Scott & Hinch help Slough sit top of indoor

Alex Scott in action for Slough in the Maxi5s indoor hockey 450x282

Alex Scott scored five goals to help keep Slough at the top of the women’s Maxinutrition Hockey 5s Championship Premier Division following day two’s action at Bromsgrove School on Sunday.

After hitting five goals in yesterday’s games, Scott picked up where she left off and inspired her side to a 5-0 win over East Grinstead with a hat-trick.

Slough scored five again in their second game, running out 5-1 victors over Sutton Coldfield, with Scott finding the net twice.

Bowdon Hightown stay second in the table after Sally Walton scored seven goals in their two matches, a 5-0 win over Olton and West Warwickshire and an 8-2 victory over Leicester.

Nikki Kidd is another player hitting top form. She scored an impressive six goals in Canterbury’s 11-4 win over Olton and West Warwickshire. She wasn’t done yet though, as she added another two to her tally in a 7-5 thriller against Harleston Magpies.

Reading are third in the table after scoring two convincing wins. They outclassed Harleston to win 4-0 in their first game but the best was yet to come as they put ten past East Grinstead. They had six different scorers in the 10-1 victory with Team GB star Helen Richardson-Walsh netting twice.

Despite losing out to Slough, Sutton Coldfield still have something to cheer about after edging out Leicester 3-2 in their other game, courtesy of two goals from Jen Parkinson-Mills.
