EHL PREMIER Cannock 2 Hampstead &Westminster 1
DAVE EAKINS scored his fifth goal of the season for Hampstead &Westminster on Sunday - not that it did his team any good.
All three goals came in three whirlwind first-half minutes - and then as quickly as the storm had risen, the game calmed down to a series of midfield battles with neither team able to find another breakthrough.
Stuart Pilgrim and Gareth Andrew hit two inside 60 seconds for the midlanders. But the Paddington team replied almost instantly through Eakins' sweet shot. But the final whistle finds H&W just a place ahead of the relegation play-off spot after losing their last four Premier matches on the spin.
