Hockey: Dutch stop Cannock
After a goalless first half in which Cannock's defence held firm, with Julian Halls and Paul Edwards outstanding, it was a clumsy tackle by Welsh international Edwards on Geeris which gave the Dutch the opening they had striven for but seldom looked likely to achieve.
As Cannock pressed forward for the equaliser, holes began to appear in their defence and it was no surprise when Geeris slipped in for his second in the 61st minute, beating Jimi Lewis from the edge of the circle.
Cannock missed chances in the first half and failed to bring a save out of the Dutch goalkeeper Roland Jansen from three penalty corners in the first three minutes. Bobby Crutchley also missed a good opportunity from an Andy Humphrey pass on the quarter hour.
Cannock's coach, Keith Sorrell, was disappointed with the result but delighted with the display. "We played well without luck running our way," he said.
