Canterbury men indoor 2013- 450


THE line-up for the semi finals of the Maxifuel Super Sixes Championships is known after the thrilling finale to the Premier Division group stages took place at St Georges Park in Burton on Trent last weekend.

After nine adrenaline-pumping clashes yesterday the semi final line-ups were confirmed as Canterbury v East Grinstead and Reading v Beeston, to take place on January 27 at Wembley.

The winners will then go head to head in the final on the same day.

Canterbury topped the table at the end of the weekend, and were the only side not to drop any points in the final weekend of high-octane action.

They began the day with an emphatic 8-2 win over Old Loughtonians, with Ben Allberry finding the goal four times. They then went on to beat Doncaster 6-4, with Allberry again on target, this time scoring a hat-trick to take his tally for the weekend to 13 goals.

Reading finished second in the table, and although they haven’t lost a single match so far, they have drawn three.

Sunday saw them draw 6-6 with third-placed Beeston, and the two teams will meet again in the semi finals.

Reading’s other Sunday match pitted them against Loughborough Students, and they won 7-5 with Simon Mantell scoring two he took his weekend total to 12 goals.

Beeston were top of the table after the first weekend of action, but a defeat to Canterbury and draws against Reading and East Grinstead left them third.

For their part, East Grinstead took the fourth and final place in the semi finals following a 3-3 draw with Bowdon and an 8-2 win over Surbiton, with Ashley Jackson scoring four times on Sunday.

At the other end of the table, Surbiton and Old Loughtonians will be relegated after finishing in the bottom two of the Premier Division.
