1st IX Rounders v Brighton (1 innings) – Won 9½-5
Playing a 30 good ball innings in this triangle we were up against Brighton first. Jo’s bowling was perfect and our fielding tight, as Brighton failed to score after the first 9 deliveries! The Brighton girls had some good batters and a lot of contact was being made, unfortunately they were just not hard enough to get passed our fielders. We had 5 rounders to chase!
It was our turn to bat and the rounders started to come steadily with Amber scoring our first one, off a second ball. Meg was our best batter today scoring 3 rounders. A good batting innings and another brilliant win for the Copthorne girls! Well done.
Amber (2), Sav (1), Harri (½), Charlotte (1½), Sophie (1), Ronnie (½) Meg (3)
1st IX Rounders v Hurst 2nd IX (1 innings) – Won 9½-2½
After watching the match between Hurst and Brighton where Brighton won 10-9 the girls were ready for their next match against Hurst.
We were put into bat first and we got off to a slow steady start with ½ rounders coming from Amber, Sarena and Sophie and our first full rounder from Ronnie after the first 9 deliveries. Charlotte made 2 rounders after some great speed around the posts and there were rounders also from Amber and another 1 from Ronnie.
Sophie finished off the innings with a great rounder off the last ball to give Hurst 9½ to chase!
Once again our fielding was brilliant! After 19 deliveries Hurst only managed to score ½ rounder! Well done girls a fabulous win Hurst were unable to score any full rounders – Awesome! MJ
