Match report

Western Wildcats took their first ever EHL victory as they struck late to defeat first-time entrants TJ Plzen Litice with a 3-1 success.

Player of the match Frazer Moran set them on their way with a powerful push into the bottom right corner for a 13th minute lead but they were back level with five minutes to go to half-time.

Litice’s key man Adam Uhlir drove through the heart of the Western circle and his rising shot took a wicked touch in off the body of a back-tracking defender.

It remained that way for a long while before the game was finally settled in the last nine minutes. Jonathan Christie – who has played in the EHL since 2007 – was the man to make it 2-1 when he slotted home a corner move which deceived the Czech side’s defences.

And the insurance goal came soon three minutes later when another corner fell to Adam McAllister who volleyed home from mid-circle.
