Pep Romeu’s single goal earned Club Egara a 1-0 win over
East Grinstead that puts them in great shape to advance to the KO16, needing a
draw on Sunday to top Pool D.
Patrick Smith kept East Grinstead in the game in the first
half, running up a quartet of great stops with Eduardo Arbos the man most often
frustrated by the goalkeeper’s dexterity.
Twice Smith blocked Arbos on the backhand while another
effort pinged the right post as Egara created the best of the first half
chances. The goalkeeper was at it again in the second half with two more big
stops but he was eventually beaten by Pep Romeu who powered in a drag-flick.
From that point, East Grinstead started to push forward with
much more purpose and won a couple of penalty corners but Adam Seccull fired
one over and Simon Faulkner saw another one saved by Quico Cortes.
They could not break through as Egara stood firm and
recorded their 1-0 win.Picture credit: Andy Mair
