Match Report

On a bleak and miserable day Horncastle made the journey to City of Peterborough in search of their 3rd win in a row. After a frustrating start Horncastle fell into their rhythm winning a number of penalty corners. After a Tom White flick pinged off the post on the 2nd, Nick Bennett stepped up and converted the 3rd giving Horncastle a 1-0 lead. Horncastle sustained their momentum, despite pressure from Peterborough on the break. Another Bennett flick doubled Horncastle’s advantage shortly after the first. The first half ended with Horncastle leading 2-0. Horncastle came out looking to play more clinical hockey in the second half. However, after a strong start Peterborough started to find cracks in the Horncastle defence. Peterborough clawed a goal back through a well executed penalty corner. From the restart Horncastle were back on the offence, looking to take back control of the game. A quick attack saw Bennett win, and subsequently convert, a penalty flick. Completing his hat-trick and restoring Horncastle’s 2 goal advantage. Rob Scott coolly slotted home a 4th securing the 3 points and a 3rd straight victory for the side.
