Peter the great for Bracknell HC TerriersBy Libby Mound

Eastcote 0 Bracknell Terriers 6
At the beginning of this MBBO Division 10 West game, it seemed nothing was going to go right for the Terriers.
With the passing lacking sharpness and returning top goalscorer Peter Scott seemingly out of sorts, Eastcote were allowed too much time on the ball and grew confident.
However, when Scott did open the scoring following a defence-beating dribble and clinical finish, Bracknell settled into their rhythm.
And when Scott doubled the lead before half-time, Bracknell were a different side.
Scott added another two goals after the break as Bracknell took complete control of the game.
Then two flowing passing moves finished off the scoring as Alex Fox Harvey grabbed a deserved goal and Scott chipped in his fifth of the game.
Bracknell Men’s 3rd 1 Wallingford 4th 2
Bracknell went into this MBBO Division 8 game in high spirits as they could once again field a strong team with a full quota of subs.
However, a strong Wallingford side soon gave Bracknell a reality check, and the home side found themselves trailing 2-0 at half-time.
Bracknell upped their game in the last 20 minutes, but could only a muster a Shaun McInnes goal, assisted by Richard Jones as they were narrowly defeated.
Amersham & Chalfont 3rd 1 Bracknell Ladies 2nd 1
After last week’s frustrating defeat, Bracknell 2s were fired up against Amersham & Chalfont in Trysports Three Counties Division 2 on Saturday.
Bracknell started off well, with a goal from Gemma Mclean in the first 15 minutes, but Amersham fought back strongly and kept Bracknell on their toes.
Bracknell appeared to be heading for victory mid-way through the second half, but with 10 minutes remaining, Amersham equalised.
Bracknell had no answer after this and had to be content with a draw.
Goalscorer Mclean was the girl of the game, with Helen Goodall a close runner up for her dogged play. Joy Westlake also impressed as a last-minute replacement in goal.
Bracknell will be hoping to redscover the winning edge against City of Oxford at Birch Hill this weekend.
