For­eign im­ports make all the difference

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RESULTS / ROUND-UP -

NEW sign­ings made an im­me­di­ate im­pact on the first day of the EY Hockey League as Pem­broke Wan­der­ers and Three Rock Rovers chalked up wins north of the bor­der.

Bel­gian im­port Cedric Mushi­ete scored what proved to be the win­ner at Cool­nafranky where Pem­broke de­feated Cook­stown by the odd goal in five. And South African in­ter­na­tional Richard Pautz lost no time in mak­ing his pres­ence felt as Rovers over­whelmed freshly pro­moted An­nadale 7-1 at Strat­hearn.

The striker from Pre­to­ria knocked in four of the seven, with all his goals com­ing in open play, while a Ben Walker brace and one from Ross Can­ning com­pleted the rout.

Ban­bridge also ex­tracted im­me­di­ate value from their sum­mer trans­fer ac­tiv­ity as Luke Witherow and Alex Tin­ney — both for­merly of Raphoe — were among the goals in their 4-0 vic­tory in Dublin at Rail­way Union.
