WINDSOR revisited their nemesis Wootton Wanderers and finally settled and old score with a 5-3 win on Saturday.

For it was Wootton that beat Windsor to top spot and promotion to Middx, Berks, Bucks & Oxon Division Two as champions last season.

So with all to still prove against their old adversaries, a spirited Windsor side started on the front foot and bossed the game from the start.

The more creative of the two, Windsor had the best chances in the opening 10 minutes and finally broke the deadlock after a well-worked move from brothers Kevin and Daniel Jones.

A pass from Kevin to Daniel saw the latter fire into the corner with a flamboyant reverse sweep to put the visitors in the lead.

But, Wanderers showed their quality and hit back with two exceptional goals, a drag flick from a penalty corner and a slick finish from a ruthless counter-attack to go into the half-time interval 2-1 ahead.

Stunned to find themselves trailing despite dominating the game, Windsor raised the tempo to produce some of their best hockey this season.

Kevin Jones linked up with Matt Dewhurst to weave past the defence and the latter shot fast and low to equalise.

Marcus Barrow made it 3-2 to the visitors and within minutes Sean Wright had given them a comfortable 4-2 lead.

But, Wootton battled to get back into the game and showed their prowess with short corners, managing to slip to the left then shoot past keeper Richard Sage to narrow the gap.

With six minutes left and Wanderers looking strong, Windsor knew they had to remain composed and keep possession to secure all three points.

An incredible string of seven passes with Wright at the end of the final one saw him force the Wootton keeper to pull off two brilliant saves before the Windsor star got the better of him.

Lifting the ball out of the reach of the keeper, Wright found Dewhurst in the perfect position to finish the move.

The win means Windsor have moved up to seventh position in Division Two and host ninth-placed Wycombe 3s this Saturday.

The second team were at the forefront of a goals-galore thriller when putting eight past West Hampstead 7s and keeping a clean sheet.

Dan Knowles opened the scoring within the first five minutes and he bagged his second just five minutes later.

Complete domination and clinical finishing from the home team were a deadly combination that saw Jack Snell score an incredible four goals, three from set pieces.

Caption Matthew Humphreys and Mindaugas Spalgenas were also on the scoresheet in the 8-0 win that keeps them top in Division Six and four points above nearest rivals Tring 2s.

The league leaders play ninth-placed Oxford 6s at home on Saturday.

In Division Seven, the third team lost 4-1 to Marlow 5s at home and will take on Eastcote 5s away this Saturday.
