Stevenage M1’s v Luton M1’s.
Even spoils in a back and forth match and another hat trick in the bag for Aiden Parker.
Luton arrived at Nobel with a numerical advantage.
The opposition hit the ground running, grabbing 2 quick goals to go 2 up. Luckily for Stevenage there was still a lot of hockey to be played, and with a lot of Stevenage hockey to played means goals are there for the taking.
Parker grabbed the first with a drag flick, nailed to side netting.
Luton restored their 2 goal lead shortly after.
Stevenage then sured up their defence marshalled by Andy Davies and some solid tendy work from Zammo.
Luke Wilkinson pounced on a short corner rebound to grab SHCs 2nd. And we know what that means..... The comeback was on. Mike Oliver played his advantage well tucking a sweet reverse into the bottom corner to continue his scoring form from midfield. Three a piece at the half.
Luton got the first goal of the second half. Stevenage responded with Some great midfield play with captain Jack Scott making sure Stevenage remained in the match... Stevenage got their 4th, Parker pressing the defender wining the ball, and driving the line. Fooling everyone including the goal keeper he tucked a reverse flick into the bottom corner, getting clattered in the process.
Stevenage went on the hunt for a winner and it looked like A. Parkers hat trick goal was the winner. A nice drag after another press into the bottom corner.
It wasn't, Luton got the equaliser from an upgraded short corner in the last minute of the match. They made no mistake and tucked away the penalty flick.
