A much faster start was eventually rewarded for Bourne Deeping thirds with a 3-1 win over Cambs Nomads seconds.
Paul Curtis struck a ferocious penalty corner shot to put Bourne Deeping deservedly ahead.
A few costly errors gifted Nomads an equaliser and the scores stayed level to the break, despite Lewis Goold terrorising down the right, and Joe Allen and Tom Everton creating chances.
After the restart, Bourne Deeping earned a penalty flick, slotted home by Pete Moisey. And Tim Kisiel made it two goals from two matches from a penalty corner to seal the win.
The Dragons’ defence of Pasqualino, Barnes and Dacre were disciplined and provided the platform for the excellent performance.
