Game 1 v LIT

England suffered an 18-13 (5-5, 4-3, 4-2, 5-3) defeat to Lithuania in their opening match at the EU Nations Senior Men’s Tournament.

A few defensive lapses proved costly for England as Lithuania edged a tight first half before the eastern Europeans pulled away in the second half to secure the victory.

Full England squad and scorers versus Lithuania:

Peter Pickford, Connor Carpenter, Lewis Daly (2), Jordan Elliot (2), Matthias Madden, Daniel Paddon (3), Michael Patterson (1), Rudi Polster (2), John Pratt (1), Isaac Wass, Aaron Winstanley (1), Joel Leighton & Finley Parnell (1)

Game 2 v SUI

England slipped to a narrow 9-8 (3-1, 2-3, 1-2, 3-2) defeat to Switzerland in their second match at the EU Nations Senior Men’s Tournament.

Despite falling 3-1 behind at the end of the first, England responded superbly to win the next two quarters, but it just wasn’t enough to take all the points.

A fantastic performance in places by Tim Dunsbee’s young side and almost the perfect response to yesterday’s defeat to Lithuania.

Dylan Green, Connor Carpenter, Christopher Sturtevant, Lewis Daly, Jordan Elliot, Matthias Madden, Daniel Paddon, Michael Patterson, Rudi Polster, John Pratt, Isaac Wass, Aaron Winstanley, Joel Leighton, Finley Parnell & Peter Pickford.

Game 3 v AUT

England narrowly lost a fierce battle with Austria 7-6 (1-1, 3-1, 1-2, 2-2) in their third match at the EU Nations Senior Men’s Tournament.

Tim Dunsbee’s side pushed the more experienced and physical Austrians all the way, but couldn’t find a way through in the final quarter.

A harsh defeat for England, who had the better chances in the closing stages, but more great experience as the team continues to build towards this summer’s World University Games in Naples.

Game 4 v USA

England went down fighting 19-8 (4-2, 6-2, 3-1, 6-3) to USA (Los Angeles Athletic Club) in their fourth match at the EU Nations Senior Men’s Tournament.

A tough workout for England’s young side, but more valuable international experience ahead of this summer’s World University Games in Naples.
