Keeper Bryans the hero in EH Vase penalty flick win
Berko and Hemel Men's Is enjoying a thrilling penalty flick win in a weekend where there were lots of wins across the club.
A much changed Is turned out on Sunday in the Second Round of the EH Vase to face Phoenix and Ranelagh, a team they had beaten two years before at the same stage of the knockout tournament.
The game was nip and tuck and finished 0-0 after 70 minutes and went to penalty flicks. Then keeper Xavi Bryans stepped up and proceeded to save every flick whilst Berko’s penalty takers didn’t miss one to secure a place in the third round.
