This week the girls had 2 matches. Their first of the week was away against Caterham and Lila Bellamy was our Captain. The girls won the toss and decided to field first.
The girls got off to a good start with only a few misfields. Once again we had fantastic bowling from Emma Nathaniel and Emily Goodfellow took a great catch to get a player out. Caterham scored a total of 8 rounders so Copthorne had a good target to chase. The girls batted well with full rounders being scored by Lila Bellamy and Emily Goodfellow. At the end of the innings Copthorne had scored 7- the game was on!
During the second innings the girls continued to field well and they tried there very best to keep Caterham’s score down. Despite their best efforts Caterham scored 6 rounders bringing the total to 14. The girls knew it was going to be a close game and were determined to bat well. Caterham fielded fantastically in their second innings and Copthorne couldn’t quite seem to connect bat and ball. No full rounders were scored. At the end of the innings Copthorne only managed to bring their total to 9.
A great game girls – great fun to umpire and watch!
