Tay­lor-made cush­ion

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

EAST­COTE Hockey Club men were left with mixed feel­ings fol­low­ing Satur­day’s 2-2 draw at Old Mer­chant Tay­lors.

A point in their lat­est joust with the neigh­bours was enough to keep the Boars three points ahead of their pur­suers in the bat­tle for the MBBO Re­gional One ti­tle.

And while the vis­i­tors were left frus­trated by a late lev­eller from their hosts, after goals from skip­per Peter Brooks and Jimmy Thomas had se­cured a 2-1 lead, had it not been for a string of mag­nif­i­cent saves from keeper Mark Welch they could have re­turned home empty-handed.

East­cote’s next chal­lenge on the pro­mo­tion trail sees Ayles­bury as the vis­i­tors to Kings Col­lege Road on Satur­day.

Mean­while, in South Di­vi­sion 3A, East­cote Ladies eased them­selves to­wards mid-ta­ble se­cu­rity with a 6-1 thrash­ing of Read­ing 2s. Claire Dev­ereux’s four-timer led the rout with Cather­ine Ash­ton and Sofie Marchant also on the score­sheet.
