Epsom hit the eights to see off Chichester's challenge
Epsom Hockey Club blew away the opposition on Saturday in an extraordinary match of 12 goals at Therfield School.
But it was not until the 50th minute that Chichester finally capitulated to an 8-4 defeat, keeping Epsom second in Hants/Surrey Regional Division One.
Paul Atkinson, Bret Hosken and skipper James Midmer each bagged two goals, while Alex Pizzey and Steve Turnbull also got on the scoresheet.
Midmer said: “We deserved the win for some stylish attacking play, although we were slightly flattered by the final scoreline against strong opponents.”
Soon after the break, Epsom were leading 4-1, only for Chichester to get back to 4-3.
However, Turnbull’s strike for 5-3 knocked the stuffing out of the visitors.
Epsom go to Yateley this weekend.
