Pelicans 2s 2-2 Magpies Mens 4s

Magpies Mens 4th XI suffered a rare case of player shortages this weekend and with 6 changes and an away form that to date is less than convincing this was always going to prove a difficult match.

However Magpies managed to get into a 2 – 0 lead with goals either side of half time and looked good for their first away win of the season. Duncan Stevens scored Magpies first, recalled to action late in the week and Dan Legg added a superb second beating the keeper with a rising shot from the top of the D. Craig Snelling deserved to make it three but was denied by an outstanding save by the Pelicans goal keeper.

However Pelicans fought back and two rare slips in defence gave Pelicans scoring opportunities which and they took and with Pelicans finishing strongly Magpies held on for the draw.
