The latest round of fixtures in the East Hockey League brought successes for both Blueharts and Stevenage.

The men's first team from the Hitchin club were rewarded for a 180-mile round trip to Norwich with a 2-0 win over University of East Anglia.

Goals from Sam Rees and Jack Floor keeps them third in the Premier Division.

The Ladies 1s were 3-2 winners over Cambridge City, moving to within a point of their opponents in the Women’s Premier Division ,while it was also a successful day for the two second teams.

Goals from Chloe Leutchford, Ally Antoniou, Lucy Nissen, Isla Watts, Kate Sherwood and Julie Rees gave the ladies an emphatic 6-1 win over Bishop's Stortford and the men also hit the same club for six, Jamie Williams scoring twice to keep them four points clear at the top of Division Two South West.

Jamie’s younger brother, Rory, also scored twice as the fifths beat Broxbourne 4-1, and was joined on the scoresheet by fellow youngsters Joel Davey and Oscar Whitley.

The ladies' thirds beat Royston 4-0, Josie Layton (three) and Kiki Arellano the scorers, and two goals from Will Hammond and one from Ben Phillipson saw the men's threes beat Southgate Adelaide 3-1.

The ladies fourths held top of the table Stortford to a 1-1 draw with Alice Winton on target.

The sixths lost at Rickmansworth, Izzy Marshall managing a consolation before the finish, and debutant Georgie Morey the player-of-the-match for the sevenths who won 3-2 at WGC.

Susie Powell, Imogen Ryden and Esme Thompson got the goals there while Niamh Krishman and Jo Mickleburgh helped the fifths to a 2-2 draw, also against Bishop's Stortford.

The men's sevenths drew 1-1 at Royston with Joe Grennell on target.

The men's and ladies' first teams of Stevenage went unbeaten but the biggest result of the day went to the men's second team who shared 13 goals with St Albans, winning 9-4.

The ladies beat struggling Welwyn Garden City 1-0 while the men had a 0-0 draw at Bedford.

Having scored 58 so far this season and conceded 56 this was a rare event but will be seen as a missed opportunity against the second from bottom hosts who have only won one this term.

The men's second team had no difficulty in finding the net, despite conceding four goals themselves.

They were top scorers in Division Four South West, beating Potters Bar who had eight and West Herts with seven.

The win puts Stevenage in fourth place, level with Blueharts fifths.

The ladies' fourth team produced a 3-2 win against Hertford while the third team had a 1-1 draw with St Albans and the second's and fifths both lost, 4-0 to Hertford and 5-0 to Welwyn Garden City respectively.
