Slaz 4s played their first local derby of the season against Wakefield 7th’s. The early encounters were close with chances coming for both side until Wakefield scored from a short corner to lead 1-0. Then the opponents struck again from a short to double their advantage.
Then Slaz struck just before half time to narrow the deficit through John Sykes. After an inspirational team talk at half time Slaz drew level straight after the break through a great run from Josh Dunstan to make it 2-2. Wakefield then scored again in open play to create a 3-2 lead. Then a John Sykes miss-hit shot made it 3-3 which was the final score.
It was an exceptional performance from a Slaz side which included 8 under 19’s which included a great full back pairing of Ben Stevenson and Tristan Whittle; the midfield of Harry Gunning, Chris Gascoigne and Sam Haigh operated well throughout the game.
