Good opening day for Andover Hockey
Andover Hockey Club took their place in the next round of the Hampshire Cup after their reshaped side won the four team tournament on Saturday.
They drew 2-2 with a very experienced Winchester in their first game and after an extremely tiring game with Basingstoke they were slightly unsatisfied with a 1-1 draw. Fleet were next and Andover put in a superb performance to win 4-0 before going into their last game against Aldershot needing a five goal advantage to win the tournament.
The squad put in a fantastic performance to take the game 6-0 to progress through to the next round of the Hampshire Cup.
Andover Ladies 2 Horsham 1.
Andover Ladies began their first season in the South League Division 3b with a convincing win over Horsham. Although the scoreline was tight Andover dominated, showing great determination and drive and they hassled the Horsham team putting pressure on the ball at every opportunity. Ellie Ingram and captain Anika Drage found Jacqui West who fired home as Andover dominated the half with Lizzie Vincent and Rhea Li working tirelessly in midfield.
The second half proved equally convincing with the second goal coming from a Freya Haigh penalty corner to Lizzie Vincent who deflected it in. Only an impressive performance from the travelling goalkeeper kept them out and Andover were unlucky to concede a goal in the closing minutes but feel really positive about their performance at this new level.
