Match Report
Epsom College Boys-U16B vs  Hurstpierpoint College
On: Saturday, 01 Dec 2018
Venue: Away

Lost 0-15

Epsom put in their best display of the season in challenging conditions against a strong Hurstpierpoint side. Teddy Jenkins (G) and Teddy Pople (P) controlled the first half, with some accurate box-kicking and skilful distribution, respectively. Marauding runs from Ben Kersley (H) and Toby Reynolds (G) gave Epsom some go-forward and Epsom were unfortunate to find themselves a score behind at half time. Playing uphill and against the wind in the second half, Epsom dug deep and put in a monumental defensive performance. Bodies were on the line and the defensive effort was exemplified by numerous crunching hits from Alex Gee (P) and Freddie Gathercole (G), to name but two. In one particular standout moment, Aryan Sadhu (F) stripped and ran out with the ball, but this only typified the defensive effort from the whole team. The boys’ heads should be held high and huge positives and confidence can be taken heading into the final match.
