Match Report
Dulwich College U13A vs  Whitgift School
On: Saturday, 17 Nov 2018
Venue: at Home

Having gained confidence when facing this side in previous fixtures throughout the season, the Dulwich College team were excited by the prospect of a good home performance against Whitgift.

After a very slow start, the home side got stuck into the game, matching the oppositions physicality, if not raising the bar slightly. This resulted in a tremendous first half performance, where brilliant defence led to well taken tries. 15-10 up at half time, Dulwich College were flying.

However, this momentum was short lived as after some forced errors, Whitgift took their chances well in the second half, punishing the home side for any drop in intensity, going on to score six tries in quick succession. This was difficult to take for the players, however, a great lesson regarding the importance of staying mentally switched on throughtout a whole game.
