Ardingly batted first and Copthorne controlled the first innings with some strong fielding. Our bowling was accurate with Alys our bowler delivering very few no balls and with Karina working well as our back stop. There was some great catching from Liliana on second post with Charlotte making a great catch too. Our fielders, Elizabeth, Hannah, Jemima, Lottie and Harriet were strong too making it very difficult for Ardingly and they were only able to score one rounder.
Our batting was strong and the girls really pushed hard to score and as a result by the end of the first innings Copthorne was in the lead by 4-1. In the second innings our fielding was still tight with a great catch from Harriet. Ardingly scored a further two rounders which meant that Copthorne had won the match. Nevertheless Copthorne went into bat again maintaining their focus and determination. There were some splendid rounders from Liliana, Hannah, Jemima and Alys. LD
A great first match performance.
