English National League Division 1 South

Solent Devils 4 Streatham (Redhawks) 1

Admission 9-00 inc programme attendance est 230
Two weeks ago second-place Invicta were demolished 8-2 here, today another great result for the Devils against third-place Streatham.
The scoreline was rather flattering in that Devils were outshot 48-33 and netminder C.Cole and his defence had to perform heroics sometimes against a visiting side who lacked their touch in front of goal.
The game started a few mins late without the National Anthem because Streatham came out late due to 'dressing room issues'.
The first period was fairly even, Facey giving the home side the lead and Scarborough hitting the post for the Wings late on.
In the second period the visitors were slightly better and got the equaliser, but Devils went ahead again soon after to make it 2-1 at the end.
In the third period Streatham had most of the play and most of the shots but a 'bomb from the blue line' (as the announcer described it) from Lock extended the lead, and a classic break saw Facey make it 4-1, a lead they held to the end. Amazingly (with Evans as ref) the first penalty came on 43 mins, there could have been several called before this but the officials had decided no a free-flowing game. It was on that first power play (the only one the Devils had in the whole game) that Lock scored probably the decisive goal.
A very different visiting team to the one I saw before Christmas (the game notorious for the bottle-throwing by Murray after disgraceful provocation) because they have picked up the largest number of Wightlink Raiders after their demise (several of their fans here tonight), due I suspect to coach Cornish also choosing to make Streatham his base.
One other bizarre fact: four Devils players were in action yesterday for Manchester Phoenix of the EPL! Such are the Phoenix's financial troubles and such is the keenness to enable them to finish their season that they are allowed to borrow players to make up a decent-sized squad. Yesterday with the help of Solent and Oxford, they only lost 5-1 at Bracknell, tonight they had help from Bristol and Bradford and lost 3-11 to the Swindon Wildcats.




If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.
