The mens 1st team had a tough encounter with high flying Lindum 2nds, a strong physical team with a good run of form. Slaz started well brightly, with some good passing play and high pressing. However, Lindum defended well, and the game was well balanced for the first 20 minutes. It was Matthew Stacey who broke the deadlock, with a solo effort; breaking through the visitors defence and coolly slotting the ball past the keeper. This was followed up before the break with a penalty flick sealed by Richard Tuddenham.
In the second half, the visitors came out harder and more physical than before, netting a goal in response. The last 10 minutes were a tough defensive exercise for the Horbury side, as they held onto their slim margin.
Next week the 1st’s travel to Airdale, hoping to keep their run of form going.
