Mens 2 V Harrogate 5

Mens 2 V Harrogate 5

Acomb men’s 2 travelled to take on fellow promotion battlers Harrogate 5. The match started when with 2 minutes gone the game turned into a blizzard directly into the tangerine faces and the hosts struck to take the advantage of this and in the 8th minute opened the scoring from a penalty corner. Harrogate continued to press forward with a barrage of penalty corners which missed the mark or were kept out by some sound defensive work. Eventually the hosts broke free in open play getting past Acomb’s defence leaving keeper Richard Crossland helpless and doubling their advantage. After 20 minutes the hosts were awarded 2 penalty corners in concession the first went wide but the second gave them a three goal lead. At the start of the second half the tangerines came out strong but within minutes the hosts got their 4th goal and despite this set back the tangerines continued to fight back having some chances but they were thwarted by the Harrogate’s keeper. In 21st minute Acomb’s skipper Jonny Brown scored to reduce the deficit for the tangerines but the visitors couldn’t make any further headway and were thankful for a double save in the last minute by keeper Crossland leaving Harrogate top of Division 5 North and Acomb level on points with Bingley Bees whom they met this coming weekend.
