Blackpool’s 2XI braved the cold weather to play Didsbury this week. Blackpool started quickly and were one goal up within a couple of minutes. A good Blackpool move was well finished by Jordan Payne to give the perfect start. Blackpool continued to create numerous chances and were playing some good hockey in difficult conditions. The second goal followed from a short corner with Chris Hocking striking well. Blackpool continued to be the dominant force throught the game although failed to convert any of the chances that came their way ending the game as 2-0 victors. Overall it was a valuble 3 points and a good clean sheet to continue to apply pressure to the teams above in the promotion race.
