The men’s 2s played Lewes 4s and were 2-0 up at half time. They finished the game as 3-1 winners with goals from J.Hayes and two from T. Hayes both from short corners.
The ladies 1st team travelled away to Horsham. The ladies kept it tight and went into the interval level with no goals to either team. Hailsham conceded in the second half, first goal to a penalty flick followed shortly by a difficult looping ball from open play. Whilst Hailsham had their chances including a disallowed goal, Horsham proved too strong and the game finished 2-0 to the home side. The game officially marks the mid way point of the season with the team having faced all their opponents once.
The Millers fixture was called off due to a frozen pitch. The ladies 2s were awarded the win this week as their opposition were unable to field a team.
