LSHC Ladies 7,

Alford & District 2

The day after Halloween, Robyn Gribble’s hat-trick was a treat while Long Sutton Ladies lit up like fireworks, winning 5-1 over the first 35 minutes.

Before this game Alford were just one point behind Sutton. Scorers: Gribble 3, Woodhead 2, Southgate and Baker.

Player of the match: Leah Goodley.

Next Saturday Sutton go to Nomads who are just a point off third-spot Sutton.

LSHC Ladies 2nd 1,

Spilsby 9

Again the seconds suffered due to unavailability. In the second half Emma Howell made a pacy run from about halfway to score.

PoM: Issy Ellis and Sam Carr.

LSHC Men 3,

Harleston Magpies 2nds 1

Sutton gained a valuable three points in this Premier B fixture.

The deadlock was broken by the returning Danny Sisson.

Fyson made it 2-0 at the break.

The second half opened up and both keepers made some excellent saves.

Sutton added a third with a superb flowing move; Ellis, Harrison and Shore setting up Sisson. Sutton were reduced to nine men for two ill disciplined tackles and Magpies took advantage.

LSHC 2nd 1,

Cambridge Nomads 8

Nomads are clearly too good for this division and gave Sutton a lecture in quality hockey at times.

Harry Thorpe converted an Alex Canham shot to snatch his first second team goal.

LSHC 3rd 3,

Bourne Deeping 4ths 3

This game was crucial for both 5NW teams, and play was frantic from the start.

A shot to the back post by Matt King rolled in, and in the second half Jack Smith scored twice, but Bourne replied twice to level.

Louth 2nds 7,

LSHC 4th 1

Sutton’s much-changed fourths started a man short for an 11am start and that proved to be the difference.

Keeper Joss Calderbank kept out two penalty strokes and Will White replied.
