01 December 2008 - Close encounter!
Lightning nearly struck the Hurricanes!

Lightning pushed Hurricanes all the way on Sat in their Div.1 clash.

Hurricanes stormed into an early 7 goal lead with Lightning failing to score in the first 10 minutes!

However patient play by the Lightning players chipped away at Hurricanes lead & the first quarter ended with only 2 goals between the two teams.

During the 2nd quarter Hurricanes began to take control, extending their lead to 6 by half time.

Lightning however were not ready to give the game up & forced numerous errors from Hurricanes attack, closing the deficit to only 4 goals going into the final 15minutes.

It was a tense last quarter with neither team really dominating, both making errors, which resulted in the goals scored being 10-9 in Lightning's favour.

The final result of 30 - 27 to Hurricanes demonstrates the strength & depth Hucclecote have at this level. Well done to both squads, the game was a pleasure to watch played in a great spirit.
