Mens 2nd XI - Report
|Banbury 3's||2||vs||2||Bracknell 2's|
Bracknell take second half control
A first half best forgotten prevented Bracknell from achieivng a win they were more than capable of, as they could only draw away to Banbury in MBBO division five.
knell that was the one bright spot in an otherwise dismal first period. Banbury soon regained the lead, and the half time score was 2 1 to the hosts.
Having been reminded by captain Tom Withey in no uncertain terms of the way they should be playing hockey, Bracknell improved in the second half. It still wasn't their best, but it was good enough to get back in the game. Winning a succession of short corners, Adrian Plant received the ball, and slipped it right to Richard Jones, who crashed the ball in to the goal.
Despite winning more penalty corners, the winning goal evaded Bracknell. A point gained or two points lost? The import of this result may not be known until the end of the season.
