Match Report
Dulwich College U14 vs  Whitgift School
On: Monday, 19 Nov 2018
Venue: at Home

In their first game after the half-term break, DC U14s showed off their immense potential before ultimately falling 31 - 36 to a strong Whitgift side.

Despite having had over a month between fixtures, DC showed few signs of rust in the early goings. Quick hands and organised defense keyed a dominant start; it wouldn't be until the sixth minute of the first quarter until Whitgift scored their first basket. The away team climbed back into the game, however, with more patient ball-handling and increased emphasis on the pick-and-roll, limiting DC's favoured fastbreak opportunities. At halftime, the score stood 17 - 19.

The visiting side jumped out to a hot start after the break, tacking on ten points before DC added to their total. Faced with a double-digit deficit entering the final frame, DC rallied admirably to cut the lead to 3 with two minutes remaining, but a final Whitgift effort staved off the comeback.
