Match Report
Epsom College 1st XV vs  Harrow School
On: Saturday, 13 Oct 2018
Venue: Away

Lost 17-27

The 1st XV lost a back-and-forth game against Harrow. Epsom started poorly, conceding a try within two minutes to go 0-7 down. As the first half went on, Epsom gradually got back into the game, Tom Allen (Fa) eventually going over and James Webster (Fa) converting to make it 7-10 going into half time. Epsom started the second half well, putting pressure on Harrow and gaining a penalty, which Webster cordially converted to level the score at 10-10. A disappointing ten minutes followed as Epsom failed to convert their chances and Harrow did, going over twice for a 10-22 lead. A penalty try for Epsom and yellow card to Harrow got Epsom back to 17-22 with 10 minutes to go, but again Epsom faltered, letting Harrow through for a soft try with five minutes left. It could have easily been a reverse result but for a few poor team decisions. Plenty to work on and improve for St John's after half term.

Tries: Allen (Fa), penalty try

Player of the Match: Tom Allen (Fa)
