Lansdown Vets v Newent Vets Friday, October 6, 2006Posted by Admin in Cheltenham Hockey, Field Hockey, Match Report, Vets.
Lansdown started the game sluggishly and quickly conceded two goals from a
lively Newent attack ably supported as always by their midfield dynamo
“Buzz”. Eventually the Lansdown side got into their rhythm and got back in
the reckoning with goals from Dave Holdaway and Andy Allen, although several
other chances went begging. The second half saw more goals from both teams
with Newent levelling the match twice before Lansdown’s fitness and
midfield dominance paid off with a final score of 6-4. Lansdown scorers were
Hugh Gladman, Mark Williams, Dave Holdaway for his second and Rob Hall with
a pile driver short corner strike.
