Bourne Deeping Hockey Club’s Men’s 1sts unbeaten at home
Bourne Deeping Men’s 1sts kept their perfect record at the Dragons Den intact on Saturday with a 4-0 victory over visiting Bishops Stortford 1sts.
The Dragon’s Men’s 1sts previous encounter with Bishops Stortford had resulted in a sloppy defeat that the home side did not want a repeat of.
The Dragons started strongly, pressing well and it wasn’t long before a goalmouth scramble fell to Tom Richardson, which he flicked into the net, 1-0. They carried on pressing, continually threatening and breaking down the away defence and a few short corners later a Biggs drag-flick was dispatched into the left hand side of the net, doubling the lead.
Bourne Deeping seemed to take their foot of the gas after this and the away side started to get some chances of their own.
Various chances went begging, and a couple of strokes of luck saw two open goals passed up by the visitors before half-time.
The game opened up after half-time and some exciting end to end hockey took place but with no final product.
Finally the home team once again broke through, with Andy Williams deflecting a short corner past the goalkeeper and just inside the post to make it 3-0.
The home team used this as a boost and more attacks fell on Bishops Stortford. Tom Everton found his way down the baseline, pulling the ball back for Stuart Biggs to tap in.
More attacks took place, but there were no more goals.
