Match Report
Sherborne School Boys-U14A vs  Bournemouth School
On: Thursday, 07 Nov 2019
Venue: Away

The Mini Colts squad struggled to get going in their County Cup quarter final away at Bournemouth GS after a long minibus journey and it took several minutes before they started to play with any real commitment and accuracy. An early try for Jonty Heard settled the nerves despite the home team levelling with a solo effort from their talented No 8. 3 further tries in the first half came from 'Playing to Space' including a brace for right wing Joey Lye who enjoyed getting the ball early with time and space.

In the second half, greater accuracy allowed John Li on the left wing more opportunity to show his pace and after scoring one himself, he created chances for Bertie Tillyard, Robbie Eccles and Alfie Reynolds to score. Rustiness after half term was clearly a factor in this performance, but there is work to be done in the weeks ahead to improve catch - pass skils and effectiveness in the contact area. Final score; Bournemouth 10, Sherborne 52.
