Scar­bor­ough Hockey Club’s men’s first team charged nine points clear with a suc­cess against Wake­field 4ths.

Scar­bor­ough Hockey Club’s men’s first team charged nine points clear at the top of the ta­ble with a 7-2 suc­cess against Wake­field 4ths.

Due to the weather con­di­tions only they man­aged to get their game on, as the mens sec­ond team and the ladies had their matches post­poned.

The game with Wake­field was a top-of-the-ta­ble clash, with the home team look­ing to ce­ment their place at the sum­mit.

Scar­bor­ough started the brighter with some good play and two quick goals from cap­tain Rikki Lawrence, shortly fol­lowed by a deft touch from Mike Humphries to give the hosts a 3-0 lead at the break.

Wake­field came out quickly and pulled on back to make it 3-1.

Scar­bor­ough turned it on again with an­other from Lawrence and a penalty flick con­verted by Chris Tait, be­fore Tait added an­other from a short cor­ner to make it 6-2.

An­thony Al­li­son added an­other to seal a 7-2 vic­tory.

With all three Scar­bor­ough teams away this week­end, they will be look­ing to con­tinue the mo­men­tum.

The Men’s first team are look­ing to ex­tend their lead at the top when they face Hal­i­fax 3rds.

The Men’s sec­ond team are still seeking their first win as Har­ro­gate 6ths are the hosts and the Ladies have a mid­day start away to Leeds 4ths.
