2nd IX Rounders v St Christopher’s Lost 10-12

26th June 2016

The girl’s last game of the season was played down at St Christopher’s and it turned out to be a very close and exciting encounter. Copthorne fielded first and once Madison got her eye in with her bowling the batters struggled to score. Khushi at backstop helped her side by taking a super catch towards the end of the innings. She was quickly back into the mixed when it was Copthorne’s turn to bat and together with Lily’s help, scored most of the teams rounders.

The girl’s fielding was put under pressure a lot in the second innings as the home side began to see the ball clearly and picked their spot, taking full advantage of miss fields and over throws and putting them into a comfortable position. Batting also did not go quite like their first innings as the girls lost concentration and not perhaps playing as safely as they should have done when running between posts. Time was ticking away and the pressure once again got to the girls, falling 2 rounders short.

Players of match: Khushi and Lara. HP
