MENS HOCKEY Bristol's University challenge at Cardiff

england hockey shieldBristol University top the men's West of England & South Wales Hockey League following back-to-back 3-0 home Premiership wins.

Bristol’s first away university challenge is at unbeaten Cardiff tomorrow following home successes against Cardiff & Met A and Wotton-under-Edge.

Greg Summers 2 and Jonty Stephenson scored for Bristol against Cardiff & Met. 

Cardiff University kept up their winning start with a 3-0 cross-city derby victory at Whitchurch and goals for Will Seward, Tom Dodwell and Oskar Kolk.

Team Bath Buccs A are the only other side boasting a 100 per cent record after two rounds following their 3-2 Friday night win at Wotton, and an opening day 3-1 win at Taunton Vale.

Buccs play their first home game tomorrow, against a Truro side fresh from their 4-1 win over Taunton in Cornwall.

Exeter University A topped the finishing class in their 5-1 Devon derby win over Plymouth Marjon.

Marjon manager Jamie Oxley said: “Very simply Exeter were clinical scoring five from six chances including two from two penalty corners.”

Plymouth squandered five corner chances and a further hatful of open play opportunities.

Bemused Oxley added: “We did everything we set out to achieve in the game other than put the ball in the back of the net.

“An overtime goal from JJ Brown from a penalty corner was scant consolation as we were extremely frustrated by the result having played far better than the scoreline suggests.”

Promoted Westbury & United Banks claimed their first Premiership point from a 2-2 home draw with Firebrands. Westbury visit Plymouth tomorrow, Brands journey across the Severn to Cardiff to play Whitchurch.
