Royston II 6 West Herts V 1
SIX separate scorers helped Royston pick up where they had left off at the end of 2008 with a comfortable win.
Fielding a strong squad Royston dominated the early stages and were rewarded with a goal from Nick Broadley who slotted home from a penalty corner.
They soon increased their lead when Matt Allsopp flicked the ball past the keeper into the net but the crows didn't have it all their own way and West Herts eventually clawed a goal back.
Royston responded with a flurry of chances with forward Perry Noble especially effective down the right flank and they eventually made it three towards the end of the half when Nick Freeman fired home.
The second half saw the game open up and this played into Royston's hands, leading to the fourth as Mike Hill scored from close range.
Man-of-the-match Mark Jacobs scored the goal of the day when he sealed an all round excellent performance and as the match came to a close Broadley found himself in the opposition D and coolly fired home to make it six.
Royston IV 3
Winchmore Hill and Enfield III 2
ROYSTON wracked up the same 3-2 result as was between the two teams when they last met in September, although Winchmore has developed since then into a stronger outfit.
Royston soaked up pressure in the first few minutes before Paul Bloomfield scored from a penalty corner five minutes after the start.
After 25 minutes Colin Bateman passed into the D to Nigel Phillips whose parried shot fell to Bloomfield for the simplest of tap ins.
The second half saw Royston continued to dominate and Phillips got on the scoresheet after 11 minutes when his soft shot went past both keeper and defender.
Winchmore then scored from a penalty corner and got a second six minutes later, but Royston were able to hold out for the win.
