Hockey: Five-star City of Bath 2nds maintain promotion push with win over Yate
City of Bath men's 2nds maintained their promotion push in Davis Wood East Central 1 with a 5-1 victory over Yate A.
The returning Charlie Elias opened the scoring for City before a rapid team move that saw the ball travel the length of the field was finished off by Gary Ford.
Yate pulled one back but Dudley Bartlett netted from a short corner to make it 3-1. Ali Stone scored the next after a typically barnstorming Ben Batchelor-Wylam run and James Imeson put the icing on the cake with a far-post effort.
Andy Higgs helped himself to a hat-trick as City 3rds beat Wootton Bassett A 6-1 on Sunday.
