It was a cold and rainy trip to a pitch that was impossible to find over in Harrogate with Damian driving round a kids playground to try find it. The game kicked off and the 4s started the game strong as they always do playing very attacking Hockey stunning Harrogate right from the push back. After ten minutes and still no goal finally the dead lock is broken from a greig strike from the top of the d. Once again straight onto the attack again straight after the goal which was then followed by Morris putting in a beautiful a square ball across the D to brayshaw with it being harder for brayshaw to miss than score in a open net so guess what follows……. Brayshaw hits the post something nobody else managed to do in the game. Substitute were made pretty quick as Sam couldnt keep a little kid in his pocket as followed by the end of the half. The 1st half finished 1-0. The second half began as Harrogate came out desperately wanting a goal but once again the mighty 4s managed to keep them out 4s attacking with force again. A great through ball from damian to brayshaw who was waiting at the top of the d who calmly despite the pressure rolled it past the keeper. (edit: four touches in total from S Ellis in the defensive D, first touch long ball to Greig, first touch long ball to Brayshaw then hitting the backboard! Counter-attacking at its best!) Not long after the goal Morris somehow managed to bust his eye open by hitting the ball into his own face (idiot) this then resulted in a fine for bleeding on his new shirt. The game drew to a close and the match finished 2-0 and the 4s stay mighty. Can’t forget whytock is still missing due to following a stray car to the middle of nowhere instead of the clubhouse.
A day of wins and antics.
