Bucks put in a fab display, for no points
Evergreens II 1, Old Buckenham II 2
HOCKEY: Despite travelling to Holt and putting in a fantastic performance Old Buckenham's result will not count this week.
Having beaten the Evergreens already this season Bucks arrived in a confident mood but the failure of Old Buckenhams umpire to arrive at the game saw the points automatically awarded to Evergreens.
Instead of cancelling the game, both teams decided to play the fixture as a friendly. The result was an evenly- matched encounter where both teams were given lots of opportunity to play some excellent hockey. Sophie Rodger, in the Old Buckenham defence, was outstanding, giving very little opportunity for Evergreens to break into the Old Buckenham defensive circle. Vicky Holland and Maddy Anderson both played important roles in the Bucks midfield creating lots of chances and switching the ball well to an on form Siobhan Thompson on the right wing. Susan Lansdell was on target again scoring both of Old Buckenham goals. PoM: Sophie Rodger.
