HOCKEY Capper caps it for Formby
Monday 13 March 1995
BY BILL COLWILL
Phil Capper is often on the Formby scoresheet, but is unlikely to have scored a more important goal than his flick at a penalty corner yesterday just six minutes from time, which gave the non-National League club a 1-0 win against Second Division Richmond and a place in the HA Cup semi- finals, where they will be joined by Guildford, Isca, and the cup holders, Teddington.
It was a dour game at Southgate where a penalty-corner goal separated the sides to take Teddington, the league leaders, a step nearer the double.
Two goals from Danny Hall and one each from Rob Bilsland and Richard Markham gave Guildford a comfortable 4-1 win against Barford Tigers. First- half goals from Clive O'Sullivan and Rob Skinner put Isca on the winning road at Exeter, and although Cannock pulled one back just after the interval, the Devon side hung on to their lead.
In a reduced league programme, Reading beat Trojans 4-0 to move into second place. In the Second Division, St Albans, who beat Sheffield 3-2, are now two points clear with two games in hand. Oxford University were the day's top scorers, with a 7-2 win over Cambridge City.
