Kenton away - 12 Feb 2000
Purley started slowly and Kenton took an early lead with some of
Purley defenders getting stuck in the mud. But Purley settled down towards the
end of the quarter to level the score at 2 - 2.
The second quarter was a different matter. The Purley defence started to
talk to each other and Kenton found it hard to create chances. The midfield
also stepped up a gear with Mike Barrett, Matt Payne and Graeme Holland
dominating their opponents. The quarter ended 6 - 3.
The third quarter was much like the first with Kenton piling on the pressure
but they only scored once even though they created a few chances. The third
quarter ended 6 - 4.
Purley had dominated the face-offs all day (only losing 4 in the whole game)
and this was the key to the start of the fourth quarter. Purley scored 3
quick goals and from this point the game was safe. The game ended with a
sign that it truely was Purley's day with Graeme Holland scoring against
Simon Savage from distance!
Final score 13 - 5.
Tim Richmond 4 goals, Dave Arnot 3 goals 2 assists, Darren Novell 2 goals 5 assists,
Graeme Holland 2 goals 1 assist, Mike Barrett 1 goal 2 assists, Scott Nichols 1 goal.
