Last night’s Div 2 men’s hockey clash between Excelsior and Cambridge Barbarians was fast and furious. Excelsior took a 3-1 lead, Cambridge fought back strongly to lock up the score 3-3 with 3 minutes to go. Play see-sawed the length of the field with both goals threatened until a last-gasp break out goal to Excelsior saw them take the win 4-3.
