Round-up of all the East League action from Bourne Deeping Hockey Club
A second successive long trip again failed to bring any reward for Bourne Deeping as they were beaten 5-1 by Brentwood in Saturday’s East League Division One clash.
The long drive and a relatively short warm-up didn’t help Bourne Deeping get off to the best of starts with Brentwood’s strong early attacking intent resulting in an own goal as Andrew Kind could only bat the ball into his own net attempting to clear a shot that had ricocheted up off keeper Portlock.
Brentwood were playing a high pressing game which resulted in several turn-overs that led to a short corner in which it hit Graham Brewer's foot on the line. The umpires blew for a penalty flick which was converted into a goal despite Portlock's diving attempt.
