Invicta Dynamos lose to Slough Jets and Streatham Redhawks in NIHL South Division 1
Invicta Dynamos didn’t get the rewards their efforts warranted at the weekend.
The Mos lost 6-4 to the NIHL South Division 1 leaders Slough Jets on Saturday and followed that up with a 2-1 defeat against Streatham in Gillingham.
Those defeats come after back to back losses last weekend but it was a different story this time around - having deserved little the week before - with Karl Lennon’s men unfortunate not to claim any points from two committed performances.
A big list of missing players didn’t help their cause, with Lennon appearing himself for the first time this season, but the head coach couldn’t fault his team’s efforts.
Lennon said: “We have had a bit of a tough run with injuries and unavailability, we had nine players not available over the weekend and last weekend was touched by that a little too.
“On top of that we had two players representing Great Britain in the roller hockey and of course that is a great opportunity for them and one we support, we want to make sure they get the most out of all opportunities that are presented to them.
“We were short and of course felt that way going into Saturday and Sunday but I couldn’t have asked for more from the players, the place they had put themselves in compared to the week before was completely different, it was more reflective of the group and more reflective of what we want to be as a club and that was the most important thing.
“Yes, okay we lost both games, but they were played in the right spirit and were it not for a few decisions, both by ourselves and the officials, then we might have got something out of both games but the luck doesn’t always go your way. I am sure it will be more favourable for us soon.”
