Men’s EHL Ranking Cup
Hampstead & Westminster 4 (M Guise-Brown, J Kelly, M Ramshaw, J Sharp) Three Rock Rovers 1 (J Hosking)
Three second quarter goals put Hampstead & Westminster on course for a strong 4-1 win to earn a share of 13th place overall from the men’s ABN AMRO EHL Ranking Cup with Three Rock Rovers ending 17th.
While Hampstead & Westminster had the best of the play, Rovers had the better chances of the early phases with James Walker’s corner touch well blocked by Toby Reynolds-Cotterill. But the Londoners went in front in the 17th minute when Matt Guise-Brown nailed his side’s second penalty corner.
Josh Kelly doubled up within a minute when he followed up from a Conor Quinn save; Matt Ramshaw took over the flicking duties for their third corner and duly made it 3-0.
Rovers, meanwhile, got on the board via Jody Hosking’s pin-point reverse-stick shot which picked out the bottom corner, 3-1 at half-time.
As the rain continued to pour, H&W had a series of corners but could not find a route through Ben Whelan who made a quartet of confident saves. Rovers, though, were enjoying their best phase when they were caught by a sucker-punch as Joe Sharp got off the turf quickly to slip home from close quarters.
