Southampton enjoyed their most successful weekend so far, securing valuable Hampshire/Surrey Regional Division 1 points by beating Romsey 2-1 before knocking Winchester II out of the England Hockey Tier 2 Cup.
Some fine work by John White created an opening for Simon Watson to give Southampton the lead in the basement battle with Romsey.
Lukas Drumm doubled Southampton’s lead, but when Romsey pulled a goal back the Sports Centre hosts were forced to cling on.
Drumm, the German striker, scored twice in Southampton’s nervy 4-2 cup win over Winchester, who fought back from 3-1 down before losing 4-2.
Drumm, Joe Barber and Josh Wright scored the opening three goals for Southampton, with Stuart Swift on target with a rebound for Winchester.
Teenager James Lander got Southampton back into the game, but a superb penalty stroke save by Toby Rigby from Swift prevented a Winchester equaliser. Drumm’s second late goal clinched Southampton’s 4-2 win.
