BOXING: Battling Chloe beaten in final
7:40am Saturday 21st December 2013 in Sport
BERINSFIELD’S Chloe Gorringe was edged out in the final of the National Schoolgirls’ Championships.
Gorringe lost on points to two-time champion Melissa Hall (Everton Red Triangle ABC) in the class 3 1998 under 48kg final at Brentwood ABC, Essex, after a terrific battle.
Although Gorringe tried to stay on the front foot, it was the experience of Hall that proved crucial, but both fighters received a terrific reception when the decision was announced.
Gorringe reached the final after a nail-biting majority verdict over Georgia Simeone (Paddy Johns ABC) in the semi-final at Oxford’s Kassam Stadium.
