Lost 10 1/2 – 11
Copthorne opened the first innings batting and we were soon scoring. Alana hit a lovely shot but unfortunately fell at second post and was unable to complete a full rounder. Both Ruby’s, Freya and Beth also score half rounders with their first bat. Tali unfortunately was caught out on her first go however, Alayna, Ruby and Alana
continued to score on their second bat. As it was a timed match the girls didn’t get as many opportunities to score and the overall score at the end of the innings was 5 1/2.
Our fielding was strong and we managed to get 6 of Hurst’s players out. Alayna made a good catch and there was some great fielding between Beth and Ruby H and Alana. Mallory’s bowling was strong and consistent. By the second innings Hurst were ahead by half a rounder.
Our batting second time round was much stronger Both Emily W, Freya and Ruby H scored some great rounders whilst Macie, Beth and Tali scored some halves. Our fielding too continued to be strong; Macie and Emily V worked hard on the 3rd and 4th posts whilst both Alayna and Beth made some superb catches. As a result Copthorne managed to get 9 players out. However, Hurst maintained that half a rounder lead!
