Barrass boost for Slaz’
SLAZENGER U10s had a mixed bag of results at the Huntington tournament near York at the weekend.
Their first opponents Rotherham started strongly, but Ralph Toon kept their attackers at bay with some excellent defensive play until halfway through the encounter when they took a decisive lead.
In the second game, Driffield raced into a 2-0 lead, but the timely introduction of sub Daniel Perry changed things.
He soon found the back of the net and from then on, it was one-way traffic with Slaz rewarded with an equaliser off the stick of Jake Barras.
The third game against Chapeltown proved to be a scrappy affair, with the Sheffield side claiming a fortunate 2-0 success.
Slaz eased past Ben Rhydding C 3-0, with a hat-trick from hero Barras.
A flurry of substitutions proved to be Slaz’s downfall in their final game as they were crushed 6-0 by a rampant Kirklees outfit.
