National Cup

1st XI v Wells Cathedral School - lost 1 - 2

"Summer returned to greet the U18 Girls' hockey trip to Wells Cathedral in the National Cup," said Mr Skinner.

"We had met our opponents in a tournament at the start of the season, when Wells displayed some quick and effective hockey. Exeter began with training ground precision, pressing Wells' defenders and creating many problems.

"Unfortunately, the pressure could not be converted to goals. Wells gained a foothold in the game and finally broke through to score before half time. A second goal followed. This seemed to give Exeter some impetus.

"Again good pressure on the Wells' outlets brought errors and goal opportunities. A goal came from Anna Starling at a penalty corner. Now the game was interesting.

"A change of attacking shape was not handled well by our opponents, though the gamble meant Exeter had to survive some counter attacks. Exeter forced some good goal scoring chances in the final minutes, but just could not force the tie to penalties."

Ms Lunn said: "A very enjoyable contest, well done girls."

Thursday 11 October 

U19 Exeter Round of the National Schools' Tournament

"The U19 team played some excellent netball in all of their games. They were the only side to score against an extremely strong Exeter College team who dominated the tournament," said Mr Mason.

"The team finished third equal with a draw against The Maynard in their final match."


Football

Wednesday 10 October

1st XI v Colyton Grammar School - lost 2 – 4 (Rob Stoyle, Ben Harvey)

"Conceding a sloppy goal after only a minute wasn’t the best way to start the new season!" said Mr Ashman.

"Added to that, we struggled to get the basics right in the first half and were quite glad to only go in at the break with only a two goal deficit. A tactical change at half-time and a refocusing of minds contributed to us growing into the game in the second half.

"To all intents and purposes, we had the better of things after the break and played some progressive football, creating a few decent chances. Unfortunately, we still conceded soft goals and, at one stage, we were 4 – 0 down!

"However, the lads showed great resilience and we scored two very good goals in the latter stages. This team is keen to play on the front foot, which is admirable, but we will have to work very hard from a defensive perspective, if we are to gain the results we all crave for.

"The focus for next week at Queen’s will be on effective recovery runs. A special mention to Aaron Tucker, who looked a real threat all match, with a consistent desire to take on defenders and create openings."

Golf

Wednesday 10 October

Exeter School’s golf team beat Blundell’s 3 - 0 in the first round of the HMC Foursomes Golf Competition.

Mr Wilcock said the headline victory was a resounding 7 and 6 win for Sam Corney and Tom Peters.

"Ben Reynolds and Louis Hayman won 3 and 1 and Fred Bishop and Jack Parry won their match on the last hole.

"The team will now play the winners of the Sherborne and King’s Taunton fixture," said Mr Wilcock.
