OBs’ 5ths played host to Holcombe Men’s 6ths, looking to continue their four match winning run. Despite having the better of the first half, OBHC went in to the half-time break 1-0 down. A good start to the second period saw the hosts turn the deficit into a 2-1 lead, courtesy of Rob Short and Paul Ross-Gower.
