Fi­nal day heart­break

HOCKEY

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

EASTCOTE missed out on pro­mo­tion on the fi­nal day, de­spite se­cur­ing vic­tory over PHC Chiswick.

The Boars were 8-2 win­ners over their west Lon­don neigh­bours, but Ash­ford thrashed Eastcote’s sec­ond string 9-0 to take the ti­tle on goal dif­fer­ence.

Four goals from Kevin Haigh, two from Gabriel Emery and one apiece from Mark Al­li­son and David Cooper got the job done against Chiswick be­fore the bad news fil­tered through.

Mean­while, Eastcote’s U16s boys were beaten 5-4 on penalty strokes af­ter letting a two-goal lead slip against In­dian Gymkhana in the Mer­cian Home Coun­ties quar­ter fi­nal.

And at the Rover Ox­ford Festival, there was a run­ners up place for the hard­work­ing U12s boys side.
