With half the U11 consisting of year 5s, Copthorne were only trailing by 1½ rounders after a very evenly contested first innings. The girls looked to get off to a good start in the 2nd innings by taking four good catches in relatively quick succession but our luck soon changed. Ardingly placed the ball well and took the fielders on, putting the pressure straight back onto us and forcing us into making misfields. The girls gave it a real go to get back into the match but simply ran out of time.
Scorers: Nia ½ (1 catch); Charlotte 3½ (1 catch); Esme 1; Abigail 2½ (2 Catches); Zoe 2½; Jess 1; Molly ½ (2 catches). HP
