Sport Briefly / Hockey: Bamfield gives Ipswich a lift

Click to follow
Sarah Bamfield scored twice as Ipswich upheld the English challenge in the women's section of the European Club Championships with a 4-3 victory over CUS Catania, of Italy, in a game twice suspended as torrential rain made the conditions atrocious, writes Brian Tatlock from Bloemendaal, the Netherlands. But in the other half of the draw Scottish hopes were dented by a surprising 2- 0 defeat for Glasgow Western by the Lithuanians Taurus Eurovil, with the Scots squandering 16 penalty corners. In the men's competition, Hounslow came from behind to beat Racing Club, of France, 2-1. Nick Gordon scored their equaliser in the 17th minute from Rob Thompson's pass and three minutes later set up Thompson to give Hounslow a lead they defended after the break.
