26/09/20 : Mens 6 vs Poole 2

Home - Burnaby Road P1

League

Lost 2 - 7

Tough day for 6s against a clinical Poole 2s

After last season and a promising pre-season, expectations were high for the opening leage game.  Havant started strongly and dominated possession forcing a number fo penalty corners in the first 10 mins.  Thereafter Poole started to break the Havant press and get the ball to their forwards who were a step up from what the team were used to.  Despite Alex Bolton making a number of really good saves, Poole scored 3 goals on the break.  James Healy grabbed one back to leave it 3-1.  Havant changed formation at half time in an attempt to sure up the defence and woth 20 mins to go it was 4-2 after a good strike from a tight angle by Will Hughes.  Havant then pushed to get something out of the game and created a number of chances.  Unfortunately Poole were more clinical and ran out 7-2 winners. 

Despite the scoreline there were plenty of positives including a MoM performance from young Jude Richards.
