Hounslow's 0-0 draw against Indian Gymkhana moved them a point ahead of Southgate at the top of the PizzaExpress National League First Division but they will regret their inability to turn tactical advantage into goals, writes Brian Tatlock. It was different at the only other game in the division where Richard Gibson scored three times in the first 23 minutes to steer East Grinstead to a 5-3 win against Canterbury. In Cologne England's men lost 8-5 to Rot-Weiss Cologne in their opening game of the Kuppers Kolsch Indoor Tournament. Balsam Leicester moved two points clear at the top of the women's Premier National League after Sue Holwell's 56th-minute penalty corner goal gave them a 1-0 win at Clifton. The leaders Slough were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Ipswich, and dropped to second place.
