The first game was on June 9 against Welsh side Gwent HC, who won 3-0. It was a tough game with an experienced opponent. Chances came on both sides, but Gwent were more effective in scoring. The LHC players fought hard to get back in the game, but unfortunately their relentless effort was not rewarded.
The second game was on June 10 in the return game against Gwent. Knowing the opponent better, it should have been a different game, but Gwent came out strongly and LHC had a challenging time keeping the pace. Gwent was very efficient and scored quickly in the first half to go 2-0 up after 20 minutes. The final score was 6-0.
