Match Report
Marlborough College 1st X vs  St Swithun's School
On: Thursday, 16 Nov 2023
Venue: Away

A fantastic fast-paced and fiercely competitive match, played with real intensity. We fought harder for the ball, showing greater determination, self belief and trust in each other. We competed brilliantly in the first three quarters, matching St Swithun's goal for goal, 6-6 at 3/4 time. Early balls and quick passing from St Swithun's tested our defence to the full, but it was fantastic to see us contain and wreck their chances and turn over the ball. We looked much more dangerous with the ball than in recent weeks; dynamic and skilful, really testing their defence. Unfortunately, in the rapidly fading light, we allowed a couple of errors to creep in and we gave away the ball cheaply to allow St Swithun's to take the lead. A fine performance to take us satisfyingly into the exeat.

MVP; Emmi Methven and Bella Smith-Bingham
