Onwards & Upwards
Maidstone 6ths were simply not on the park, for the first half of their match away at Herne Bay, and we're fortunate to only be 2 down at half time. The second half was a distinct difference, as attitude and commitment from the whole team increased. This was rewarded as Maidstone drew level within 10 minutes of the restart, with Simon Wood converting from penalty corners. Man of the match James Goodbody then neatly slotted a third, as the visitors continued to confine the play within the Herne Bay half. Jim Throwers persistence won yet another short corner, and for the second week running, Simon Wood completed a hat trick as he dummied the keeper and slotted into an unguarded net. Herne Bay pulled one back with a breakaway, two minutes from time, but weren't given any other opportunities as Maidstone held firm to gain their second away win of the season.
