This weekend saw Charterhouse take on Eton College across a busy 21 match schedule where all Charterhouse football teams competed either home or away. For Charterhouse pupils, all sports fixtures against Eton are highly anticipated and competitive, and it was no different for this tournament. There were a number of very successful performances and results. The 2XI showed great determination to come out on top and seal the 3-2 victory. Strong performances were also shown across the U14 teams, most notably the A team who turned in a convincing 5-0 victory.
The draw was not kind to Charterhouse in the Boodles ISFA Cup as we faced the side who have won the HUDL league for the last two years. We started poorly and gifted Repton a 2-0 lead by playing into their hands early on. The Home side showed perseverance to respond well after the poor start and Ash Ticktum got Charterhouse back in the game with a tidy finish but we couldn’t force an equaliser to take the game into extra-time and our ISFA Cup campaign ended in Round 3.
In squash the 1st V continued their unbeaten start to the season with a very-hard fought 3-2 team win at St. Paul's, including two come-backs from 1-2 to win in the closest possible circumstances. Following this success, the U16s qualified for the next stage of the National Schools Cup with a convincing 5-0 victory over Churcher's and the U15s continued their winning form with a 4-1 team win at St. Paul's. Our 1st Team and U15A Team also came away with wins after playing against KCS Wimbledon.
Meanwhile the boys A XI hockey competed in their first indoor game of the season. A very end-to-end game unfortunately saw William Borlase come out on top with a last-minute winner to take the 5-4 victory. A very promising performance from the boys however and great preparation for their U16 and U18 National Cup.
