Hallam go Stateside


Posted 05th April 2014 - Posted in Match Reports Hallam go Stateside Hallam thought they had put the early season discipline problems behind them but unfortunately it raised it's ugly head again in todays game with a well organised Eccleshill team built around a number of US overseas students studying at Leeds Carnegie. Although Hallam had the best of the opening 20 minutes the visitors took the lead on 27 minutes after the defence went to sleep at a short corner and as the first effort rebounded off the post Adam McCabe responded quickest to give Eccleshill the lead. You would have hoped that the Countrymen were still in with a shout if they could just keep this deficit into the second half however on the stroke of half time Mark West was adjudged to handle the ball as he slid in on challenge and the referee pointed to the spot. Eccleshill took full advantage and went 2-0 up as Marcus Edwards made no mistake with his penalty. Hallam's chances of getting back into the game ended early in the second half when Mark West's second booking was followed by a red card and his frustration was reflected across the team as several players from both sides then followed him into the book,unecessary given this was by no means an aggressive game. The visitors went on to subject the Countrymen to two further well crafted goals through Edwards and Stevenson and their biggest home defeat of the season. They will no doubt be flying the stars and stripes over Bradford this evening.
