The second half remained goalless and until Carson levelled the score in the 68th minute.
Beeston Head Coach, Stephen Wood, commented, “It was a tough game today and we’re obviously disappointed to drop a goal with 2 minutes to go. Both teams had a number of good chances and played good, open hockey. We’re now at the crunch point of the season with four games left and we’re lucky to be at home for three of them.”
