Rich cashes in as Admirals impress
BUCCS MEN Rich Warwick's double helped Team Bath Buccs Admirals C defeat Davis Wood League Central 1 promotion chasers Minehead 4-2.
The hosts were taken by surprise by the quality of Admirals' hockey and the goals quickly followed, with Warwick tapping in a high ball after the Minehead keeper deflected a Steve George strike.
Mike Du Boulay rounded off the move of the match, involving Luke Emerson and Marcus Harris, to double Buccs' lead before Warwick scored his second with a well-struck shot from the top of the D.
Minehead hit back from a short corner but Admirals added another before the break, George skinning the visiting keeper before smashing the ball into the roof of the net. The away side pulled another goal back late on but Admirals took the points to restore confidence ahead of their trip to ECV Hornets.

They still trail their Pirates club-mates in the table, however, after the D team defeated Taunton Vale B 7-2.
Buccs Vikings E came up against a more experienced and organised Robinsons B side and went down 5-2. Fairweather and Peters scored for Buccs, who failed to take some clear-cut chances.
Ancient Mariners F drew 1-1 at Wootton Bassett A despite fielding a scratch side.
Some brilliant keeping from Martin Bray foiled Bassett but he could do nothing to prevent their opening goal. The visitors improved, though, and Menezes' close-range finish restored parity at the break.
The second half saw a complete turnaround, with Mariners proving their mettle and man of the match Harry Fuller causing plenty of problems. Although Buccs could not find a winner, the result extended their unbeaten run to five matches.
Blades G ran out 5-2 winners over a young Devizes A team.
After Devizes took the lead, Malthouse took time out from his defensive duties to claim a hat-trick of penalty corner conversions.
The Gs' lead was extended by Sandey, who twice scored with deft touches from open play.
