(Brigg win on penalties)

Brigg Hockey Club Mens 1st team progressed through to the next round of the Yorkshire League Cup–A Division when they beat Driffield in high drama on Saturday.

An end to end game with no quarter asked or given saw the home side take an early lead.

Goals came at both ends with three to Brigg from irrepressible marksmen Andy Reid and Andrew Morris.

Morris notched up two, but their efforts were matched by the home side and at the end of a thrilling encounter the scores stood at 3-3.

Then it was extra time, which passed without further addition to the scoreline, and then into a penalty stroke barrage.

Brigg just made it through when the home player’s shot cannoned off the crossbar to give Brigg the narrowest of wins.

Brigg Mens 2nd beat Wakefield 3rd at Brumby Hall by 3-2 in their Division 2 match.
