Bowdon (1) 4 Southgate (1) 1 Bowdon moved comfortably to the semi-finals of the cup at the expense of Premier League rivals Southgate.

While the visitors had taken an early lead, by half-time Bowdon had exerted considerable pressure to score twice with goals from Adgey and Croke.

The second half followed much the same pattern, with Croke scoring again and the match being finished in delightful fashion with a fourth from Si Egerton.

Bowdon (0) 0 East Grinstead (3) 6 The visitors arrived with their full contingent of internationals and again turned in a stunning exhibition of quality hockey to ultimately run out as easy winners.

However, had Bowdon taken their chances, particularly in what was an even first half, the final score would have been much closer.

The EG team is of the highest quality and took advantage of every bit off loose play from the home team, moving seamlessly from defence to attack.

Robbie Turner in the home goal produced heroics, but could not stop everything that came at him.

The only consolation from the game is that the visitors would have beaten every other team in the country on the day, and with other results favouring the Bowdon team, the season is still wide open.
