Bristol & West Hockey Club finished the day on Saturday taking home 50% of the points with 4 wins, 4 defeats and a draw. Highlights included a couple of convincing wins for our Men's 1s and 5s with 19 goals put passed the opposition between them. Our Women's 1st XI kept their undefeated run going with an important 1-1 draw against the league toppers to keep them in the running in a typically tight division. No such luck for our Men's 2s, who recorded their first defeat against an in-form Cardiff & Met side.
