The scores show how close we are to the best of the South West and just how much progress we have made as a College. Our morning matches against St Swithun's and St Mary's Calne were so tight, with shots to win. However, our narrow defeats meant we qualified for the Championship Division for the top 8 schools in the SW. Here we continued to compete, going ahead against Godolphin, before they came back to score a winner in the dying seconds. We had another another really tight battle with St Swithun's, but calls and luck was not on our side with another 2-3 defeat. And so, despite some exhausted legs, we dug even deeper, producing a fantastic team performance to hold Downe House to a 3-3 draw, scoring some incredible 'team goals'.
