Mens 2 V Boston Spa 3

Acomb men’s 2 played host to Boston Spa 3 with the game beginning with the tangerines the strongest side running through Boston Spa. The first major action brought a good save from Acomb’s keeper Richard Crossland from a Boston Spa penalty corner. The scoring was opened in the 15th Minute by Acomb’s skipper Jonny Brown when he scored by smashing the ball into the narrow space between the keeper and the near post. In a very level first half with the game continuing end to end until in the final minute at a penalty corner when the visiting keeper saved the initial shot only for man of the match Andy Smith to latch onto the loose ball and lift it into the back of the net. The second half was a different affair with the tangerines in control and when Smith’s pass found Jonny Brown who slotted it into the back of the net to give a bit of a safety zone. Boston Spa’s work effort was rewarded finally when they managed to get past the tangerines defence and score but the tangerines pulled further ahead with Smith second. With no time to organize Acomb flooded forward and within a minute were awarded another penalty corner which again the visiting keeper did well to a glove to the ball but the rebound fell nicely to Tom Brown to net the hosts fifth. In the last few minutes of the game Smith’s attempt to get his hat trick was thwarted by Boston Spa’s keeper but found its way to Martin Grainge whose shot went straight into the back of the net to leave the tangerines 6-1 winners and still in second place in Division 5 North with an important game on Saturday away against leaders Bingley Bees 1.
