Laxton bags eight in two matches in Dutch Hoofdklasse

7 March 2011

Dan Laxton hit eight goals in two matches as AZ&PC moved to sixth in the Dutch Hoofdklasse.

The British player starred for Amersfoort in their midweek fixture at KNZB-NTC, bagging four in a 6-6 draw.

Laxton impressed again three days later, scoring another four to see his side past HZ Zian in an 18-11 win.

Craig Figes’ UNSW Wests Magpies returned to winning ways in the Australian National League.

The Great Britain captain was influential for Wests, bagging a hat-trick as they dismissed hosts Balmain Tigers 14-11.

Alex Parsonage was also in form in front of the net in the Hoofdklasse but his hat-trick wasn’t enough to see UZSC past Polar Bears Ede.

A 7-4 deficit at half-time proved too steep for Utrecht to recover from and Parsonage’s side ultimately lost 9-8.

Elsewhere in the Dutch league, the British players for PSV Eindhoven and Het Ravijn respectively lost their weekend matches.

Charles Booth’s Het Ravijn lost 14-6 to second-placed Electrolux AZC while Mike Bourne and Ric Lawlor played in PSV’s 6-4 defeat De Zijl (SG).

In the German Bundesliga, Sean King’s SV Weiden missed out on the playoff places after an agonising defeat to SC Wedding Berlin.

With King’s British teammate Jack Waller still injured, King’s side slipped to a 7-4 deficit at the half-way stage before eventually succumbing 9-8.

Finally, Adam Scholefield’s goals couldn’t prevent PVSK-Fuszert losing to title chasers TEVA Vasas-UNIQA and Szeged Beton in the Hungarian National League.

The British player scored once in PVSK’s 13-7 loss to second-placed Vasas before notching twice in his side’s 15-9 defeat by third-placed Szeged.
