despite the good start we failed to score any more full rounders in this innings although there was some good halves from Beth, Tali, Macie and Alayna, leaving us with a very low scoring innings. The U11s then went into field and at times they displayed some fantastic fielding, which did result in them getting 8 of the 10 players out from BHHS, with three great catches from Beth and Alana, and Ruby and Tali stumping the others out between them. However the U11s were inconsistent in this innings and allowed too many full rounders to be scored, so were trailing after the first innings.
In the second innings it could have gone either way, but after having to reduce the good balls down to 20 and a lack of motivation and teamwork today, BHHS continued their lead and held on to this until the end. The final score was 9½ to Copthorne and 13 to BHHS.
POM today picked by BHHS was Beth for her fielding (who would also have been mine) and Tanishka for her batting which was deserved too! Well done also to Mallory, Macie, Alayna, Tali, Emily W, Emily and Tia for their efforts today.
Mallory 2, Beth 2, Macie 1½, Alana 1, Tanishka 1, Alayna 1, Tali ½, Freya ½, Emily W, Ruby H, Tia, Emily
