The ladies’ fourth team led the way in another busy weekend for St Albans Hockey Club.
A solitary goal from Sara Robinson was enough to give them their first win of the season away to Royston.
The sixths won 4-0 at Saffron Walden, Jess Norris, Georgia Hines, Tara Cairns and Cat Jacques all on target, and the sevenths carried their fine form from last week with a 3-1 success at Shefford & Sandy.
Lucy Schalkwyck, Fiona Coope and Emma Furness were the scorers in that one.
There was a draw for the fifths, 0-0 with Bishop’s Stortford, but the firsts, seconds, thirds and Bodacias all lost out in close games.

Goals from Amy Kokkinos and Molly Hobson had the first team drawing 2-2 at half-time against Hampstead & Westminster but a third goal in the second-half gave the victory to the Londoners.
The seconds lost 4-3 to Sudbury, Annie Barratt getting two and Millie Fleming one.

The thirds were unlucky not to get anything out of their trip to West Herts, losing 2-1 despite Emily Catlow putting them ahead, and the same score did for the Bodacias against Chiltern, Lou Jackson their scorer.
The men’s first team had a day to forget as they lost 7-0 at London Wayfarers.
