UNDER-18 PLATE

QUARTER-FINAL

Bury St Edmunds 2 Belper 4

DESPITE a strong display Bury St Edmunds crashed out of the competition following a 4-2 defeat.

Against the run of play, Belper opened the scoring following a well-struck penalty corner.

Bury responded well and their own penalty corner routine involving a feint from Tasker allowed Nunn to fire home and draw level.

However, the visitors regained the lead just before half-time.

After the break, Belper extended their advantage with two further strikes and although Nunn responded with an excellent individual effort, it could not prevent defeat as Belper progressed.
