Laxton’s AZ&PC continue charge up Dutch Hoofdklasse
28 March 2011
Dan Laxton’s AZ&PC continued their charge up the Dutch Hoofdklasse with a comfortable victory over Het Ravijn.
The British player – usually AZ&PC’s star performer in front of goal – failed to find the net but helped his team to a 10-4 win.
GB teammate Adam Scholefield did find the net but couldn’t prevent PVSK-Fuszert slipping to a defeat in the Hungarian National League as they lost out 9-8 to Ujpest Gymnastics Club.
Craig Figes’ UNSW Wests Magpies suffered a rare defeat in the Australian National League.
The Great Britain captain bagged two goals for Wests but his side also missed out by a single goal, ultimately going down 10-9 in Lambton.
Sean King’s SV Weiden suffered a disastrous start to their relegation playoff campaign but recovered to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five series against Duisburg SV.
Kind found the net once in the opening match but Duisburg – who finished third in Group B – clinched a 7-6 win in front of a home crowd.
It was a different matter in matches two and three as SV Weiden secured 9-6 and 10-6 wins with King scoring once and three times in the two matches respectively.
Alex Parsonage, Mike Bourne and Ric Lawlor all found the net in the Dutch Hoofdklasse but ended up on the losing side.
Parsonage scored twice for UZSC in a 15-10 defeat to MNC Dordrecht while Bourne scored twice and Lawlor once as PSV slipped to a 22-8 drubbing against league leaders Schuurman BRC.
