Hocky Round up

Solihull Blossomfield 2

Solihull Blossomfield 2

Bridgnorth 2

A fine goalkeeping display from the Bridgnorth stopper prevented Blossomfield from picking up the full three points.

Eddie James had three cleared off the line, while Chris Davis and Craig Tiffany had shots brilliantly saved before the visitors scored against the run of play.

Bloss came roaring back though and finally beat the Bridgnorth keeper twice in quick succession - Craig Tiffany deflecting the ball home after a great team move and Marcus Bowen scoring from six inches after the keeper have saved another Chris Davis shot.

The second half was much in the same vain as the first with Bloss attacking well and Bridgnorth relying on their keeper and poor finishing to stay in it.

And an undeserved equaliser late on gave the away side a share of the spoils.

Aston University 6

Yardley 1

Yardley are still looking for their first win of the season after losing 6-1 to Aston University.

The Body Kraft MRHA West Midlands Division 2 basement boys have failed to win a single game in their 11 outings so far this season.

They trailed by two goals at half time and after the break the students converted another two quick-fire strikes.

Yardley pulled one back through Andy Pyke but there was no way back when the Uni added another two late goals to complete the rout,

Their next game is away to Kynoch.

Olton 2

Lichfield 1

A Sukhi Sidhu strike gave Olton a much-needed win at Grange Road on Saturday.

Rupert Waters deflected Stephen Twist’s shot on goal to give the hosts the lead before Lichfield equalised after the break.

After Sidhu’s goal the visitors threw everything at Olton but they held firm to record the win.

Olton Ladies 12

Chelmsford Ladies 0

Four goals from Denise Marston-Smith and a Rachel Walker hat-trick helped Olton Ladies to a crushing 12-0 success.

From the first whistle Olton dominated the game, giving Chelmsford no time to establish any real possession or rhythm. They opened the scoring with only eight minutes gone when Walker converted from a short corner, and this opened up the flood gates.

On 13 minutes Marston-Smith scored her first goal of the afternoon, followed this up with another on 27 minutes and completed her hat-trick on 32 minutes.

Lucilla Wright scored in the 31st minute with a sweetly-struck short corner, and Walker got her second goal almost on the half-time whistle to take Olton into the break with a 6-0 lead.

After the break Olton scored another six goals inside 17 minutes through Marston-Smith, Holly Chipman, Naomi James,Walker and Emma McCabe.

Next week they travel to Ipswich.
