Match Report
Dulwich College U15D vs  Merchant Taylors' School, Northwood Boys-U15C
On: Saturday, 10 Nov 2018
Venue: at Home

In their first game back after the half-term break, DC faced their toughest opponent of the season so far -- Merchant Taylors' School.

Both teams started brightly, with strong running and hard tackles from each side making the first half an entertaining affair. DC took the lead thanks to a fine effort from Martin Scardino after a tap and go, only for MTS to almost immediately hit back with a try of their own. As the two teams huddled for half-time, the score was level at 5 apiece.

DC, however, were sluggish to open the second half, and paid a dear price. In the space of ten minutes, MTS had tacked on a further 26 points, taking full advantage of poor defensive organisation and a loss of confidence amongst the DC boys. There was to be no further scoring from either side over the rest of the half, as DC saw their attempt at an unbeaten season slip away.
