Slaz set off guns blazing to get a win after losing to Normanby Park in the first half of the season, however came away with the first loss of the new year.
Slaz midfielders ran the game which meant Slaz were constantly in the opposition half, but the Normanby side aren’t top of the league for no reason, they defended hard and kept pressure on the Slaz forwards.
However Slaz created chances throughout the first half and were able to put a lot of pressure on the keeper, forcing him to pull off some good saves.
Man of the match Jack Kitchen had another excellent game at right half and produced exceptional tackling and passing. Both Ben Graham and Steve Roberts had great performances and played out of their usual positions for large amounts of the game.
Normanby had a couple of good breaks to create some chances and scored a very good goal to leave Slaz continuing to fight for the game (a reverse tomahawk from the edge of the “D”). Slaz pressed until the last minute, but were still unable to put the ball in the back of the goal.
Slaz still sit in second place as they travel away to Chapeltown next week.
