HAMPSTEAD & Westminster overcame the absence of seven first-team regulars to win 3-1 at Chichester Priory Park in the English Hockey Cup.

The gutsy win was H&W's fourth in their last five matches and confirmed their place in the last 16 of the competition, where they take on Brighton and Hove.

Harvinder Chima netted from open play to give the Paddington Rec side the lead in the 15th minute and they held that advantage until half-time.

Chichester equalised in the 40th minute, but the visitors reclaimed the lead 15 minutes later when Kieron Roach scored with a goal from open play.

And Dave Eakins took the contest beyond the reach of the home side when he netted H&W's third goal with a 67th-minute penalty.

WEST Hampstead were literally hit for six after a disastrous second half in their South League Division Two match at Eastbourne on Saturday.

The Sussex side opened the scoring, but Tom Bullock levelled from a short corner, only for Eastbourne to reclaim the lead before half-time.

And Jamie Dru's men were unable to cope when the home team upped the tempo after the break, scoring a brace of short corners immediately after the restart and two more in the last 10 minutes to run out 6-1 winners.
