3.10. 2019 Away v Dauntsey’s Won 10-5

A friendly first match of the season saw our team take on a slightly younger but more numerous Dauntsey’s side. Both sides had several new players, with George Xiao and Daniel Hixson playing their first game for Sherborne. Dauntsey’s took an early lead, after several near misses from Sherborne. A superb long shot from Marius Cotorobai saw the first quarter end 1-1. Both teams upped their game in the second quarter, with two further goals from the opposition. Hugo Harding scored twice, and Henry Le Cornu also scored. In the third quarter, the more experienced Sherborne team started to gain the upper hand, with a goal from Theo Jarratt, three more goals from Marius, and some superb saves from Johnny Kirkwood in the deep end goal. Dauntsey’s generously lent us one of their players as ours fell victim to cramp. The opposition rallied a little with two goals in the final quarter. Hugo and Henry both scored again, ending the match 10-5.
