Draw for Avengers, Empire

MASSY UNITED Insurance Empire and Avengers Field battled to an entertaining 1-1 draw as action in the 2015 BHF Hockey 7s League continued at the UWI Hockey Turf over the weekend.

It was Avengers who drew first blood in just the first minute as Gabrielle Williams caught the Empire defence napping and, after rounding custodian Sheena Nicholls, stumbled and fell but still had enough momentum going forward to ensure the ball crossed the line.

With the pressure now squarely on the lasses from Bank Hall, they responded in a manner truly befitting champions – but from the unlikeliest of sources.

In a team comprising stalwarts Charlia Warner and Patrina “Pixie” Brathwaite, it was the unheralded Aleina Stanford who restored parity with a strong finish in the eighth minute.
