Super Sils Score Six!

Sils went into this clash with local rivals looking forward to welcoming back the prodigal son (Dr Mo) and also look to continue their recent winning run.

With both teams sat in similar league positions, this game always had the potential to be close, and that was how the first 15 minutes played out, with Edgbaston perhaps shading it in terms of possession and circle entries. However, neither side really threatened the goals enough to significantly test their opponent's keeper, until Sils won their first PC of the game, which led to the opening goal, from a well engineered routine providing the opportunity for James Clapham to score from close range.

The Sils then shifted up a gear and started playing some of their best hockey of the season - Mark Dovey and Tom Harrison pulling the strings from the back, and all players working hard on and off the ball to create chances. The second goal came shortly after an Edgbaston midfielder had been given a 2 minute rest for clumsily trying to dispossess an accelerating Andre Tchakhotine, and whilst Dan Jones was to suffer the same fate 1 minute or so later, the Sils continued to look more threatening in an evenly balanced game in terms of possession. Where Edgbaston turned ball over in the final 1/4, Sils did not - and took two further chances before the end of the half, with Edgbaston managing a response through an expertly finished PC drag flick.

The second half continued in similar fashion to the first - ball time shared between both teams, but Sils always looking more likely to score. With the grumpy Edgbaston centre-back earning himself a green in an otherwise friendly afternoon fixture, Sils took the chance to score 2 to Edgbaston's 1, until the dying seconds of the game, with the result all but tied up, and Edgbaston able to score a further PC with the last action of the match.

3 points, a solid performance, with Mark Dovey picking up the player of the match accolade, and perhaps most telling of all, Dr Mo heard to be telling several people that he was missing the club, not really enjoying it as much at Edgbaston, and hence may well be returning sooner rather than later....

Onto next week, and an altogether different kind of opposition in Barford Tigers 2nds!
