Down to the Wire!

The Women's Ones can still reach the summit as we chases top 4 finishes elsewhere....

So everything is still to play for in both the Women’s and Men’s leagues. It’s down to the wire for the Women’s ones as a first place finish remains so, so close and the women’s twos moved into fourth place in the league. Despite a disappointing result at Newmarket, the men’s Ones can still achieve fourth, as can the Men’s twos following a good win.

The Women's first team remain two points off first palace following a frustrating 1- 1 draw against fourth placed Sudbury - with one game to go they will need a win at Fram; and Harleston to draw or lose to reach the summit and what would be a fantastic achievement. Having scored 25 goals more than any other team, it would be well deserved - so fingers crossed! The Women’s twos had a satisfying 4 -2 win over local rivals Ipswich to move into 4th position on goal difference. A top 4 finish would represent a great reward for such a second half of the season performance - so here’s hoping for a win over Fram twos!. Regrettably, the Women’s threes had to concede their game against Castaways as we struggled for players but can still finish 8th next Saturday - another creditable performance. They face Christchurch in their final fixture.

It was a case of mixed results for the me: The men’s ones came away from Newmarket with a disappointing 4 - 1 loss, despite 9 short corners and a P.flick as well as several goal chances. Even so, though currently 5th, 4th place beckons if they overcome Norwich Dragons and gain points from the postponed home fixture with Dereham - with good player availability, they are more than capable of moving up a place. The men’s twos had a comfortable 5 - 2 win at BSE and are now 5th behind N.Norfolk on goal difference - 4th or even 3rd place is possible if results go their way on the 23rd! The Men’s thirds travelled with a much weakened side to BSE and came away without any points - something they’ll no doubt put right on the final day! However, they remain 8 points clear of second place Cranes, with a game in hand. The Men’s fours lost 5-1 away at Ipswich but again played some good hockey with our young players again to the fore.

So there’s so much still to play for and we would welcome all the support we can get this coming weekend with the added bonus of the Men’s ones BBQ and Beer Pong evening to follow - it should be good!
