Match Report - 02 Nov 2013, Harris Academy FP Hockey Club 1st Team Outdoor beat Dundee University

After a poor result at Ayr the weekend before Harris went into this match against an unbeaten Dundee University side with a team depleted due to injuries. Harris were the team that started best and were rewarded after 7 minutes when Neil Martin netted at the far post from an Albert Rowling cross.The University team responded well and from their second short corner in the 20th minute they equalised and five minutes later went ahead with a goal from open play. Just before half time Harris missed a great chance to equalise when Jimi Simpson put Albert Rowling through on goal. The teams turned round with the University 2-1 ahead. Harris started the second half well and the same combination that produced the first Harris goal combined well again with Neil Martin netting from Albert Rowling's pass after 4 minutes.In the 8th minute of the second half Harris were ahead when Albert burst through and his shot from the top of the D beat the keeper. The University team pushed forward in search of an equaliser forcing 3 short corners in the next 20 minutes but Harris always looked dangerous on the counter-attack and in the 30th minute Greg Whittet found space in midfield and picked out Neil Martin who beat the keeper with a reverse stick shot to complete his hat-trick and take Harris to a 4-2 win
