The under 9B girls took on Brighton and Hove High School this week. Captains for this week were Rosie Home and Katherine Munro. It was a closely fought contest.
In the first innings Brighton and Hove scored 4 due to good fielding by the girls. Each of the girls worked to put into practice what we had talked about before beginning the match, the importance of good decision making and ensuring that they threw accurate passes to each other. Next Copthorne went into to bat with Rosie scoring a rounder. The girls finished on 7 rounders.
Going into the second innings the girls were only leading by 3 so they knew they had to work hard to hold their lead. The girls again fielded well getting five of Brighton and Hove’s players out and allowing them to only score 6. With Copthorne going into bat they needed to score over 3½ in the innings to ensure the win. The girls scored 6½, with Katherine and Sheen scoring rounders receptively. Well done girls!! KD
