HOCKEY: Norton's strike is decisive

Witney Gazette: Lucy Reading scored Witney Ladies' opener in the 2-1 win against Oxford Hawks Lucy Reading scored Witney Ladies' opener in the 2-1 win against Oxford Hawks

Witney Ladies kept up the pressure on South Clubs Women’s League, Division 3A leaders Oxford Hawks, with a 2-1 win at home to Sonning on Saturday.

After a slow start, Witney took the lead when a cross from Marie Vincent found Lucy Reading, who slotted home.

However, sloppy defending allowed Sonning to level.

After the break, though, Witney got their act together and got the winner when Ellie Norton deflected home a hard, low shot from captain Katie Gatt.

Witney Men went bottom of Middx, Berks, Bucks and Oxon Regional 1 after a 5-1 home defeat by Ashford. Liam Frost replied.

Witney 2nd lost 2-1 at Sonning 4th in Division, with Ryan Moore on target.

Witney 3rd were relegated to Division 6 following a 10-2 thrashing by West Hampstead 6th. Triv Trivett and Ben Austin netted for Witney.

Witney 4th lost 4-0 against Newbury & Thatcham 4th in Division 9.

But with seemingly no relegation from the division they are safe from the drop.
