Lions vs Sherborne A Monday, September 29, 2008Posted by Admin in Cheltenham Hockey, Match Report, Mens 4th XI.
under a blazing mid-day sun Lansdown opened their league season…
Lans got on top and “Monster” Mash Patel smashed the ball into the roof of the net for 1-0, but Sherborne came back to lead at the break finding alarming holes in our defence for two open play goals..
after taking on board gallons of fluid and the rousing words of capt Blazey, Lansdown again started 2nd half well, Big Matt Welbone went up front and thumped in Ross Mays pass almost from the restart, then George Bence was denied by a diving keeper and Monster set up DP to go just wide
The youngsters all took turns in various positions and all did well, but Lansdown finished the game under pressure, Big Matt moved back again for the last quarter and was again the hero clearing off the line in the last few minutes, with Dinny and Big Bob they saw us through for a point, a fair result in the end.
Landsown Lions 2 – 2 Sherborne A
