Sedbergh have lost their hold on a third successive SOCS Daily Mail Schools Trophy.
A 16-5 defeat at Millfield not only ruined hopes of a third title but ended a remarkable winning run of 46 games for the all-conquering Cumbrian school since November 2016.
Sedbergh's slip up hands a title chance to leaders Cranleigh, who host Canford on Saturday, or second-placed Wellington who play at Tonbridge.

Third-placed Epsom, who meet St John's Leatherhead, also have a chance but need the top two to falter.
Calculators may well be needed to separate Cranleigh, who head the table on an average merit points of 6.60 per game, and Wellington, 6.43, in this national competition sponsored by SOCS, the school management system.
