Match report

East Grinstead and Monkstown shared a fast-paced draw in
what looks an extremely well matched EHL Pool D Round 1, tying 1-1 in the
second game of the day.
The English side took a first quarter lead when the superb
David Condon and Joe Naughalty combined to win a penalty stroke in the 13th
minute, Condon receiving a push in the build-up. Simon Faulkner converted from
the penalty spot.
They clung on to that lead for a long time as Patrick Smith
and his corner defence kept out a series of penalty corners – seven in total –
while they also defended smartly.
Indeed, from one corner they almost countered to get a
second only to see Niall Stott’s bouncing effort scooped off the line by a
diving defender.
But the equaliser came with 12 minutes to go when Kyle Good
drove straight down the middle of the EG defence and pumped through Smith’s
It reawoke East Grinstead as an attacking force and they
forced two big stop from David Fitzgerald while Condon fired wide. Davy Carson
tested Smith’s reflexes once more but no further chances accrued.
