Bracknell Game Summary

Devils narrowly miss out at Bracknell by a single goal, Bracknell taking the win 2-1, bringing the Devils 14 game winning streak to an end.

The Devils goal came from #10 Alex Trendall assisted by #3 Mitch Murray and #5 Mark Pitts.

In the final 2 minutes and 24 secs of the game both teams had a man put in the penalty box, so the Devils pulled the goalie and added an extra attacker playing 5 against 4 and then 6 on 5 once the penalty ended, then, for what seemed the longest 24 seconds the team gave every ounce of effort that was left, but to no avail.

Speaking after the game Head Coach Alex Murray said…

“I’m disappointed with the result as I felt we had the better of them in the last two periods. But credit to Bracknell who got the win and defended with their lives at the end. We won’t give up on the league yet, and hopefully we can bounce straight back next weekend.”
