Tough Game for Railway

Railway travelled to Harleston to play a team without a win so far this season but came up against a much stronger side than current form might have suggested.
Railway were missing one or two players which created a few problems and meant a reshuffle of the line up and people having to play in positions they were not used to.

Harleston started the game strongly with players who were obviously used to playing at a higher level dictating the play and took an early lead. After a slow start, Railway gradually settled into the game and started to pass the ball around looking to utilise the pace of forwards Johnny Ward and John McNamara on the counter attack.
Railway briefly got back on level terms when Johnny Ward got in behind the Harleston defence to drill a ball in for Matt Payne to get a deflection into the goal.
Two more goals for Harleston quickly put Railway on the back foot again, but Matt Eagle gave the visitors hope renewed hope with a nicely placed flick from a penalty corner to reduce the deficit going into the interval.

With the game finely balanced starting the second period, Harleston took full advantage of players being sin binned for minor offences with green cards, by scoring both times Railway were down to ten men.
Railway pulled another goal back when Ollie Payne drilled the ball in from a penalty corner, but were still left chasing the game, never quite keeping up with their opponents.
