Great Britain men go top of the Pro League

By Robert Wheeler

Great Britain claimed the top spot in the men’s FIH Pro League after an enthralling six-goal thriller against India.

Timothy Nurse gave Britain the lead after a great run and finish into the top corner. However, Harmanpreet Singh equalised from a penalty corner to make it 1-1 after the first quarter.

The second quarter saw Welsh goalkeeper Toby Reynolds-Cotterill brought on for his Britain debut. India thought they had taken the lead but a referral saw the goal ruled out for a back-stick. James Oates then won a penalty flick but unfortunately for Britain, James Wallace’s effort was saved.

Soon after the break, Thomas Sorsbury put Britain ahead from a penalty corner. GB then had three after Lee Morton scored after a fantastic solo run. Harmanpreet then scored again from a penalty corner to narrow the deficit just before the end of the third quarter.  

Nick Bandurak then scored from a tight angle to make it four for the Pride. Tempers then flared towards the end of the quarter, with Oates being green-carded. After a melee in the D. GB weathered some late pressure but held on for an impressive victory.

Next up for Britain, this sunny bank holiday weekend is another tough game against Belgium.
