The Royal Navy have kept their U23s Inter Services title hopes alive with a win over the RAF in Portsmouth.
A second-half double from Owen Aquilina was the perfect recovery from a disappointing loss to the Army last week.
The RAF did get on the scoresheet as Matt Hendry took advantage of a defensive mistake but a 2-1 loss is not how they wanted to start their tournament.

The Navy will be hoping for a narrow RAF win over the Army in the final game of the tournament as they hope to win the title on goal difference.
The RAF know a big win will see them crowned as champions, while the Army have the simple task of just winning to be victorious.
