Canterbury’s men breezed into the semi-finals of the Maxifuel Super Sixes National Indoor Hockey Championships after a superb showing in the Premier Division at Burton at the weekend.
The city club beat Surbiton 10-5 in their opening game on Saturday with Ben Allberry scoring four and he added a double in a 9-3 win over previous leaders Beeston in their second game. Devohn Teixeria grabbed a hat-trick.
Allberry notched another four goals to help secure an 8-3 win over Old Loughtonians and the forward completed a stellar day with a hat-trick in the 6-4 win over Doncaster which made it six wins and a draw from Canterbury’s eight matches.
The city club will face East Grinstead – who finished three points behind them in fourth place – in the last four clash at Wembley Arena on January 27, with the winner facing Reading or Beeston in the final.
There was, however, disappointment for Canterbury’s women who finished fifth, missing out on a place at Finals Day.
Sarah Kerly’s hat-trick against Sutton Coldfield at Bromsgrove School on Saturday was in vain as Canterbury lost 6-3, while Lucy Hyams scored twice against University of Birmingham but three late goals in as many minutes earned the students a 4-3 win.
A 5-2 defeat against reigning champions Leicester followed on Sunday before a 4-0 reverse to Bowdon sealed their fate, finishing six points adrift of fourth-place.
