The mens 1s keep the pressure on the two sides above them with a win against local side Slazenger HC.

Adel were up against a combative Slazenger side, and battled throughout to create opportunities. The physical nature of the game spilled over in the remaining 10 minutes where Mayhew, and the Slaz captain were given a few moments to calm down and make amends on the sideline. Leeds Adel went into the break 2-0 up thanks to goals from Will Purdy and Andy Reid Ben Hendley.

The second half was in similar style to the first, where Slazenger’s were not letting up on the pressure denying space as best they could. Despite this Leeds Adel managed to find enough space to keep the Slaz ‘keeper involved whilst shutting out the away side limiting them to just three shots on target throughout the whole game. Penetrative runs down the right hand side from Purdy, Bayford and Watkins threatened throughout. Buller was one to finish spectacularly before Watkins added the fourth and final goal.

Man of the match: Andy Bird

Dick of the day: Jimmy Mayhew
