Mixed weekend for Kent sides

Bottom of the table Canterbury held leaders Surbiton to a 1-1 draw in the Investec Women’s Hockey League Premier Division as their battle to avoid relegation continued.

Canterbury, who have now drawn six of their 12 games so far this season, opened the scoring through Grace Balsdon in the 23rd minute, only for Rebecca Middleton to tie the scores after the break.

Two sides with play-off hopes, Holcombe and East Grinstead faced off and it was Holcombe that moved up to third with a 1-0 win.

The contest looked to be heading for a 0-0 draw but Joanne Westwood struck from a penalty corner in the last few seconds of the game to snatch the points.

Second faced third in the Investec Conference East with Sevenoaks hosting Wimbledon, and it was the visitors who came away with a 5-2 victory thanks to goals from Crista Cullen, Laura Bevan, Libby Sherriff, Fiona Bruce and Eliza Brett.
