Match Report - 26 Oct 2019, Dunfermline City Hockey Club Dunfermline City First Team drew with Erskine SM 3s
An exciting 5pm encounter in Edinburgh. With a 15 man squad City drew with ESM 3.3.
Santi had City a goal up within 2 minutes with a reverse stick finish. Santi shortly after followed up a shot from Miller which was saved to reverse stuck home for 2 nil.
City then went 3 up when a Miller shot was kicked off the line. Rintoul converted the penalty.
ESM got a deserved goal back just before half time to make it 3.1. But City should have had the game dead and buried with numerous missed chances in a good performance.
The second half so Cromb injured with a nasty hit to the eye which resulted in us losing out central midfield dominance. He couldn't return to the play.
City lost the flow with this and allowed ESM back in the game. They scored 2 goals to make it 3.3. City then found their shape again and in the last ten minutes could and should have won it but it wasnt to be.
Good first half performance. Luff and Kinnear standing out. With Santi clinical. Second half mishaped team as a result of injury costing us all 3 points.
Next week leaders Livingston away as we look to continue out unbeaten start to the season
