A round-up of the latest matches involving Havering Hockey Club teams

Havering men’s firsts collected an impressive victory in East Premier B as they eased to a 6-1 success at West Herts seconds.

A well-worked move found Paul Dover who, after a little wobble, put the ball into the net to give the visitors the lead.

Harry Andrews and Alex Defroand both netted before the break to give Havering a 3-0 advantage at half-time.

An early goal in the second half gave the visitors further breathing space, but Havering will have been disappointed to have allowed West Herts to score to make it 4-1.

The visitors, though, resisted any further fightback by scoring two more goals, with Dover, Defroand and Sunni Singh netting the second-half strikes for Havering.

The men’s firsts will hope to build on that win on Saturday when they host City of Peterborough seconds in the league.

Havering’s women’s firsts, however, were unfortunate in defeat as they lost 4-2 at home to Kings & Alleyns in East Two South East.

Despite missing a few of their regular players, Havering started strongly and led 2-0 at half-time through a Sue Hardwood brace.

However, Kings produced a storming recovery in the second half to triumph, much to the disappointment of the home team.

Havering women’s firsts will hope to bounce back on Saturday when they make the trip to Sevenoaks thirds.

There was also disappointment for the women’s seconds as they lost 2-1 at Braintree firsts despite an Alex Semon goal.

Havering men’s seconds were also beaten as they went down 3-0 on their trip to Witham seconds.

The women’s thirds were beaten 2-1 at home to Braintree seconds, while the women’s fourths had to concede their game against Waltham Forest fifths owing to a number of players being unavailable.

Havering men’s thirds lost 3-2 on their trip to Saffron Walden fifths, but there was better news for the fourths who won 4-0 at home to London Royals.

The fourths scored twice in each half to secure what was ultimately a comfortable win over Royals.
