SEVEN teams represented Yate Hockey Club over the weekend in what was a busy weekend of action.

Yate Ladies 1s

Yate produced their best win of the season on Saturday, despite only having one substitute, when they hosted Westberries 1.

Yate were 1-0 up within 90 seconds. Di Pugh-Hudson was dispossessed but won the ball back and passed to player of the match Chloe W. Chloe had plenty to do but calmly slotted home under the keeper. 

Yate Men's 1

Yate secured another impressive win when they travelled to Keynsham 1 and emerged 4-1 victors. Yate scored all the goals, with two for Dom Chambers one each for Danny Pearce and Nicky Perry-Gough and an own goal.

Yate Ladies 2

Yate had a tough afternoon at Royal Wootton Bassett 1s, emerging on the wrong side of a 6-1 scoreline. Yate's goal was scored by Kim Harris. 

Yate Mens 2

Yate started off strong scoring two goals in the first eight minutes through Parrot and Haggis. Simon added a third 10 minutes before half-time to make it 3-0.

It took 20 minutes into the second half for the fourth to arrive when Pab tapped in off the post. Mike Chainey made a run into the D and a strong strike made it 5-0 before Haggis topped off the afternoon with goal number six. Yate remain second in the table, three points off the top.

Yate Ladies 3

The match started quickly with both teams having chances, but it took a while for the deadlock to be broken. It was Yate who scored first with a goal from Alexandra Bessex. BAPs scored soon after with the score level at 1-1 at half-time.

After the break, both teams were looking for the win. It was Yate who went ahead with a well-worked ball in from S Macdonald to Clare Kane who put the ball in the net.

Despite their best efforts, Yate were unable to maintain the lead and therefore dropped points with a BAPs equaliser from another penalty corner.

Yate Mixed

Yate entertained local rivals Bristol and West in round 3 of the EHA Mixed Plate competition on Sunday and after a dominant start, took the lead when youngster Vale-Webb added the finishing touches to a brilliant Yate move.

It was a similar pattern in the second-half, with Yate putting B&W under enormous pressure but they received a set back when B&W equalised following a penalty corner.

But Yate continued to press and with five minutes remaining, Rosie Belcher and Vale-Webb set up Gamlin, who scored with a superb reverse shot into the roof of the net.

Captain Milo Young then set up Vale-Webb for a tap-in to seal the victory by 3-1.
