3rd XI vs Crawley 1 (Away) | 17 Oct 20

Lost 6-3

Scorers: C Podd x3

MoM: Leo Norwood

DoD: Matt Lea


Canterbury 3s got off to the worst possible start, going 2:0 down within the opening ten minutes. And 5:1 down at halftime.

Morts gave some much needed defensive advice at the break and the boys showed good character to win the second half.

Matt Lea turned provider, offering up three assists for the prolific Podolski, and at 5:3 the game was up from grabs. However, a number of half-chances wouldn’t quite fall favourably and Crawley scored a counter attacking goal at the death to win 6-3 after Matt Lea had picked up a yellow card for tackling cleanly- the umpires were shocked too.

Special mentions to Dave Sharp who probably wasn’t expecting to play the best part of an hours hockey and Leo Norwood who was a real engine in midfield.

Holcombe 3s at home on AW1 11:15 this Saturday.
