Match Report
St Edward's Preparatory School, Cheltenham Boys-U11A vs  Berkhampstead School
On: Wednesday, 26 Feb 2020
Venue: at Home

St Edward's (1) 1, Berkhampstead (2) 7

St Edward's unbeaten run of 10 matches, stretching back to November, came to a shuddering halt as the hosts were blown away by a very strong and physical Berkhampstead side.

It was certainly a bad day at the office for St Edward's, but Blake and James both stuck to their tasks well and never dropped their heads. But the team as a whole never played with any fluency and really struggled to cope with the physicality and the pace of the visitors.

Flynn guided home a neat equaliser but Berkhampstead were good value for their 2-1 interval lead. The turning point possibly came when Tommy smashed a penalty against the bar early in the second half shortly before the visitors scored three times in quick succession to settle the matter.

Two late goals just rubbed salt in the wounds and rounded off a resounding win for Berkhampstead.
