A Brave Blackpool Eleven returned home from the long trip north to Keswick with 3 well deserved points. The Tight Nit group of players put behind them any club politics, and used the comments in midweek by senior club officials to spur them on to a famous BHC performance.
Built on a solid Defensive performance from Mortimer, Hood and MOM Conagh Griffin, Pool took the lead when Mitch Blakemore combined well with debutant Tom Myerscough. Pool counter attacked well, and went into the break with a doubled lead after Alex Diver deflected a Josh Boyne shot past the keeper.
In the second half, it was Keswick who scored against the run of play from a penalty corner, however Pool restored the lead after a fantastic strike into the top corner by Captain Diver.
When Keswick scored with 5 to go, Blackpool stood firm, and created more chances rather than caving under the cumbrian pressure. Final Score Keswick 2, Blackpool 3 (Diver 2, Blakemore 1) MOM Conagh Griffin #indiverwetrust
