Hockey: High-flying Tunbridge Wells men extend lead at the top

Hockey: Tunbridge Wells held as Allberry's strike is cancelled out

TUNBRIDGE WELLS stretched their lead to five points at the top of South Premier League Division Two with a convincing second-half at Kent College.

Two early goals for the home side should have set the pattern – with Ben Allberry and Ben Brandt on target.

But Wells took their foot off the gas and lapses in concentration saw the visitors find two goals to level the match.

The first half finished in better fashion for Wells, however, as Brandt scored from a tight angle to restore the lead.

After the break Sam George tormented the opposition with quick hands.

Brandt fired home from a well-worked short corner, and Chris Pelmore did the same to secure a three-goal cushion.

Allberry scored his second with a trademark reverse stick rocket, and Kyle Mathieson finished a well worked move.

Now Wells face a trip to second-placed Wycombe on Saturday [November 18].
