Big wins for top sides

The top hockey sides in men’s Division One made it two wins out of two in emphatic style on Saturday.

Reigning champions Bacchas A went on the rampage to demolish Castletown A 14-0, while arch rivals Valkyrs A hit Vikings A for six.

Karl Moore led the Bacchas’ rout with four goals.

Richard Le Page hit a hat-trick, Jamie Cox added a double and there were further goals from Gareth Craig, James Wright, Robin Perrie, John Rimmer and Pete Hodgson.

Meanwhile, the westerners thrashed Vikings A 6-1, thanks to doubles from Neil Jacobs, Chris Thomas and Chris Caldwell.

Ramsey A maintained their 100 per cent start with a 2-0 victory over Vikings B – James Atchison and Dan Stevens the scorers.

However, perhaps the result of the day saw Bacchas B see off Saracens in a nine goal thriller with a team comprising fully of players under the age of 18.

Doubles from Glen Bloxham-Mundy and Danny Shuttleworth, and a Ben Kelly strike, secured victory and possibly made Manx hockey history in the process.

Saracens’ scorers were Anton Bolton, Steve Cottier, John Hargen and Johnny Killey.

It was a similar story in women’s Division One with champions Bacchas A defeating Castletown A 5-1.

Niamh Goddard (two), Donna Harrison (two) and Kelly Shimmin were the scorers with Kate Sutton netting the Town consolation.

And Vikings A showed their talent by thrashing Phoenix 9-0.

Kim Carney, Zoe Carney and Kirsty Hunt all scored twice against a Phoenix side which played the entire match with 10 players.

Elsewhere, Ali Breen hit four as Ramsey A were 6-1 winners over Valkyrs B, while Valkyrs A saw off Harlequins 2-0.
