East League Division 3NW
Eley 1sts 2
Horncastle Men’s 1sts 3
Horncastle Hockey Club’s Men’s Firsts secured a 3-2 win at Eley.
As expected, the first half was evenly balanced until a breakaway goal gave Eley the lead.
Horncastle came back strong and a well-worked move between Seymour and Bee resulted in the latter slipping through the defence like an eel to coolly beat the keeper.
After a strong half time talk from skipper Scott, Horncastle started the second half well, Bennett’s reverse strike putting them in front.
Another breakaway goal from Eley made it 2-2 before, in the dying seconds of the game, Bennet scored from a short corner to make it 3-2 to Horncastle.
C. Partridge was named the man of the match for Horncastle.
