Slazengers mens 2nd team put in a strong performance on Saturday running out comfortable 8-2 winners against Lindum Mens 4’s. Slazengers started strongly and took the lead when quick thinking by Matt Stacey resulted in him taking a quick free hit to himself, driving into the circle and firing home. Lindum weren’t happy with the original free hit and were soon doubly disappointed as Stacey grabbed his second finishing a good team move. Simon Randall making his first appearance of the season got on the score sheet as did Daz Buttery finishing neatly at the back post.
Lindum pulled one back but it was Slazengers who continued to press, playing good hockey throughout and pressing Lindum at every opportunity. Buttery got his second following good work down the right and then Stacey completed his hat trick just before the break.
The second half saw Slazengers slow a little thinking the job was done allowing Lindum to get a 2nd. Slazengers picked up their intensity again with Matt Stacey grabbing his fourth with an excellent reverse stick strike and Ben Graham completing the scoring. Matt Stacey took the man of the match award for Slazengers.
