Hockey: Maximum joy for Reading and Barford
Monday 14 October 1996
After a 2-0 win against Southgate on Saturday, Reading were again in impressive form yesterday, trouncing an indifferent Hounslow 5-0. The England Under-21 players, Mark Pearn and Manpreet Kochar, each scored twice with New Zealander Grant Edwards icing the cake.
Barford came from behind at Surbiton on Saturday with two late goals from Satpal Degun to win 2-1 and yesterday took the points by the same score against leaders Old Loughtonians.
Canterbury and Cannock shared eight goals with leading goalscorer Bobby Crutchley collecting a couple for the Midland club. Tom White claimed the day's only hat-trick, scoring three times in Stourport's 7-1 win against Crostyx in spite of having a penalty stroke saved.
