RATHBONES Old Victorians managed to grind out a 4-1 victory in their Brewin Dolphin Men’s Senior Cup encounter with Jersey Hockey Club on Saturday at Les Quennevais, leaving themselves in prime position to represent the Island in this season’s Upton.

Both sides were fully aware that Saturday’s fixture would be closely run, having played out a 3-3 draw only three weeks earlier.

This time around, in a relatively scrappy game with very few periods of fluid, flowing hockey, it was slick penalty corner routines that were the difference between the sides.

After the victory, OVs are now three points clear at the top of the table with two games remaining.
