Home hosts Harvestehuder THC offered Scottish champions
Grange little home hospitality as they ran up a huge 6-1 win to give them the
early advantage in Pool B of the Euro Hockey League Round 1 in Hamburg.
They were dominant from the moment Michael Körper opened the
deadlock in the third minute with a rocket of a penalty corner goal. The
Austrian forward then volleyed home a bouncing ball for a 2-0 lea.
Brendan Creed fired home a corner rebound after Tobias Hauke
had seen his shot saved by Sean Hadfield. Nick Spooner completed the first half
scoring with a simple finish into an open goal.
Spooner got an awesome touch to Creed’s brilliant cross from
the right wing. Leon Willemsen added the sixth from close range for 6-0 before
Todd Harmsworth got one back for the Scottish side with a delightul deflection
to Andrew Campbell’s pass.
Grange will meet debutants HC Wien on Saturday before
Harvestehuder play Wien on Sunday.
