PROGRESSIVE hockey ensured Slazenger Boys U12s’ second tournament of the season proved a much more encouraging experience.
Slazenger won their opening match against York B with Jack Kitchen sinking the only goal.
The second game was a much tougher affair against a technically superior Chapeltown side.
After conceding two early goals, Slazengers came storming back into the game with Isaac Fisher grabbing a goal and putting the Chapeltown side onto the back foot.
Injuries to Jake Barras and playmaker Danny Perry in the third game led to a 5-0 reversal at the hands of Harrogate.
Slazenger lost out 2-0 to Thirks in their penultimate encounter.
And in the final match, Slazenger were down to five outfield players who, despite tiring, managed several excellent attempts on the opposition goal.
