Saturday 28th November - league week 10

M1 drew 1-1 with 2nd place WGC after going behind to the home side in the first half. In the second Jon Oliver won a short corner, which brother Matt converted off the umpire. Stevenage will be happy, but Welwyn would feel like they should have taken all three points.

M2 lost 2-7 to a stronger Cheshunt 1s. Stevenage went 1-0 up through a deflected Adam Spicer cross, but that was the only time the 2s were in front. Ollie Holt took a serious injury at the end of the first half when his side were having a good spell. Connor Gask scored in the second to give the home side some hope at 2-3 but things went downhill from then.

M3 drew 2-2 with Bishops Stortford 4s. The home side went ahead through Zeddy Wilcock, and again through Seb Rose, but were pegged back on each occasion.

M4 lost 1-7 at Potters Bar 2s: Ian Brown scored the consolation goal but the visitors were never in this one.

M5 lost 2-7 at St Albans 7s, despite goals from Harry Wheeler and Kevin Wharton.

M6 collected 3 points because Cheshunt couldn't field a side, but would rather have played.

L1 lost narrowly 0-1 to Hertford 1s the visitors scoring in the last 10 minutes to give a disappointing scoreline for Stevenage against a team beneath them in the league.

L2 beat Bishops Stortford 3s 3-1 the home side going 2-0 up through Debbi Church and daughter Bex, only for Stortford to reduce the arrears. It was left to Daisy Mould to clinch a well won victory.

L3 lost 0-2 to West Herts 3s who went top as a result. The team played as a unit moving the ball around well with some excellent defending by man of the match Amanda Lawrence, her fellow backs and Jo Cole which frustrated the home side. In Midfield Nicki Reynolds (yes Nicki!) and Sarah Rose deserve a special mention with Karen and her fellow forwards helping to create a few chances which on another day would have resulted in goals. All in all lots of positive to take forward to next week.

L4 were defeated 1-6 at St Albans 5s but played some of their best hockey of the season in the first half to trail by a single goal at the break. Nikki Davies scored their goal.

L5 lost 0-6 at Queenswood 3s but were not too disappointed by this result against an excellent young side.

 
PLAYER OF THE WEEK - Debbi Church, scorer, mother and ticked the "no publicity" box

Sunday 22nd November - HA Vase

M1 took a depleted side to Haslemere and lost this cup tie  2 - 0 despite holding out until halftime.

Saturday 21st November - league week 9

M1 lost 1 - 3 at Bedford 2s and were brought down to earth with a bump after 12 goals last week, losing both their unbeaten record and top spot in the league to Bedford. Mike Oliver scored the only goal for the disappointed visitors and was also yellow carded.

M2 lost 0 - 6 to St Albans Exiles in another come down after a big win last week. The home side held a strong Exiles side to 1 - 0 at half-time and then played their best hockey of the game but were unable to stem the tide of goals against.

M3 beat Welwyn Garden 2s 3 - 0, a comprehensive victory taking the home side to second spot in the table with a list of goal scorers that looks like the first team from 20 years ago - Roger Barlow, Nick Crocker and Ian Wilcock.

M4 beat Bishops Stortford 6s 3 - 2 a brace from skipper Simon Russell and a trademark strike from Ian Brown giving the visitors a 3 goal lead. Stortford pulled one back before halftime and another near the end but the 4s finished strongly.

M5 lost 0 - 1 to Southgate Adelaide 4s despite strong defensive performances from Alec Tompson and keeper Mike Hamid, the home side succumbed to physically strong opponents and were left to rue offences that led to two strikes being disallowed.

M6 won at Hertford 4s 1 - 0 thanks to a solo goal from 15 year old Harry Wheeler, a battling performance from Tony Farnan's men, a fine debut by (only just) 13 year old David Spicer and goalkeeping heroics from JP Alion.

L1 beat Potters Bar 3 - 1 despite being a goal behind at half-time the home side were able to lift themselves to dominate the second half and goals from Caroline Ayles, Lucy Harvey and Steph Fanthorpe may not have been classics but they were all richly deserved.

L2 lost 0 - 3 at St Albans 2s and despite the scoreline this was a strong team performance against the top of the table team that produced a very enjoyable game. Zoe Heaton was the outstanding player for the visitors but a number of others played well.

L3 lost 0 - 1 at Blueharts 2s in an even match played in awful weather conditions the goal that clinched the game may well have been disallowed on another day.

L4 lost 0 - 3 to Cheshunt 2s an extremely disappointing result for the home side against the bottom of the table side and a performance the team will not wish to repeat.

L5 beat Bedford 5s 2 - 0 an outstanding first win of the season for the home side with copious amounts of hard work in training and on the pitch at last paying dividends. Tamlynn Bagnall and Debbie Hatton scored the goals.


PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Lucy Harvey in fine form for L1
