March 2014: Marsh National Schools' Championships - U15s reach the quarter-final stage

Mark Williams reports:

 

57 pairs from 14 schools entered this competition. The 2013 Under 14 competition quarter-finalists are not allowed to play, nor are any other pairs entering a lower age tournament in 2014.

 

For the first time, 4 pairs were seeded out to the quarter-final stage; Shrewsbury (7), Eton (4), High Wycombe (4), St Olave's (3), Berkhamsted (3), and Harrow (3 + 2 seeded out) were the schools with most pairs in the second round. High Wycombe 2 had a good second round win against Mill Hill 1, coming from behind, and High Wycombe 3 achieved a notable success against a good Emanuel 1 pair.

 

In the third round there were impressive wins for Harrow 4 against Eton1 coming from behind over 5 games, and Harrow 3 against the talented girls of Highgate 3, and Eton 2 did well to beat High Wycombe 2 in four games.

 

All four fourth round matches were of a high standard for this level, and included at least one close game. Berkhamsted 1, High High Wycombe 1 and St Olave's 1 all won impressively in straight games and Shrewsbury1 came back strongly having lost the first game to Eton 2. These four pairs will now play Harrow 1 & 2 and Highgate 1 & 2 in the quarter-finals, and the seeds will need to play well to overcome them.
