Match Report
Epsom College Boys-U14D vs  Harrow School Boys-U14E
On: Saturday, 13 Oct 2018
Venue: at Home

Lost 39-40

A heart-breaking defeat after a magnificent match. Taking advantage of the slope and wind the boys built up a healthy but not decisive lead in the first half, with some strong running from Josh Dixon (C), Aarav Rajnikanth (Fa), Harry Pearson (H) and Luka Woods (Fa). Two Harrow tries up the hill brought some sobering reality into the half time team talk. As expected, Harrow steamed back in the second half, and took the lead thanks to some weak tackling and inspired goal kicking in difficult, windy conditions. However, showing great spirit, Epsom bounced back with outstanding determination. Some good passing moves, support play gaining territory and strong running led to the creation of two more tries. Sadly, they fell just short of a momentous victory after a couple of costly errors and they will reflect on what could have been.

Tries: Pearson (H) x4, Woods (Fa) x2, Rajnikanth (Fa)

Players of the Match: Luka Woods (Fa) and Harry Pearson (H) - stood out for their immense attacking contributions but also both tackled relentlessly all day long.
