East­cote slip off the top HOCKEY

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

EAST­COTE slipped to se­cond in the MBBO Re­gional One stand­ings af­ter let­ting a cou­ple of points slip against Wy­combe.

The Boars fell be­hind pro­mo­tion ri­vals Ash­ford on goal dif­fer­ence at the sum­mit as the Buck­ing­hamshire boys roared back to claim a 3-3 draw on Satur­day.

East­cote had com­fort­ably beaten Wy­combe in the re­verse fix­ture last year and it looked to be the same story this time round when Will Alder­ton and Mark Al­li­son gave them a 2-0 lead at the break.

Wy­combe pulled one back be­fore David Cooper re­stored the two-goal cush­ion with only 20 min­utes re­main­ing.

How­ever, vic­tory was taken away by a late show from the vis­i­tors as they ral­lied at the death to snatch a share of the spoils.

East­cote’s se­cond string lost to rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals Walling­ford 3-2, Fil da Costa and Joe Forster scor­ing the goals for the Boars. The ladies saw their game can­celled due to frost. WEM­B­LEY & HAR­ROW TA­BLE TEN­NIS LEAGUE RE­SULTS
