Yesterday saw Tiverton host the league leaders & local rivals
Exeter & Culm Vale Hornets. As well as being a hockey match it was a chance for players on both sides to meet old friends & team mates.
In what was to be a fantastic example of league hockey Tiverton made first impact with a goal from close range by Will King on 17 minutes, Hornet replied in the 22nd minute with a well executed drag flick by Euan Tinley from a penalty corner.
With the game flowing from end to end but was Tiverton who once again took the lead with another close range finish this time by Cameron Main on 29 minutes. But with half time approaching Hornets drew level with a shot from a tight angle going in at the far post & so the half finished 2-2.
The second half continued in the same manner with both sides attacking with speed & defending resolutely to make the game an epic excellent one to watch & despite both sides having opportunities to score neither could deliver the divisive blow with the game ending 2-2.
Tiverton would like to thank Hornets for a fantastic game played in the true spirit of Hockey & congratulate them on winning the league & being promoted.
