Southgate suffer another defeat
Thursday, 20 November 2014
SOUTHGATE slumped to their third successive defeat in the Premier Division of the NOW: Pension’s Men’s Hockey League on Saturday as they were beaten 5-0 at home by Beeston.
Having generally competed well since making their return to the top flight this season, Southgate have now endured a slump in form and they were comprehensively outplayed in this match.
Samuel Ward opened the scoring on five minutes, and the same player added the third in the 26th minute to leave Beeston in complete control after Gordon McIntyre had doubled their advantage.
The visitors continued to hold the upper hand in the second half, and further goals from Richard Lawrence and James Gall wrapped up their comfortable triumph.
However, Southgate – who remain in seventh place in the table – did keep their Men’s Cup hopes alive by securing a 2-1 win at home to Barford Tigers on Sunday.
Southgate entertain Brooklands on Sunday (2.30pm).
