British men begin Spanish league campaigns

17th October 2011

The British men at Spanish clubs kicked off their domestic season’s last week with midweek and weekend fixtures in the Division de Honor.

Rob Parker enjoyed the best form of the British men, scoring a hat-trick as his CN Terrassa lost out 7-6 to CN Mataro in their opener before adding another in their 6-6 draw with Real Canoe.

Jack Waller’s CN Sant Andreu secured the result of the week, claiming a 10-10 draw with defending champions CN Atletic-Barceloneta in their opening fixture before a narrow 13-10 loss to Copa del Rey champions CN Barcelona.

British goalkeeper Ed Scott played for Club Mediterrani as they lost 14-10 to CN Sabadell before clinching an 8-8 draw with CD Navarra.

Finally, while Ric Lawlor and Mike Bourne’s CD Turia suffered a slow start to the season with a 21-6 defeat to Real Canoe and a 19-12 loss to CN Montjuic, there was consolation in Bourne finding the net in both games.

Dan Laxton’s AZ&PC secured three points from two away fixtures in the Dutch Hoofdklasse over the weekend.

Laxton bagged a double in his side’s 10-9 defeat at ZPB before scoring again as they scored a second away win of the season with a 12-11 victory at De Zijl.

Alex Parsonage matched his British teammate’s efforts in front of goal and came away with an identical record as UZSC suffered defeat on Saturday but bounced back for three points on Sunday.

The Brit scored twice as the Utrecht outfit lost 11-8 at home to Electrolux AZC and added another as UZSC enjoyed more success on their travels, scoring an 8-4 win at MNC Dordrecht.

Adam Scholefield and Joe O’Regan enjoyed mixed fortunes for PVSK-Füszért in the Hungarian Vodafone OB I league as they suffered a defeat at Debrecen before bouncing back with a home win against Szentes the following day.

Despite both playing in the 15-4 defeat in Debrecen, the two British players showed little sign of fatigue from the 900km round-trip as they provided the driving force behind their team’s 12-7 victory in Pecs.

O’Regan took the plaudits after bagging four goals while Scholefield also contributed with a solitary strike as PVSK consolidated their seventh position in the league.
