A round-up of the latest matches involving East London hockey club
Braces from Henry Emery and John Lyness helped East London men’s firsts record an emphatic 4-1 win at Long Sutton in East Division One.
Emery gave the visitors the lead early on when cleaning up a fairly scrappy short corner, and the first half was seen out pretty comfortably with the score 1-0.
Goals from Lyness and Emery took East to 3-0 within the first five minutes of the restart, putting the game pretty much out of Long Sutton’s reach.
There was a glimmer of hope for Long Sutton when they converted a breakaway goal, but East remained in control before Lyness grabbed his second goal from the penalty spot to complete the win.
