Reading 4 H&W 1
Ed Bevan thought the opening salvo in this season's English Hockey League might be tough - and the Hampstead & Westminster captain wasn't wrong.
But it was the final nine minutes that did for Bevan's boys.
Reading went ahead on the stroke of half-time. But the Paddingtonbased side responded when Will Naylor scored soon after the restart. However, the home team scored three times in the last nine minutes.
