UEL’s men’s hockey team maintained their good form with victory over King’s College London at Lee Valley.

Buoyed by their fantastic win at Honor Oak Park a week earlier, they quickly found their rhythm and solid play in midfield allowed UEL to keep the pressure on their rivals.

Good defensive work denied the visitors any clear sight of goal at the other end, nullifying the King’s counter attacks, as the first half ended scoreless.

UEL’s half-time team-talk focused on remaining patient, staying disciplined and building pressure and their persistence paid off when captain Michael Crossley broke the deadlock from a short corner.

The home side doubled their advantage nine minutes from time when Joe Nelmes netted and although King’s claimed a goal from a short corner of their own, it was too little, too late, as UEL had already done enough to seal the points.

Crossley said: “It was another fantastic performance from the lads. It’s brilliant to see how much we have improved from the start of this season – let’s continue this run of form!”
