Men's Hampshire Division 2 October 12, 2019 - 12:30 pm


The Island 1st XI put into practice what they had learnt from their previous outing, showing that they were quick learners and able to adapt. Havant thought they’d travelled for an easy win, but the Island soon demonstrated that they weren’t just going to roll over after soaking up a lot of pressure early on. The Island against the flow of play secured their first goal after Wightlink Man of the Match Tom Turney converted a penalty corner, this was followed up with a second when Steve Woodford finished off a flowing move down the left after great build up play from Patrick Butt, Tomaz Turjanica and Joe Arnold. Havant capitalised on a loose ball late in the first half to pull one back, but they were clearly rattled. The third goal came after Tom Turney latched onto the ball after beating the keeper, rounding him calmly to put the Island in a commanding position going into the second half. The Island then put in 35 minutes of hard work and a sterling team effort which was rewarded when Tom Turney got his hat-trick after the island built from the back with slick passing from Lewis Heaven-Gandy, Peter Wright and Alex Breach. Havant finally reached boiling point when they had two players sent off in quick succession for dissent. The Island had done sufficient damage in the first half and held firm for the remainder of the match despite some of the squad suffering a few blows from the ball.
