Evergeens’ keeper in good form
Lowestoft Railway 3, Evergreens 2
HOCKEY: Evergreens were expecting this to be a tough match following Lowestoft’s domination in Division One last season, which earned them their promotion to the Premier Division.
Evergreens dominated the first five minutes and were rewarded with an early goal from Sam Turner with a tricky reverse-stick finish.
Evergreens then temporarily lost two players through injury which allowed Lowestoft to take control of the game.
Lowestoft’s first goal came from a short corner mid-way through the first half. The initial shot deflected off a defender and looped over the keeper into the back of the net. Their second goal came just before the break to make it 2-1 at half-time.
