Hockey: Fareham fall foul of Dodds and Co
Tuesday 01 December 1998
In a devastating opening spell, Beckenham went three goals up. A sensational fourth-minute goal from Simon Hughes paved the way: collecting the ball outside the 25-yard area, he drove powerfully into the Fareham circle and let fly a screamer into the roof of the net.
Michael Dodds cashed in with a couple of goals and shell- shocked Fareham were struggling. Picking themselves up, they took the game to Beckenham but were let down by a woeful penalty-corner drill. It was not until their 15th penalty corner that Jim Moseley scored a consolation.
Despite not winning a single corner, Beckenham are now in second place having closed the gap to Fareham to three points with a game in hand. Winchester moved into third with a 2-0 win against Herne Bay, James Wakely scoring twice.
Cambridge University, held to a 3-3 draw by Crostyx, also lost their 100 per-cent record, in the Premier Holidays East Premier. In the North, Sheffield Bankers took over the leadership on goal difference from Formby. Edgbaston, in spite of only drawing with Coventry & North Warwick, held their place at the top in the DTZ Midlands Premier.
