East Norfolk Sixth Form College men's hockey team made progress in the National Cup with a 5-0 victory away to South Notts College.

South Notts were stopped only by some sterling early defending from the back four, and some acrobatic saves by goalkeeper Owen Shuttleworth.

From a short corner. the ball went to Craig Snelling at the top of the D, who hammered a stunning finish into the backboard.

With runs from winger Tim Bentley and central midfielder Alex Kleyn, East Norfolk had two more chances which culminated in both Andrew Devereux and Meneghello hitting the post. Just before half-time a weaving run from Kleyn created space for Elliot Gooch to take a pass into the danger zone and pull off an amazing reverse-stick shot which flew past the astonished defenders and a goalkeeper.

In the second half, a ball to Devereux at the top of the Notts' D enabled him to create space to finish with a lifted strike. Another cross went to Snelling, who put it through to Tom Strachan whose push saw the goalkeeper beaten again to put East Norfolk in front

by four.
