The U9s won the toss however choosing to bat first the girls knew they had to do some strong batting and tight fielding in order to take the lead in the first innings! The U9s did not disappoint as usual and there were some great rounders scored from Freya, Micki, Tori, Georgina, Emma and Prisha. Once again Copthorne’s fielding proved strong allowing no rounders to be scored in the first innings and the girls worked well together managing to stump out 5 Ardingly players!
At the end of the first innings it was 12½ rounders to Copthorne and 4½ to Ardingly! In the second innings Copthorne extended their lead further with some superb rounders from Freya, Micki, Katie, Emma and Chloe some of which reached the cricket pitch! It was clear before Ardingly went into bat that Copthorne had the upper hand in this game however the girls continued on managing to stump out 5 Ardingly players as well as a further two players from 2 great catches from Freya and Micki!
Micki’s bowling was great throughout the match and the deep fielders Harriet, Emma and Tori were as solid as ever as well as everyone else! Well done girls another great win -Lets keep it up! TC
