4 April 2011
Sean King scored as SV Weiden booked their place in the German Bundesliga Playoff quarter finals.
Weiden had to go through the relegation playoffs after finishing sixth in the regular season league table but secured a 8-6 win against Duisburg SV to complete a 3-1 victory in the best-of-five series.
King’s side will now go on to face SGW Hannover in a best-of-three series for a place in the Playoff semi finals.
Craig Figes’ UNSW Wests Magpies continued their impressive form in the Australian National League.
After a 11-7 victory at UWA Torpedos on Thursday, Wests faced two matches against league leaders Freemantle Mariners over the weekend.
A 15-7 defeat was followed by a dramatic 10-9 victory on Sunday with Figes scoring once in the latter as Wests inflicted their opponents’ second defeat of the season.
Charles Booth was in scoring form for Het Ravijn in the Dutch Hoofdklasse but couldn’t prevent his league strugglers slipping to an agonising 8-7 defeat against title chasers Polar Bears Ede.
Alex Parsonage suffered a similar fate, scoring twice for UZSC as they lost out 8-7 to ZPB H&L Productions.
Dan Laxton had more success for AZ&PC as he scored twice in their 9-6 defeat of Widex GZC Donk – a victory which extended their unbeaten run to six matches since they lost to league leaders Schuurman BRC.
Elsewhere, Ric Lawlor found the net once for PSV Eindhoven but he, Matt Holland and Mike Bourne found themselves on the losing side as they lost 13-7 to second-placed Electrolux AZC.
Finally, Adam Scholefield fired PVSK-Fuszert back to winning ways, scoring once as they secured a 13-6 win over ASI in the Hungarian National League.
