The Northwood 1st hockey team claimed a 1 – 0 victory against a tough, determined St Albans team on Sunday.
Northwood dominated the first half creating the majority of the scoring chances. Some brilliant goal keeping from the St Albans keeper saw the teams deadlocked at the half time break.
The second half continued in the same way but Northwood eventually scored their seventh penalty corner through Dale van der Merwe after a well worked variation.
Northwood had an opportunity to take a 2 – 0 lead with a minute to play through a penalty stroke but the St Albans goal keeper saved brilliantly to keep the final score at 1 – 0.
