HARLESTON started brightly, seeing lots of the ball but creating little as Indian Gym had all their team camped in their own half. It was however Indian Gym who looked most likely to break the dead lock as with their quick counter attacking hockey created chances giving a few early warning signs for Harleston defence.

Mid-way through the half Indian Gym broke away to win a short corner which with a well worked corner routine they scored to make it 1-0 to the home side. Harleston responded well to going a goal down with a good 10 minute spell but the chances came and went with none being taken. As half time approached Gym regained their control over the game and went in 1-0 up.

After the break it was once again Indian gym who waiting for the Harleston error before counter attacking quickly. Indian Gym struck first again increasing their lead to 2-0. This resulted in Harleston having to chase the game playing even further into the hands of gyms counter attacking hockey.
