Slazengers 4ths played Halifax 4’s on Saturday in a nail biting match. It started well for slaz with a goal from Steve Johnson giving them a 1-0 lead and providing them with the confidence they needed to make it to the end of the 1st half on top.
The glory was short lived as Halifax managed to pull it back to an even 1-1 as they made a fast break down the middle. The two teams fought it out with Slaz’s strong defence holding back the full force of the Halifax attack and the fearless Darren Buttery making tremendous saves in goal on his debut. It looked doubtfully either team would score has it came to the last 2 minutes, but then once again Steve Johnson appeared and slotted in a trickling fashion the ball in to the bottom corner of the net.
Tom Pitchforth gave a man of the match performance helping the team to the 2-1 victory.
