Men’s teams rack up cricket score

March 11, 2020

There were goals a plenty for the men’s section last weekend with 50 goals for and just 17 against on Saturday.

There were big wins for M5s – 9-1 away to Kings Alleyns M3s – and M4s 7-1 away to Hampstead & Westminster Hammers – as Flagons (O40s) continued their late season surge despatching Hampstead & Westminster O40s 4-3 away.  M2s beat Slough M1s 6-2 on the water pitch while M3s were seeing off Tulse Hill & Dulwich 4-3 on the far pitch at the same time. M1s travelled to Canterbury to earn their 4-1 win on Saturday and beat University of Birmingham 3-2 at home on Sunday to progress to the semi-finals of the cup.

Meanwhile Southgate’s East League men’s teams were also tearing up the opposition.

3As beat West Herts 4s 8-0 with goals from man-of-the-match Harry Grinham (3), Jackson Trathen (2), Matt Ellis (2) and Ravi Chana in a fantastic spectacle of beautiful passing hockey and teamwork.

Tankards A squeaked past Stevenage 3s by 2-1 with Simon Holmes getting on the score sheet along with captain and man-of-the-match Will Hargrove.

Tankards Y were not to be outdone and faced West Herts 6s winning by 5-2. Wayne Garner and Biffi scored one each but it was James Findlay who was the hat-trick hero and man of the match. Congratulations on your first hat trick for the club James, let’s hope it’s the first of many!

Southgate Hockey Club. Great fun, great hockey, great facilities.
