Nick Bandurak 450


Alex Penney hit six goals as Surbiton blasted their way through Isca in round three of the Men’s Cup. Surbiton might be struggling in the league, tenth in the Men’s Hockey League Premier Division, but they put Isca to the sword today with a 10-0 drubbing.

Cannock are third in the Premier Division and they faced Canterbury who sit one place above them. But Cannock managed to turn the tables on the favourites, with a resounding 6-1 victory.

An own goal after eight minutes gave them the momentum and they never looked in trouble as goals from Dave Harris, Will Hearn, Josh Gunnell and a quick fire brace from Nick Bandurak (pictured, above) completed the rout.

There was to be no shock for Beeston as the unbeaten Premier Division leaders put six past Conference North side Bowdon. Sam Dixon notched two as they went on to record a 6-2 score line away from home.

The only other Premier Division team in action today, Hampstead and Westminster, also came away with a win after Will Naylor led the scoring in a 4-0 whitewash of University of Birmingham.

There were two big scores in round three with Conference East’s Bromley and Beckenham beating Yeovil and Sherborne 12-1 and Conference North side Preston beating Edgbaston 12-0 with Antil Manaj and Adam Wilson both hit hat-tricks.
