Boars keep mo­men­tum HOCKEY

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

EAST­COTE re­main two points clear at the top of the MBBO Re­gional Divi­sion One as they seek pro­mo­tion to the South League.

The Boars kept up their mo­men­tum with a con­vinc­ing 4-1 vic­tory over Walling­ford on Satur­day to re­main in pole po­si­tion.

Walling­ford opened the scor­ing against the run of play but the Boars were not wor­ried as two first half goals from Will Alder­ton and Mark Allison got them ahead.

And fur­ther goals from David Cooper and Alex Coyle con­firmed the three points would be go­ing home to East­cote.

Mean­while, East­cote’s sec­ond XI, also play­ing in this league af­ter pro­mo­tion, grabbed their first win of the cam­paign with a 2-1 win over PHC Chiswick. Goals from Ben StaffordNayer and Kern Sorzano got the job done.

It was a frus­trat­ing day for the ladies team as they let a 2-0 lead slip to draw 2-2 with Hen­ley in South Divi­sion 3A. Goals from Claire Dev­ereaux and Cather­ine Ash­ton had put them in con­trol.

Sun­day saw two East­cote teams in England Hockey Cup ac­tion with the over-50s beat­ing Old Loughto­ni­ans in a Tro­phy sec­ond round clash thanks to Steve Co­p­land, Gavin Stones and Raj Bhadresa.

How­ever, it was not so good for the Ladies Masters team who lost 3-1 in Jer­sey with a Meg Wil­liams con­so­la­tion not enough.
