HAMPSTEAD and Westminster dropped to eighth place in the EHL Premier League after losing to both Beeston and Loughborough Students in their weekend double-header.

H&W made a perfect start at Beeston on Saturday, with skipper Dan Fox netting from open play in the third minute, but two penalty corners from Andrew Monte meant they trailed 2-1 at half-time.

Martin Jones made it 3-1 early in the second half and, although Ian Roberts cut the deficit with a penalty corner, goals from David Griffiths and Adam Dixon sealed a 5-2 win for the home side.

It was a similar story when H&W returned to Paddington Rec on Sunday, with David Eakins' eighth-minute penalty corner putting the home side in front before Nick Catlin equalised for Loughborough.

Simon Faulkner gave the visitors the lead early in the second half, only for Eakins to score his second of the contest from a penalty corner - but Richard Smith clinched the points with a late winner.

WEST Hampstead ended their four-match losing streak with a gutsy 2-1 win over Oxford Hawks in Saturday's South League Division Two clash at Brent Cross.

Despite winning a batch of short corners, WH were unable to capitalise and it wasn't until early in the second half that Ben Harrison broke the deadlock from a short corner.

Ron Armstrong then doubled the lead, cutting through the Oxford defence and blasting home, but Freddie Poppin pulled a goal back for the visitors to ensure a tense finish.
