JERSEY hopes of a long run in the England Hockey Championship Men’s Tier 2 Cup were ended in dramatic fashion in a 13-goal bonanza at Les Quennevais.

In blustery and showery conditions, it rained goals throughout on Sunday, with Jersey finishing on the wrong side of an 8-5 scoreline against Tunbridge Wells.

The Islanders were undone by clinical finishing from Tunbridge, who made it 15 goals in two days having defeated London Academicals 7-2 on Saturday to remain top of the South Hockey League Premier 2 table.

Captain Tom Millar led the attack well for Jersey, scoring a hat-trick, while colleagues Bobby Minty and Nick Ferraby also netted.

Former Guernsey development officer Ben Allberry and Chris Pelmore both scored twice for the visitors while singles were added by James Beck, Kyle Mathieson, Ali Clarke and Sam George.
