Salisbury avenged their 5 – 2 defeat to Romsey in 2013 with a reverse scoreline at home in a match that was evenly contested until the last quarter.

Romsey started with ten men due to 2 players delayed on arrival, and it looked liked that would prove costly when a Salisbury move down their left pressured Luke Hammond and Nick Buck. Ian Wilson attempted to cover but the ball was slipped to a Salisbury forward who executed his shot past Alex Buck in goal.

Romsey raised their game, and Sam Barcia played a sliderule pass to David Forgan who squared high to Ben Ellis who reversed stick stopped the ball in the air and pushed in it to the goal from a yard out.

Romsey put Salisbury under pressure as they got up to a full complement of eleven, Sam Barcia played in Chris Harwood down the left and he interchanged with Hugh Davidson at left back to play in Ellis again.

James Manning now at right back was stopping all the Salisbury attacks with Nick Buck a rock at the centre, always getting to the ball first.

With the game about to come to half time Salisbury were awarded a penalty corner – the whistle blew – Salisbury brought their full team up and won another penalty corner. from the second corner a Salisbury shot rocketed in to the bottom corner to see a HT score of Salisbury 2 – Romsey 1.

In the 2nd half Salisbury came out on top initially and scored a third goal early on, but Romsey bounced back and made it 3-2 with fifteen minutes to go through a superb strike, after a good team move, by David Forgan.

Romsey though ran out of steam as they looked for an equaliser and two Salisbury goals in 60 seconds in the last ten minutes saw the final score Salisbury 5 -2 Romsey.
