ACOMB Hockey Club Men I were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Kingston-upon-Hull II in Yorkshire Hockey division one.

The Tangerines started well with forays down both flanks and chances almost fell to Jamie Robinson and James Tindall.

It was not until halfway through the first half that the breakthrough came with Tom Brown netting from close range.

Ten minutes after the restart, the game took a turn when Hull were awarded a disputed penalty stroke which they netted to draw level.

However, following some alleged back-chat, the Tangerines were reduced to 10 men for 10 minutes.

Hull went on the offensive, but some last-ditch saves by Craig Brown prevented the visitors taking the lead.

Acomb had some chances late in the second-half, but Nick Linfoot and Jonny Brown just could not get the final touch accurate.

Robinson went closest, striking an upright with a fierce shot.

Acomb II brought their ‘A’ game for a 3-1 derby win over City of York V in division four north.

The Tangerines started the game quickly, gaining an early lead from a wide run by captain Anthony Daley, who got the cross in for Matt Besford to slot home.

Harry Ellis then got two goals to his name. The first came from a short corner, received at the top of the ‘D’, and he silkily swerved the defensive runners to slip the ball into the net. The second followed shortly after with good link-ups between Harry, brother Sam, and John Forecast.

After a strong first half, the Tangerines began to tire and York pressed on and scored after a short-corner scuffle in the ‘D’.

Pressure from both sides saw no further goals in the game and Acomb were able to see out their first win of the season.

Acomb Ladies remain top of Yorkshire Women’s League division two after second-placed Spen Valley pulled out of the fixture late mid-week,under coronavirus regulations.

This week they were due to play Sheffield Hallam III but fixtures for Tier 3 against Tier 2 are not possible under England Hockey rules so they will have to wait until next month for their next outing.
