Freya was the captain this week and she chose to bat first. We have done quite a bit of batting practise this week so I was ready to be impressed. The girls batted amazingly well, the best I have seen them! Full rounders were scored by Alana, Ruby H, Beth, Freya, Ruby O, Tali, Emily and Mallory and everyone either scored an extra half or full rounder. The girls managed to score a huge 13 rounders. Copthorne girls can most certainly hit the ball! After such a great performance the girls now wanted to impress in the field too. They didn’t disappoint getting all of St Christopher’s out in just 14 good balls. Stumping’s were made by Ruby H, Ruby O, Tali and Beth with Alana catching a player out from a backwards hit too. St Christopher’s only scored 3 rounders!
During the 2nd innings the girls were keen to continue to play well and score as many rounders as they could. Once again the girls impressed with their batting. Full rounders were scored by Ruby H, Ruby O, Tali and Mallory. Their total this time was 12 rounders bringing their final total to a huge 25 rounders!! Once again the girls fielded well with St Christopher’s only getting a further 4½ rounders.
Well done to all the girls who played. A great final match with an impressive batting performance. HC
