Bacchas in semi-finals

Penalty-flick shootout win over Lindum

Hockey - Bacchas men are through to the semi-finals of the England Hockey Tier Two Championship.

 

They won a thrilling game against Lincolnshire side Lindum on penalty-flicks on Sunday afternoon.

 

The visitors were crowned North Division One champions on Saturday thanks to a 7-1 victory at Neston.

 

Bacchas opened the scoring early on in the game thanks to an Andy Whiting strike from a short-corner but Lindum equalised with a penalty-corner routine of their own.

 

Lindum then took the lead at the start of the second half only for Bacchas to draw level almost immediately thanks to a goal from Craig Leece.

 

The match finished 2-2 and it was a challenge to see who would hold their nerves in a penalty-flick decider.

 

Lindum put their first effort wide and Karl Moore scored for Bacchas.

Home goalkeeper Dave Whiting then saved the next two efforts while Jonny Callow and Andy Whiting made no mistakes.

 

Lindum scored at the fourth time of asking but a successful conversion from captain Jamie Brown sealed a famous win and the Tromode side wait to see who they will play in the last four.
