There were some high-scoring games as Stevenage Hockey Club had a full weekend of fixtures.

The biggest win came for the women's second team who won 6-0 away to Berkhamsted & Hemel in East League Division Two South West.

It took them a while to get into the game but once they found their groove, they brushed the hosts aside.

Claire Westie and Katherine Swarbrick scored in the first half with the former also scoring in the second half.

Hannah Collard bagged a brace as well with Chloe Jones getting the sixth.

The most goals in a game was eight, with both the men's first and third teams winning 5-3.

The ones beat neighbours Letchworth at home in a Division Two South West clash.


The visitors actually led 2-0 after 20 minutes but that stung Stevenage into action and they romped to victory.

Andrew Gardner, Niall Trimble, Aiden Parker, Luke Wilkinson and Michael Oliver got the goals.

The threes were also at home with their success coming against Bedford.

Richard Brendish put them in front with a deft flick and after Bedford equalised, Chris Day made it 2-1 at half-time.

John Mould got the third and although Bedford scored again, a second for Brendish and one for Ian Jackson finished the day off.

There was no luck though for the other two men's teams.

The seconds lost 2-1 away to Letchworth, Nick Umney getting the Stevenage goal, and the same score saw the fourths beaten at home to Southgate Adelaide.

Harp Mann scored with two minutes to go but there was not enough time to find an equaliser.

The thirds stayed top of Division Four South West after a 3-1 win at home to Bedford.

However, their advantage over Welwyn Garden City is now simply by virtue of their position in the alphabet as both teams have an identical record of points, wins, goals for and goals against.

Julie Rhodes got two with Holly Manning getting the other, the two winning goals coming in the final 15 minutes.

Becca Ford, Chloe Hazelwood, Laura Owen-Brown and Samantha Robbins all scored as the fourths beat Royston 4-0.

The firsts lost 3-0 at Bedford in Division One South with the player of the match award shared between Gemma Roakey and Emma Lucy.
