Egara 3 - 2 Pembroke Wanderers

Pembroke lost their opening Euro Hockey League match 3-2 against Egara but picked up a bonus point for finishing within one goal. The sides were tied at 1-1 after the first quarter after Edourard Tubau opened the scoring - with a deft deflection from the left wing - before Craig Fulton levelled matters, reacting quickest with a waist-high volley on his reverse stick after Ian Symons initial effort was saved.

The Spanish side built up a two goal lead in the second quarter, Tubau crashing in a rebound while Justin Sheriff was in the sin bin and Guillermo Schickendantz slotting home after being found unmarked by another left wing cross.

Pembroke had chances to narrow the gap with Sheriff's cross just evading Paddy Good's stick before Gordy Eliott gobbled up a rebound to give Pembroke a chance with 12 minutes remaining. They couldn't capitalise and has to settle for a single point.
