THE snow and ice saw all home games postponed for Yate Hockey Club, but they still had some away games to get stuck into over the weekend.

Yate Ladies 1

Saturday's snow hadn't reached Long Ashton and so Yate took on Old Bs 1.

The visitors started with intensity and created many chances before Zoe Vale pounced on a mistake at a Yate penalty corner to slot the ball home on the angle to give Yate the lead.

But they couldn't finish any other chances that half and Old Bs scored two on the counter to go into half-time 2-1 ahead.

The second half was more even but Yate were creating opportunities and eventually, they broke through when Kyishia Cooke beat the keeper having been played through.

More chances came and went and again, Yate defended penalty corners at the death, but both sides had to settle for a 2-2 draw. 

Yate Mens 1s

Yate started their match as darkness fell with a 6pm start away at University of Bristol 3s.

After plenty of wins in recent weeks, Yate had to settle for a 3-3 draw when the students equalised right at the end. Danny Pearce scored a brace and Dom Chambers was also on the score sheet for Yate. 

Yate Mens 2s

With Yate pushing for promotion, they travelled to one of their main rivals, Cardiff Uni Medics knowing a win would keep winning the league in their hands. But they couldn’t have started the game any worse finding themselves 3-0 down after 20 minutes.

But they did eventually settle and Yate's first goal came when Steve Mason threw a pinpoint aerial to Mike Chaney, who proceeded to beat two defenders and fire the ball into the bottom corner.

Yate quickly struck again, with club debutant Oscar Richards sliding the ball to team captain Chris Gay who fired past the onrushing keeper.

Yate then equalised through Martin Ashley after a well-worked move before they ran away with the contest in the closing stages. 

Man of the Match Oscar caused no end of problems and grabbed his first goal and brace for the club. Harris was leading the team with boundless energy and got a well-deserved goal, ensuring Yate won 6-3 and took home a critical 3 points. With two league games to go, the 2s aim to continue their hard work and team ethos to try and close out the season.
