WILMSLOW Hockey Club’s men travelled to Sheffield for the second consecutive week but this time came back with all three points in a 4-2 win against Sheffield UB.

Wilmslow took the lead after a series of short corners when Tom Davenport slipped the ball in at the near post after Martin Wright’s initial shot was saved.

The visitors used this as a springboard to get into their stride and began to dominate with their aggressive pressing helping to repeatedly win the ball in dangerous areas.

Wilmslow extended their lead twice before half time, firstly when Joe Booth finished smartly at the back post, before Pete Hallinan dispatched a penalty flick after Wright’s goalbound shot was illegally blocked.

Sheffield found their rhythm after half time, and after a short succession of corners reduced the deficit with a smart finish across goalkeeper Simon Pickering, who made a sharp save shortly afterwards but could do nothing to stop a rapid deflection from Sheffield’s Captain from flying into the top corner as Sheffield closed the gap to just one goal.

Wilmslow took the time to regain their composure and began to control the game again, and put the result beyond doubt then David Boddy tapped in from close range after good work by Jack Wright.

Wilmslow host Durham University in their final game of the season on Saturday, 1.30pm start.
