New faces boost Boars

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

FIL da Costa bagged a brace as East­cote Hockey Club’s men won 6-3 at Bri­tish Air­ways in their fi­nal warm up game be­fore the league pro­gramme starts.

Coach Lee Pet­tifer rang the changes and in­tro­duced some new play­ers to the squad and the Boars were al­ways in com­mand in a scrappy game.

Peter Brooks, Ian Sadler, Ben Thorpe, Jimmy Thomas and cap­tain Peter Brooks also net­ted as East­cote raced into a 6-1 lead be­fore BA pulled a cou­ple back late on.

How­ever, the ladies suf­fered a sec­ond league de­feat in a row fol­low­ing a poor per­for­mance at Mil­ton Keynes and had only a Marissa Gre­sophon goal to take away from their 4-1 de­feat.

The men take on Ox­ford Hawks 2nds in their open­ing league game at Kings Col­lege Road at noon on Satur­day, while the ladies host Wit­ney at 1.30pm.
