After the Christmas break, Spartans 2nd team had a stern test facing top of the league Basingstoke Bulls.
Spartans got off to a great start with Rob scoring nearly straight from the outset. A textbook running in shot with Ed assisting gave the Spartans a false sense of security. The lead, however, was short lived with the Bulls coming back almost immediately. Throughout the game the Bulls demonstrated their dominance with good attack and defence that made it hard for Spartans to get shots up.
As a relatively new team (with one member, Jo, having her first game for the Spartans) both divisions showed promise in attack at times scoring some well worked goals. Kim scored twice, and Rob again scored a fantastic running in shot. A penalty from Matt was a late consolation for the home team bringing the final score to 5-25. There were positives in attack for the home team, but there is clearly some work to be done in training over the next few weeks.
Scorers were: Rob (2), Kim (2), Matt (1)
