TBB Mens D returned to winning ways and went second in the table with a 4-2 win over club rivals TBB E. It was the E team that took the lead when they converted a penalty corner aftre only 10 minute. However the D team did not panic and were soon back on level terms after Sam Reeves converted their first penalty corner of the match. As the D's pressed forward they left themselves vulnerable to the break and the E team exploited this to full effect when the ball was lost in the D by the D team and was transfered quickly to the forwards who created a 3 v 1 and scored to give the E team the lead at the break.
The D team then dominated the second half and created a number fo good chances which were well saved by the E team keeper. Then quick one two between Bowman and Reeves unlocked the E team defense for Reeves to fire home his second and make it all square. More chances came an went until Parish was well found by Peden and his tomahawk shot flew in to the goal. The result was secured with 10 minues to go whwn James Lawton Smith converted another penalty corner. Man of the match went to Sam Reeves for his two goals and hitting the cross bar.
