King’s College U16 boys are through to the quarter-finals of the England Hockey Tier One National competition after beating Sherborne in a tough game.

The hosts started the game at a fast pace with some fantastic building play through the midfield, involving Sam Cobb, Charlie Spurr and Tim Roberts finding Harry Blakey in space in the D where he scored to quickly put the King’s team ahead. The home side continued to apply pressure on the Sherborne defence, with numerous circle entries and some good opportunities created by Alex Cunningham and Charlie Spurr.

The Sherborne team were relentless, working hard to find gaps. With stoppages for injuries and with two penalties awarded to King’s, James Rew and Alex Cunningham stepped up, both scoring, and keeping up the pressure.

In the final minute of the game Sherborne were awarded a penalty corner, from which they scored. However this didn't affect the result: a 3-2 win for the King's team, putting them into the national quarter-finals.
