Scholefield’s PVSK battle bravely against unbeaten ZF-Eger
11 April 2011
Adam Scholefield’s PVSK-Fuszert will contest the fifth position playoffs in the Hungarian National League after bringing their regular season campaign to a close.
Taking on unbeaten regular season winners ZF-Eger in their final match, PVSK were up against it but battled bravely in a 10-6.
The result leaves Scholefield’s team seventh and facing a play-off series with FTC-Fisher, Szolnok VSC and Debrecen Fujitsu to decide fifth to eighth places this season.
Sean King bagged a hat-trick but couldn’t prevent SV Weiden slipping to a narrow defeat in their first of their best-of-three Bundesliga playoff quarter final with Waspo Hannover.
Hannover looked strong from the outset, taking a 6-3 lead at half-time before holding on to their three goal advantage for a 12-9 win.
Dan Laxton’s AZ&PC finished their regular season on a low note in the Dutch Hoofdklasse as they slipped to a 12-11 defeat to Polar Bears Ede.
The result means Laxton’s side face a tricky playoff quarter final match up with GZC Widex Donk next weekend.
Charles Booth’s Het Ravijn also tasted defeat in the Netherlands as they lost 9-8 to De Zijl.
Booth will now face Great Britain teammate Alex Parsonage and his side UZSC in the top division play-out next weekend.
Finally, Great Britain captain Craig Figes scored two goals in as many days as UNSW Wests Magpies continued their Australian National League campaign.
After a 9-8 victory over Cronulla Sharks on Thursday, Wests slipped to a surprise 12-7 defeat to Balmain Tigers on Saturday before bouncing back with an impressive 12-8 win against fellow title chasers Sydney Uni Lions.
