Mens 1 V City Of York 4

Mens 1 V City Of York 4

Acomb mens 1 travelled to York University for an early start against pointless City of York 4. The hosts started the better and took advantage in the 4th minute which was doubled when their forward line was gifted a miss hit restart after 20 minutes and were prevented gaining further advantage by a fine stick save by tangerine keeper Craig Brown. The tangerines were denied when a late whistle prevented James Tindall’s reverse strike past the home keeper being rewarded for an earlier infringement by the York defence and Nick Linfoot’s penalty corner strike was correctly disallowed for a slight height problem. Rocked but not dispirited the tangerines came out strongly and took the game to the hosts. With man of the match Stuart Baxter reverting to sweeper the visitors took control and pulled a goal back after 20 minutes when an overlapping Baz Whitfield found Carrick Blacker who slotted home easily. Within 5 minutes the tangerines were level when Dave Richardson’s effort was deflected by a home defender past the York keeper. Richardson had opportunity to take the lead but infringed when the ball struck his leg but eventually with 3 minutes remaining York pinched the three points in this local derby.
