Dan Laxton inspired a storming start by Welsh Wanderers against Polytechnic, netting all his side’s goals as they took a 4-2 first quarter lead.
Wanderers went 11-9 up when Lewis Gilmour scored at the start of the final period – but that sparked a tremendous Poly revival which was to earn them the points with a 13-12 win. The vital goals were scored by Sergio Schiaffano (3) and Pedro Stellet. Laxton’s seventh goal of the game came too late to rescue his side.
