Temple Challenge Cup

This evening the 2nd VIII faced Imperial College (containing Henry Goodier OE), a selected crew in what is proving to be a very competitive Temple Challenge Cup this year. If you are in Henley over the next three days, there should be many close races and fast times to come in this event. Anyway, back to today, it was always going to be a tall order, and Imperial moved steadily out to a lead of around 4 lengths before reducing their rate of striking. The 2nd VIII rowed well, posting a faster time than yesterday (6.47), and closed to just over a length at the line. It was a dignified end to what has been an excellent season for these boys.
