A DAVE Eakins double on Sunday gave Hampstead & Westminster a 2-1 win over Sevenoaks and sent them into the EHA Cup final for the first time in their history.

The Paddington Rec club, who beat Sevenoaks just 24 hours after their gruelling trip to Manchester for a league game, will now face Beeston at the Nottingham club's home ground on Saturday May 15.

Eakins scored either side of the break to see off Sevenoaks in the semi-final - having already netted a priceless winner two minutes from time in the league clash at Brooklands the previous day.

That kept alive H&W's chances of reaching the play-offs, and to do so they must overhaul fifth-placed Loughborough Students, who have the same number of points but a better goal difference by four.

Coach Todd Williams said: "I am just delighted for the blokes. We have really turned it around since Christmas."

WEST Hampstead's fate hangs in the balance after a 2-2 draw at Barnes and they must win their last two games to be certain of staying up.

Skipper Jamie Dru and Rob Frampton were the scorers for the Brent Cross side.
