Hockey: Double fault for Teddington

Click to follow
The weekend's double-header League games were a disaster for last season's Premier runners-up, Teddington, and near disaster for the League champions, Reading.

Reading, who went down 4-0 away to Canterbury on Saturday, were yesterday trailing 3-1 at home to Old Loughtonians when the Old Boys had their Scottish international David Ralph suspended, allowing Reading to score twice in five minutes through Mark Collison and Scott Ashdown.

Teddington, destroyed by a Brett Gillmon hat-trick on Saturday when they fell 6-1 to Hounslow, lost 7-2 to a Southgate side who took their chances, with Adrian Simons scoring three times and Pietro Attala, who netted twice in the 3-2 win away to East Grinstead on Saturday, collecting another brace.
