Hampstead & Westminster women’s firsts maintained their perfect start to the Investec Conference East season with a 6-3 win at home to St Albans.

Top took on bottom in the clash at Paddington Recreation Ground on Saturday afternoon, as leaders Hampstead welcomed their Hertfordshire rivals.

Hot favourites Hampstead didn’t have it all their own way though. Amy Askew put the home team in front after nine minutes, but St Albans equalised before Askew put her second away before half time, making it 2-1 at the break.

Table-topping Hampstead were hoping to solidify their lead, but it was St Albans that came out of half time firing, and with 44 minutes on the clock converted a penalty corner to tie the game at 2-2.

The goal kick-started Hampstead with wave after wave of attacks on the St Albans defence.

Annabel Driver neatly converted three penalty corners in just 19 minutes to put the game beyond St Albans, who pulled a consolation goal back before Joyce Esser sealed a 6-3 win for the hosts with a penalty stroke in the final minute of the game.

The win makes it five from five for Hampstead and sees them retain top spot in the league with a superior goal difference over Sevenoaks, who have also had a 100 per cent start.

Hampstead travel to Cambridge City on Saturday for what could be their toughest test of the campaign so far this season.

The men’s firsts, meanwhile, suffered a 4-2 loss away to Beeston in the Premier Division.

Mark Gleghorne opened the scoring for Beeston from a short corner after just four minutes, but Chris Cargo levelled for the visitors nine minutes later.

Gleghorne had his second of the afternoon on 23 minutes, before Adam Dixon doubled the Beeston lead soon after.

Hampstead skipper Toby Roche reduced the arrears before the break to make it 3-2 going into half time.

Hampstead made life very hard for a resurgent Beeston team, but couldn’t pull the game back into their favour.

With minutes left on the clock, Hampstead gambled by taking off the keeper to give them an extra outfield player, but the gamble didn’t pay off as Beeston were scored through Sam Ward.

Hampstead host East Grinstead on Sunday.
