All 2 Hockey teams returned to league action this week with mixed outcomes!
The 1st X1 were overpowered by league leaders Lichfield but the score line of 2-7 flattered the visitors as Tows had plenty of chances to close the gap! Meanwhile the mighty 2nd team powered to victory away against Earls Barton 1st’s thereby strengthening their grip at the top of Northants Div 1 and the 3rds had a comfortable win again Oundle 2nds! See hockey website and AboutMyArea for match reports!
The 1st XV returned to winning ways in a rearranged fixture against Maidenhead at a very blustery Greens Norton Lane. They dismantled the opposition pack ruthlessly and the backs cut loose with precision that has been lacking for much of the season. This strong performance gives them confidence and lifts them to 2nd in the league, strengthening their push for promotion!
The 2nds narrowly lost by one point away to a strong Daventry 1st XV and felt they should have won it! The Ultimates didn’t play because of a waterlogged pitch but the Colts found form again winning away to Men’s Own. As ever, much more info and reports on the Rugby section website………
Although the official results are not in yet we have been reliable informed by George Newton that at least one of their teams recorded a win last week………….. J
