Berkshire was on the road again, and the opponent this time was Kent School who has started the season very well with a 3-0-0 unbeaten record. On paper it looked to be a great match-up, as Bears also entered the match unbeaten with a record of 3-0-1. The match did indeed prove to be very competitive as anticipated. The field itself - bumpy and with lots of grassless portions of the field - made it hard for any possession. This seemed to suit Kent as they looked to play direct throughout much of the match, but it took Berkshire a while to find their game on the field. Lots of odd bounces on the surface led to lots of turnovers for both teams, especially in the middle where there were some attempts at building possession. Kent's high pressure and ultra aggressive style of play led to lots of physical confrontations, which again detracted from the play. There were 17 fouls called against the home side and there were certainly a few more that should have been called. Berkshire was happy to walk away from the field without any serious injuries. On top of that, the game had to be stopped twice for the home team's fans who were crowding the far side line and taunting Berkshire's players throughout the match.
