Kings hold on to win
8:00pm Thursday 21st February 2013 in Sport
TEN man Kingswinford Hockey Club survived a second-half onslaught to beat Droitwich 4-2.
Kings were cruising to victory against the league’s bottom side before Bal Lally red card in the second period.
Earlier, Colin Morris had given them the perfect start with a strike in the opening 30 seconds.
Two goals quickly followed, as Adam Pritchard slammed home after beating two defenders, before Guneet Uppal pounced on a loose ball to score.
When Gary Oates drag flicked a shot into the top corner to make it 4-0 before the break, a convincing win looked certain.
But Lally’s dismissal for dissent changed the game’s dynamic and Droitwich began a fightback.
They found Kings keeper Tim Sanders in superb form and despite pulling two goals back, the hosts were able to hold on.
