Match report

Hat tricks from Harry Trusler and Sam Ward saw Holcombe cruise to an 8-1 win over KS AZS AWF Poznan in a breathtaking first appearance in the EHL.

It left the Polish side chasing shadows while the English club will now hope to get a big win over reigning champions SV Kampong on Saturday to advance to the KO16.

Trusler got the English side on the board when he pounced on a mid-circle rebound to pop home. Nick Bandurak made it 2-0 at half-time with a low reverse when found on the left of the circle.

Ward got in on the act after the big break for 3-0 before he and Trusler added their second in quick succession. Trusler completed his triple in the 50th minute only for Patryk Pawlak to get one back from a penalty stroke.

But further goals for Ward and Robert Field notched up the 8-1 victory and a great start for the Kent club.
