Boston Spa 1-3 Brigg
BRIGG Hockey Club men’s 1st team made the long journey to Boston Spa and took time to settle.
They took the lead through Andrew Dixon who managed to convert a short corner after good work by Andy Reid. Brigg added a second with an opportunist goal from Andy Reid.
Boston Spa pressed after this and started to make chances of their own, but to no avail.
As half time grew closer, Brigg had control of the game and retained the ball well, however with one wayward pass after a heavy tackle on Harry Cadwallader, Boston Spa, managed to break away and score a goal somewhat against the run of play.
Half time came, and following some intense motivational words from the Brigg skipper, Andrew Dixon, Brigg went out to put the game to bed.
Brigg managed to keep the pressure on and earned another short corner, despatched again by Andrew Dixon, this time following a huge deflection from an advancing defender’s hand, which caused the ball to loop up and over the keeper, only to land on a ducking defender on the line and fall onto the backboard.
