Hockey: Frustration for Teddington
Sunday 12 April 1998
It was a frustrating day for Teddington in the men's European Cup-Winners' Cup in Den Bosch yesterday, writes Brian Tatlock. They saw their dreams of a final appearance tomorrow disappearing when the German umpire Klaus Pelzer allowed a ball deflected high into the circle to be volleyed over goalkeeper Jon Ebsworth by Samuel Gevorkian for a 1-0 victory with just 40 seconds remaining of a dour game in which Teddington had failed to break down a packed Ekaterinburg defence. At Southgate, Slough had a second comfortable win in the women's European Club championship at Southgate beating Lorenzoni from Italy 4-0 but will need to win today in their final pool match against the Dutch club HGC from Wassenar to reach the final tomorrow. Jane Smith gave Slough the lead in the 14th minute and Karen Brown converted a penalty stroke for Slough's second. Mandy Nicholls scored early in the second half and Slough added a fourth late on from Alison Burd. In the other pool Edinburgh, inspired by a dynamic performance from Rhona Simpson, produced a dramatic revival to beat Kolos Borispol from the Ukraine 3-1. Trailing at half-time to a superb reverse stick shot by Elena Razoutova, Edinburgh came back through a penalty stroke by Janet Jack and two penalty corner goals by Val Neil.
