Multistix Silence NDK Financiers

IPMC Hockey League Results: Multistix Silence Ndk Financiers

Multistix got NDK Financiers to eat back their words when they served them a cold meal of revenge with a 2-1 defeat last Saturday in their epic 2nd Round IPMC hockey league match. NDK Financiers who entered the match as league leaders with a 6 point margin had their lead cut to 3 by the determined Multistix. Multistix took an early lead and kept their foot on the pedal until they were rewarded with a second goal after a sustained pressure on the Financiers defense. Multi kept their defense tightly organized to end the first half 2-0 in their favour.

After the recess, NDK Financiers came back strongly in a bid to at least draw level but Multistix displayed a resolute organization in defense which frustrated the Financiers attack for the period of the match that they mounted those series of goal raids. Financiers however persisted and had a consolation goal in the dying minutes of the match.

In the other S-League match, Veteran recorded their first win of the season beating their arch rivals Citizens 3-2 in a closely fought contest. In the Men-A League, Golden Sticks defeated Marine Sticks 2-1. Marine Sticks started brilliantly, but could not fully hold the Commercial Bank lads in check. Exchequers with high hopes of coolly collecting all points at stake were disappointed when they were forced to a one all draw by Reformers. In the Women division, Extinguishers of Ghana Fire Service pip Police by a lone goal.
