Report from Prescot Hockey Club.
Prescot started 2018 with a bang against near neighbours St Helens. On paper it looked a simple home win for high flying Saints but Prescot had other ideas. From the off Prescot took the game to their opponents with some excellent hold up play from youngsters Wade and Barrowclough. Prescot forced a couple of short corners that were squandered before Foy broke into the D and a deflected shot hit the roof of the net. St Helens pressured the the defence however Heyes, Collins and Johnson held firm to break up attack after attack.
Heaps then fired a ball into Holmes who spun 180 degrees and buried the goal to make it two nil. Prescot were in dreamland but St Helens are not second in the league for nothing and hit back immediately to make it 1-2 at half time.
Saints piled the pressure on in the second half and as Prescot tired a great run saw an excellent goal scored. With minute remaining Prescot were reduced to ten players for indiscipline and then a 'goal' for St Helens was chalked off for a foot.
In the end a draw was a fair result
