The Trust sponsored Bath & Wilts Schools District team ventured to Taunton on Friday night and showed great character to come from behind to progress to the next round.
The joy of missing the last lesson of the day was forgotten as the boys in blue found themselves 31 down within 10 minutes of leading 1-0 through Leo. A combination of errors at the back and a bit of naivety in possession in the first 2 thirds allowed Taunton to take control of the game.
However, a shift of focus at half time seemed to ignite more determination and gave the Bath team a plan to turn the game. Leo scored another three goals in succession to give Bath the lead and then Tom E finished off a lovely team move to ensure that Bath went through to the next round. A few injuries dampened the mood slightly, but the second half performance meant the bus journey home was ‘spirited’.
