Maxifuel Super Sixes Championships Logo (2011-2012)



Victories against Trojans and Canterbury on Sunday saw Bowdon Hightown take top spot in the Maxifuel Super Sixes Championships.

No one has managed to beat the Cheshire side in the league stage of the indoor championships and the completed league table sees them sitting pretty at the head of the table, five points clear of the rest of the field.

Joining Bowdon Hightown in next Saturday's semi finals at Loughborough University will be Sutton Coldfield, Leicester and the 2011 runners-up Reading, after a thrilling final day in Bristol.

Michelle Liptrot and Tina Cullen have forged an incredible partnership for Bowdon Hightown and on Sunday alone they found the backboard 12 times between them, scoring all of the team’s goals.

Against Trojans, Cullen opened the scoring in the first minute before a quickfire hat-trick from the stick of Liptrot condemned the opposition to an 8-2 defeat.

Canterbury were next up and goals from Susannah Townsend and Grace Balsdon were not enough to stop Bowdon from taking maximum points once again.

Sutton Coldfield and Leicester were both in a strong position to finish second and as the two met, the game ended with honours even at 2-2.

Interestingly, both of these teams played Slough in their other matches and both recorded victories. And although Leicester were the more convincing winners over Slough with a Katie Long hat-trick helping them to a 6-4 win, it was Sutton Coldfield who snuck into second place, equal on points but with the slenderest of goal differences.

Canterbury had a lot to do on the final day if they were to reach the finals with them needing victories against Bowdon and Trojans to be sure of qualifying.

Although they competed with Bowdon Hightown they couldn’t find a way to beat the leaders and a 6-2 win over Trojans wasn’t enough, they miss out on the finals by just a single point.

It was Reading who took the fourth spot with two Emma Thomas braces contributing to a 5-3 win over Harleston Magpies and a resounding 6-1 beating of Clifton.

It’s been a long slog for Harleston Magpies who have lost all eight games of the series, scoring just ten goals.

Just above them on three points, Trojans have also struggled to compete but have put their all into making the last day of the group stage a difficult one for the top teams.

The top four teams in the Women’s Premier Division are now headed to Loughborough University where they will battle it out to reach the final to be played at Wembley Arena.  Ticket's for next weekend's semi finals are on sale at www.englandhockey.co.uk/store, starting at just £3.
