Slazengers Mens 2nd team continued their recent good form with a 2-1 victory over Ben Rhydding 4’s and although the win was deserved, the match was far from a classic. Slazengers started well controlling possession and moving the ball to create openings but rarely troubled the Rhydding keeper early on. In fact it was Ben Rhydding who took the lead midway through the first half.
Slazengers quickly responded however when a quick switch through midfield saw Simon Chamberlain feed Ben Graham who played a telling ball for Matt Stacey to finish. Slazengers continued to press and took the lead when Ben Graham converted another successful short corner routine for Slazengers to lead 2-1 at the break.
The 2nd half saw both sides struggle in the heat, Slazengers went close on a number of occasions but couldn’t find the two goal cushion they were looking for and when Rhydding cam forward, the Slazengers defence were quick to close down any attacks. Slazengers visit Bradford Uni on Saturday hoping to avenge a defeat suffered earlier in the season.
