Teams continue tussle for supremacy
Fareham Hockey Club from England had much reason to celebrate after capturing their first win at the 31st edition of the Barbados Hockey Festival played Wednesday at Kensington Oval.
The visitors came up against home side Barbados Defence Force (BDF) in Men’s B action around 9 a.m. and came out on top with a convincing 3-0 win.
That was followed by two women’s games starting with Maple who defeated BDF 7-1 in the ‘A’ grouping and in the second Women’s A match-up Raptors and Fareham ladies played to a 0-0 draw.
At the Usain Bolt Sports Complex, University of the West Indies Blackbirds, playing at home, trounced Du Badd Crew 3-1 in Men’s ‘B’ action. In a Mixed ‘B’ showdown UWI Blackbirds and A Badd Connection played aggressively looking for a victory but the game ended in stalemate.
Meanwhile in the veterans game Maple and Dutch Caribbean Stars played to a 1-1 draw.
