Posted by Portobello ASC on Sunday, September 30, 2012,
Portobello travelled to Sheffield this weekend to play their next 2 matches in the BWPL Division 1 matches. They would face Manchester on Saturday followed by Lancaster on Sunday.

It was a poor start for Porty against Manchester, going down 5 - 1 in the first period due to several counter attacks from the English side. Porty then went on to win the final three quarters and they were level pegging midway through the 4th. But Manchester took the win 11 goals to Porty's 10.
