17/10/20 : Mens Veterans (Cavaliers) vs Southampton Cockburns

Away - Southampton Sports Centre P2

League

Lost 2 - 7

Another defeat, but a vastly improved performance from our previous game, as we played our best hockey of the season so far.  We conceded an early goal to their fleet footed right winger, who was a thorn in our side throughout the game.  We came back strongly and equalised with our newly arrived sub's first touch of the ball, then deservedly took the lead minutes later, following a short corner.  We then conceded a soft equaliser, but looked set to go in all square at half time, only to concede in the final action of the half after a debatable (and indeed debated!) short corner.  Somewhat deflated, we conceded again just after the break, but thereafter held our own for most of the second half, until three late goals produced a final scoreline which probably flattered our opponents.
