West Herts Hockey Club men’s first team remain unbeaten in East Premier A after they claimed a victory and a draw from their weekend double header.
On Saturday, the Stags were in fine form as they romped to an 8-2 win against Wisbech Town.
Wisbech had taken a surprise early lead but the Stags equalised and went on to record a comfortable victory.
Dan Webster and James Dyson notched braces and there were single goals from Dan Scott, Ian Gordon, Aaron Mitchell and Jason Mallory.
Sunday’s clash against Cambridge was a closer affair and the game ended 2-2.
Webster’s drag flick broke the deadlock but Cambridge equalised on the stroke of half-time.
West Herts were more dominant in the second period and Shea O’Sullivan, who had earlier been yellow carded, netted the hosts’ second goal.
But again Cambridge fought back and a late leveller meant the points were shared.
The ladies side were held to a 1-1 draw against Broxbourne in the East Premier.
The Stags had the majority of possession but fell behind in the opening period.
However, West Herts stepped up their game in the second half and levelled through Sammy Clifft to earn the draw.
The men’s Seconds lost 2-1 to Harpenden in Division One, the Thirds defeated Welwyn Garden 3-1 in Division Three SW and the Fourths were beaten 2-1 by Bishop’s Stortford Thirds in Division Four SW.
A high-scoring contest saw the Fifths beaten 8-4 by Berkhamsted Seconds in Division Five SW. The Sixths completed a 5-2 win against Hertford Fourths in Division Eight SW and the Sevenths beat Berkhamsted Fifths 2-1 in Division Nine SW.
The ladies’ Seconds defeated Tring 2-0 in Five Counties Premier, the Thirds overcame Hertford Seconds 1-0 in Division One and the Fourths won 7-0 against Broxbourne Fourths in Division Three.
The Fifths clinched a 2-1 win against Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead in Division Six.
