Parsonage fires Utrecht to fifth win of the season
28 February 2011
Alex Parsonage’s double strike handed UZSC their fifth win of the season as they pulled clear of the bottom four in the Dutch Hoofdklasse.
As well as the British player’s double, Utrecht found the net another 11 times to secure a comfortable 13-7 victory over HZ Zian – their fifth league win of the season.
Parsonage’s GB teammate Dan Laxton also scored twice in Holland but his team AZ&PC slipped to a 13-9 defeat to league leaders Schuurman BRC.
Mike Bourne and Ric Lawlor both found the net for PSV Eindhoven but couldn’t prevent an 11-6 defeat to Polar Bears Ede.
Charles Booth was the only other British player in action in the Hoofdklasse and saw his side Het Ravijn recover from a 9-7 defeat to ZPB H&L Productions on Saturday to claim a point with a 7-7 draw at HZ Zian on Sunday.
GB captain Craig Figes’ UNSW Wests Magpies lost their unbeaten record in the Australian National League with a narrow defeat at Sydney Uni Lions.
Figes scored twice to continue his mean streak in front of a goal but found the Lions attack in fine form as they secured a 12-9 win.
Sean King became the fourth British player to find the net twice this weekend as he helped SV Weiden to a 7-5 victory over Bavarian rivals SV Wurzburg in the German Bundesliga.
Avenging a 10-8 defeat from four weeks ago, King’s side extended their unbeaten run to three matches as they continue to chase a playoff spot.
