HOCKEY: Amersham trip proves a nightmare
6:48pm Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Sport
Witney 3rd had a day to forget as their MBB&O Division 5 game away to Amer-sham & Chalfont was abandoned whne two of their players were badly injured.
Forced to start with only nine after three players failed to make it due to car problems, Witney shipped 5-0 goal without reply.
They were reduced to seven players due to serious injuries to Will Briggs, who was hit in the face by the ball and Richard Demczek who was rapped across the knees.
That caused the game to be abandoned, with the victory awarded to the hosts.
Witney men’s woes at the foot of Regional Division 1 continued as they were thrashed 6-0 at PHC Chis-wick.
Tom Yallop scored a double as Witney 2nd drew 3-3 at home to Brunel University in Division 4.
Craig Summers was their other scorer.
Witney 4th crashed to 3-0 defeat at home to Thame 2nd in Division 9.
