A determined performance saw Southgate record a 3-2 win over Sevenoaks in this top of the table clash, and replace their opponents at the head of the table.
A bright start by Southgate saw them totally dominate the first quarter of this game, however they were unable to find the back of the goal with several chances going begging. As the half progressed, Sevenoaks started to enjoy some possession of their own, however it was still slightly against the run of play when Sevenoaks’ Tejinder Hanspal opened the scoring giving the visitors a 1-0 half time lead.
The opening minutes of the second half were a much more even affair, however Southgate levelled the scores in the forty fourth minute through a John Sterlini penalty corner, and then took lead from a close range flick courtesy of Drew Burkin five minutes later. Thereafter Sevenoaks pressed to find the equaliser, but the Southgate defence stood firm before they put the game out of reach via Joe Bradley and a well worked penalty corner with two minutes to go. Sevenoaks managed to get one back from a Andrew Ross penalty corner on the last play of the match.
