Hockey: Addiscombe fall to Priory
Addiscombe Mens 2s 1
Reigate Priory Mens 2s 2
Only two fixtures escaped the freezing waether and Addiscombe Seconds came into this tough fixture with a strong side but ended up losing 2-1 to third-placed Reigate Priory.
Reigate started at great pace putting the Addiscombe goalkeeper Davis and defenders Clark, Clarke, Oubridge and Jones under pressure.
But Reigate never managed to completely expose keeper Davis with Oubridge and Ian Hadland, who came back to help from midfield putting in strong performances.
The second half saw Addiscombe coming back and putting some pressure on Priory, but skipper D'Costa's fourth foul saw him yellow carded and Reigate finally fashioned an opening to go 2-1 ahead. Addiscombe responded well, and had a Miller shot cleared off the line and were putting some pressure on
the Reigate defence towards the end.
The only other game was the ladies 2s who put in a fine performance to draw 0-0 with high-flying Croydon MOs 2S. They were unlucky to come away with only one point.
