MBBO RE­GIONAL DI­VI­SION 1 Ayles­bury 2 East­cote 4

ACADEMY prod­uct Je Snell led the way as East­cote bagged a sec­ond league vic­tory of the campaign at win­less Ayles­bury on Satur­day.

Snell wasted no time mak­ing an im­pres­sion on the match, fir­ing the Boars ahead with just two min­utes on the clock and not con­tent with that he added a sec­ond to leave the vis­i­tors in firm con­trol at the break.

The hosts pulled one back mid­way through the sec­ond half, but this merely raised East­cote from their slum­bers and two quick strikes by first Mark Al­li­son and then Ben Thorpe meant Ayles­bury’s sec­ond from the last play of the game was mere con­so­la­tion.

East­cote lie sev­enth in the stand­ings, but in a tight di­vi­sion they are just three points adrift of lead­ers Ox­ford Hawks 2 ahead of the visit of an­other of the early sea­son high­fliers, Wy­combe to Kings Col­lege Road on Satur­day.

There was no joy for the ladies this week how­ever, as they strug­gled to make an im­pres­sion on their clash away at league lead­ers Hamp­stead & West­min­ster 2s, go­ing down 3-0.
