Slazenger 2nd’s dissapointing run continued with their fourth defeat in five losing 6-2 away to Halifax.
The Horbury team had to play the entire game with 10 men after suffeing a number of injuries the previous week.
And it was the visitors who took a deserved lead with Nick Webb finishing off a nice move.
Using their extra man it came as no suprise when Halifax equalised before half time.
After the break Slazenger played some of their best hockey of the season and Jonny White gave them the lead after some unselfish work from Rich Hutchins.
But the 10 men Horbury began to tire and the home side ran in four goals in the last 10 minutes to finish with a score that did not show a true reflection of the game. There is no fixture this week.
