Match report

Old Georgians summoned an immense BRONZE MATCH performance to win their very first EHL Men’s medal, defeating Rot-Weiss Köln 3-2 in an emotional contest at the Wagener Stadium.

Chris Proctor proved the hero as his winning goal in the closing quarter won the day, thrashing home with just under seven minutes to go after a topsy-turvy contest.

Lee Morton was the inspiration for the first OGs goal, racing away from tackles before passing to Sam Hiha. His first time pass was perfect for Alan Forsyth to dive onto and score with another first touch.

Chris Proctor then dug out a super backhand shot from a classy move along the right baseline to make it 2-0 in the 39th minute.

Tom Grambusch dragged his side back into contention with two drag-flicks in quick succession from penalty corners to tie it up at 2-2 at the end of the third quarter.

And Rot-Weiss pressed forward looking to take the lead with Thies Prinz stinging the pads of George Pinner.

Old Georgians sat deep and looked to counter-attack and it was via this avenue they robbed possession on the 23-metre line. It was again worked to Proctor who got the ball onto his backhand and powered it past Jean Danneberg.

Rot-Weiss’s challenge was further dented when Tom Grambusch was shown a red card for dissent as the London club celebrated in style.
