Basketball (1st V)

18 September – lost vs. Limehouse School (A) 34-32 | “The Wolves narrowly lost in what was a pulsating game. Sedbergh raced to a 10 point lead in the first quarter, with some outstanding shooting from Jin Nishikawa. This lead was maintained through the second and third quarters and the Wolves were cruising. There were some consistently strong performances from Ikemdi Ajaero and Kevin Gao. As well as this, Finn Baker was a colossus under the basket and the rebound king, always keeping his composure, despite the opposition literally wrestling with him on the floor at one point. A special mention must also go to Angus Woods who, in his first game for the school, scored not one but two 3 point shots with two attempts. The game looked to be comfortable but in the 4th quarter Limehouse found their scoring touch and began to sink unanswered basket after unanswered basket. At this point Sedbergh shrank slightly and began to resemble sheep in wolves clothing. The game was tied with 30 seconds to go and unfortunately Limehouse sunk the winning score. The Wolves learned a valuable lesson; that when the pressure is on, we must step up and make those crucial game winning shots. Despite the loss, the team played well and most importantly remained positive throughout and always supported and encouraged each other. We are already looking forward to the rematch in a few weeks.”

Girls U18 A/1st XI

7 September – won vs. Rugby School 1-0 (Tournament) | 18 girls travelled to Rugby to play seven twenty minute training games. After a slow start against Dean Close that saw Sedbergh go 1-0 down the girls began to compete better in the midfield and break the opponents high press. This resulted in Sedbergh having the better chances later in the game and equalising through Chess Cooke after fine work from Issy Flanagan down the right. Two well executed short corner goals from Beth Dowbiggin and two open play goals by Tash Cookson brushed Rugby B aside whilst six goals were put past Barnard Castle in the third game. A change of pitch saw Sedbergh dominate play against a well drilled and gutsy Bromsgrove but despite the lion’s share of possession and six short corners Sedbergh were unable to break the deadlock. Sedbergh found their touch in front of goal returned against Princethorpe and Newcastle Under Lyme where Chess Cooke scored her sixth goal and Tash Cookson her fifth. In the six pool games 4 were won and 2 drawn placing Sedbergh second behind Dean Close who had won 5 and drawn 1. In the third versus fourth play off Sedbergh again dominated possession and finally broke Cheltenham’s resistance with a late goal from Tash Cookson.
