Ban­bridge suf­fer pain as goals count dou­ble

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RACING -

EUROHOCKEY League tour­na­ment rules ex­ag­ger­ated the lop­sided look to the score­line as un­der­strength Ban­bridge crashed to 6-0 de­feat by Poz­nan in Barcelona.

The Poles were just one up at the break af­ter con­vert­ing a penalty cor­ner but, with goals from open play count­ing dou­ble, they seized the ini­tia­tive.

Scores by Michal Poltaszewski and Do­minik Ko­tul­ski put them out of sight even be­fore Pawel Bratkowski signed off with his sec­ond cor­ner.

Bann must now pick them­selves up for a crack to­day against top Bel­gian side Rac­ing Brus­sels who have Ire­land’s Conor Harte in their squad.

Back home, Trin­ity’s freshly pro­moted women recorded their first ever win in the EY Hockey League as they de­feated Pem­broke Wan­der­ers 2-1 with the stu­dent scores com­ing from Erica Markey and Sally Camp­bell.
