Slazengers mens 2nd team suffered their 2nd defeat of the season going down 1-0 to a well drilled York Uni outfit. Straight from the off, York set a high press and put Slazengers defence under pressure however the defence held out well and in truth, James Cowden in the Slazengers goal was rarely troubled.
Slazengers tried to play a passing game and in spells did so very well and created space to attack but just lacked that final touch in the York ‘D’. York broke the deadlock just before half time when their attacker lost his man in the ‘D’ to tap into an open goal after a good attack down the right.
The 2nd half saw Slazengers match a much young university side for pace and fitness across the pitch limiting Yorks chances to a couple of speculative shots which were easily defended. However the York defence also held out well although Simon Chamberlain did hit the York crossbar late on.
Matt Green took the man of the match award for Slazengers who will be travel to Scarborough on Saturday looking to get back to winning ways.
