A promising start to their home National Division One tournament at Alive Lynnsport, sponsored by Samueljacks T-Shirt Shop, saw Lynn Roller Hockey Club start strongly against England Ladies.

By half-time Lynn had a comfortable 5-0 lead. Josh Webb helped Lynn to a final winning score of 9-0.

Goals scored by: Webb (6), Alex Hunn, Tom Barry, Jordan Shread.

The good start and teamwork once again disappeared as in the previous tournament.

Against a strong Ely team, at half-time Lynn were 2-0 down. Lynn failed to rally in the second half and lost 6-0.

Next up were Maidstone, a team that had provided a stern test for Lynn at the last tournament. Lynn picked up their game again after some stern words from the coach and took a comfortable 6-2 half-time lead.

Lynn maintained their momentum, eventually winning 11-6.

Goals: Barry (5), Webb (3), Andy Horn, Owen Norris, Shread.

Last game was against the England Project 2015 team and Lynn gave a poor performance just as they had last time against this team. Disjointed and bad positioning allowed Project to lead 4-1 at half-time. Lynn finally lost 8-2.

Goals: Horn, Webb.

Lots of improvement is needed before Ely’s home tournament in May.
