Report: 08-02-2014 – Mens 3rd’s (5) vs. (0) Kingston-Upon-Hull 4th’s

Slaz 3’s travelled out to Kingston-Upon-Hulls ground looking to build on their recent run of form, and surprise goal scoring tallisman Simon Taylor looking for his 3rd in as many games (after a run of 10+ years without).

The team started brightly, winning the toss and playing with the wind at their backs for the first half. The team worked well, controlling the speed of play and retaining possession to the frustration of the opposition. However the Hull defence made it hard work for Slaz to convert the pressure into a goal.

The limited attacking play from Hull was soaked up with some great work by Alex Calderley, Byron Dean and Mark Kitchen.

It wasn’t until well in to the first half when Luke Gueli rounded the keeper and slotted the ball away to give the visitors the first break. From then on, Slaz continued to control the pitch and exert pressure on the home site. The creditable Hull defence It wasn’t to hold however; some strong work from Dan Levitt and James Walker in midfield setup Dan Moakes to put daylight between Slaz and the tiring opposition.

In the second half, Simon Taylor picked up his third in 3 games with a well executed strike (or was that a pass?). The fourth came from Ian Hedges’ reverse tomohawk from the edge of the D and Luke Gueli finished a brace with after going one-on-one with the goalie minutes before the end.

Slaz host Leeds Adel at home next week 1:30 push.
