Blackpool’s 2XI travelled away to play a strong Liverpool University side. Yet Blackpool started the match quickly, getting on the front foot with two early Chris Hocking goals! However Liverpool came back strongly to pull the game level at 2-2. The game continued with Blackpool creating most of the chances and through 2 further goals from Chris Hocking and 1 from Jordan Payne they managed to hold a strong 5-3 lead at half time! The second half was very different with both sides struggling to find the back of the goal. Although with the last action of the game Liverpool did find a goal to leave the score at 5-4 and another vital 3 points for Backpool who mantain their strong form following the Christmas break!
