Thank you to all parties involved.
Following a hard season in Division 1 of the Herts League Dunstable produced an outstanding 2nd half come back against Spalding to win 8-6.
Spalding were quick out the block to score 2 in the first quarter the first within 20 seconds and we found the tights marking difficult to make anything happen in front of goal. 2nd quarter saw Spalding extend the lead to 5-1.
3rd quarter saw some great one on one saves by Dunstable’s keeper and the successfull conversion of all 3 man up opportunities to bring the score right back to 4-5.
4th quarter started with an outrageous lob to draw level and then an outside shot to take the lead. Confusion at the back and a sending out in saw Spalding draw level but hard work in the pit saw Dunstable take the lead again. What followed was 4 mins of back and forth before a final goal in the 7th min to take the game out of reach.
Well done to all who played.
