West Hampstead’s see-saw encounter ends level after eight-goal thriller

West Hampstead twice lost the lead and then fought back from behind on two occasions before eventually sharing a 4-4 draw with Blackheath in Southern Premier Division Two on Saturday.
Kwan Browne’s side drew first blood with an early penalty corner as Laxman Karan ripped the ball high and hard to the keeper’s right.
And, although Blackheath hit back to equalise, Karan put the visitors back in front with another penalty corner, this time flicking the ball into the side-netting to the keeper’s left.
The momentum shifted though, and their hosts capitalised on loose passing and defensive errors to strike twice and take a 3-2 lead into the interval.
Harry Slater was an influential figure on his debut as West Hampstead improved and levelled from another penalty corner, with their man of the match Ed Perry this time slotting home.
