I think someone should have helped Caster as her shield was slowly giving way - it was obvious from Saber's expression that Gil was the bigger threat, and with only Caster, Lancer and Saber remaining, they weren't going to be able to get much more help against Gil once Caster and Kuzuki went down. She certainly held him off long enough for anyone to react if they wanted to.

Why does Caster have elvish ears, by the way?
She'd just kidnapped Sakura and attempted to kill Rin and Shirou. Why the hell would they help her?

Rider is popular almost solely because of the HF route of the game, though, which portrays her much more sympathetically
