U9 Rounders v St Christopher’s Won 15-7

26th June 2016

Wow … another unbeaten season!! Today’s captain was Gabrielle who lost the toss, meaning Copthorne were batting first. With a slightly larger team this week the girls knew they had to concentrate and as always keep an eye on the ball. Full rounders were scored by Keira and Amelie and halves were scored by Annabelle, Keira, Gabrielle, Robin, Eva, Charlotte and Amreet. After the first innings the girls had scored 8 rounders. Great running to 2nd post girls!  The girls had set St Christopher’s a good target so it was now up to their fielding! The girls fielded brilliantly making extremely tight triangles with Annabelle, Zara, Gabrielle and Keira. This made it very hard for St Christopher’s to get to 2nd post. We also had stumping’s from Zara, Ella and Keira and a great catch from Ella too. St Christopher’s had scored 4½ rounders!

It was now time to bat again and the girls had set themselves a target of doubling their score. They knew if they did this it would be tough to beat. Once again we had great batting and running from all the girls. Full rounders were scored by Ella and Keira and half rounders were scored by Gabrielle, Keira, Robin, Ava, Charlotte, Ellie and Amreet. They had almost done it reaching a total of 15 rounders!

The girls fielded so well in their first innings but their 2nd innings was outstanding! Copthorne managed to get 9 players out! Eva had a stumping on 4th and Ella had another great catch but Gabrielle had 5 stumping’s on 2nd post and 2 catches! Annabelle’s bowling was brilliant making it so hard for St Christopher’s to hit the ball and score. They managed 2½ rounders bringing their total
to 7.

What a great game girls and a fantastic way to end your rounder’s season! Every week you have batted and fielded brilliantly with no issues, you have been a real credit to Copthorne!
A huge thank you to all our parent supporters too you really make a difference! One VERY proud coach! HJ
