Slazenger Seconds continued their climb up the Yorkshire League Division 4 table with a well-earned victory against table topping Halifax Seconds.
In a scrappy first half, both sides cancelled each other out with spoiling tactics that prevented flowing hockey.
Although Ben Graham scored for Slazenger the game was still deadlocked at half time, 1-1.
Slazenger came out after the break more focused and determined on the job in hand, the whole side appeared to gel from the off.
Alec Gilston, back on form, scored the two goals then ultimately sealed victory with the midfielders Andy Foreman, Johnny White and Ben Graham taking control of the game.
Skipper Matt Birkett kept the momentum going but Halifax fought back to reduce the deficit to just one goal.
Cool defending from Bob Wood and man of the match Thomas Penistone in goal saw Slazenger through to a deserved victory on the back of an excellent all-round team performance.
