Once again, Slazenger’s seconds were left disappointed after a poor performance going down 2-1 away to Halifax seconds. A result that leaves them rooted firmly to the bottom of the table. The story of the season continued with Slazenger’s playing some great hockey but then letting themselves down with individual errors and a lack of ability to dig deep when needed.
The game started with Slazenger’s playing some good hockey but found themselves caught out midway through the first half going a goal down. Then, Slazenger’s began to pick up their play, Ted Richardson equalising with a great reverse stick strike.
The second half was much the same with Slazenger’s playing good stuff only to let themselves down in the final third of the game with Halifax grabbing a late winner from a well worked short corner routine. Slazenger’s will have to dig deep in the coming games to reverse what has been a poor start to the season for them.
