Captain Dan seals success
8:00am Saturday 20th October 2012 in Local
HOCKEY: A battling performance saw Kidderminster men’s first team make it back-to-back wins in West Midlands Division One as they saw off Leamington 2-1.
Goals for Marcus Claytor and a composed finish from captain Daniel Mazurek was enough to seal a deserved win in Warwickshire.
But they had to battle from behind in the second-half after a slightly below-par first period.
On Saturday, they travel to the Dell Stadium to take on strong-starting Kingswinford.
The seconds then saw off table-topping Leamington 2-1.
Bolstered by the return of Simon Burkes the home team dominated the early exchanges but it was the visitors who broke the deadlock in the second-half.
Gary Mills immediately struck back and Phil Williams scored the winner from a short corner. Fourteen-year-old Oliver Kay was man-of-the-match.
The thirds edged out Aldridge fourths 3-2. Gary Mills opened the scoring before Nick Dorrel grabbed the second.
A goal either side of half-time saw Aldridge back on level terms, but a run down the right side of the pitch by new boy Tom Westwood followed by a pass to the middle saw Ed Allen slot home the winner for Kidderminster.
Meanwhile, Stourport men went down 7-1 at home to Barford Tigers in the Midlands Premier Division.
They go to Northampton Saints on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Kari Smith and Sue Howard scored as Kidderminster Ladies saw off Bromsgrove 2-1.
