Katie won the toss and invited Cumnor to bat first. Having had very little team practice and with the threat of rain the girls were a little nervous! The Cumnor girls were making good contact with the ball and were scoring rounder after rounder. They finished the first innings with a total of 10½ rounders!
Unfortunately, it was our turn to bat and the heavens opened! Hailstones and heavy rain put paid to any concentration and with the pitch becoming very slippery the Copthorne girls were punished by excellent fielding from the Cumnor girls.
A discussion then followed whether the match should continue … in true Copthorne style, even though they knew they were going to get beaten … the girls wanted to play on!
Katie was our top scorer today managing to find gaps in the fielders and making 2 really good rounders.
Hopefully our next match against Great Walstead will see the sun shining for us! MJ
