Cup agony for Sean King in Germany
21 March 2011
Sean King scored all four of his SV Weiden’s goals but saw his side narrowly miss out on a semi-final place in the German ‘Turbo Cup’.
Weiden slipped a goal behind at home to rivals SV Wurzburg in the opening quarter and couldn’t overturn the deficit, eventually slipping to a 5-4 defeat.
Craig Figes’ UNSW Wests Magpies continued their winning form in the Australian National League with a comfortable defeat of Cronulla Sharks.
The Great Britain captain – who scored seven goals in two matches last week – added one goal for his side as they completed a 13 – 6 win.
Adam Scholefield’s PVSK-Fuszert secured their second win on the bounce in the Hungarian National League, crushing Bodrogi Bau Szentes 14-5.
Meanwhile, Dan Laxton’s AZ&PC extended their unbeaten run to four matches in the Dutch Hoofdklasse with a 5-4 defeat of PSV Eindhoven.
Laxton scored the opener for his team and while PSV staged a late comeback with British teammate Ric Lawlor finding the net in the final quarter, the home side held on for the points.
Elsewhere in the Dutch league, Alex Parsonage’s UZSC were downed 9-5 by De Zijl and Charles Booth’s Het Ravijn lost out 10-8 to MNC Dordrecht.
