Holcombe beat Club Junior to win the EuroHockey Club Trophy

By Luke Cawdell

Holcombe Ladies clinched the EuroHockey Club Trophy in Dublin on Monday after a shootout win.

The Rochester-based side topped their group and then beat Spanish side Club Junior in the final.

It was a fourth victory in four days for Holcombe with Beth Bingham scoring the decisive goal in the shootout with a super lobbed effort.

Leah Wilkinson had put Holcombe ahead in the final but the Spaniards levelled early on in the third period.

The game finished one apiece but Holcs held their nerve in the shootout, thanks to goals from Steph Elliott, Sarah Jones, Ellie Watton and Beth Bingham, winning it 4-2.

On the Sunday they had beaten Czech side Slavia Prague 7-0, with Leisa Randall scoring a hat-trick in the victory.

Prior to that they had enjoyed a 4-2 victory over Belarus side Ritm Grodno, Jones scoring twice in that game. They had begun the tournament with a 4-0 victory over Ukranian outfit Sumchanka, scoring through Heather McEwan, Philippa Lewis, Bingham and Elliott.
