Banbridge suffer pain as goals count double
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.
