Slazenger’s third team entered this quarter final clash against Huddersfield, with confidence, after a resounding victory in the previous round, a confidence that was well founded and resulted in Slazenger’s coming away 4-0 victors.
The game began with both sides playing some strong hockey but it was Slazenger’s who opened the scoring through a Richard Hutchins penalty flick after the Huddersfield keeper had illegally shielded the ball. Although many more chances were created, this was the only goal of the first half.
The second half was all Slazenger’s with James Walker creating chance after chance with some great play down the right. Ben Graham eventually grabbing the second goal with a solid strike from distance.
Slazenger’s continued to dominate with Carr adding a third and Walker grabbing the goal that his performance deserved.
This was a great display and will give Slazenger great confidence going into the semi finals of a cup competition they surely have a great chance of winning.
