On Saturday 18 October both Clydesdale Western Division 1 sides had games at Titwood with opposition from the top half of the table.

Firstly the men played Gordonians, seeing their lead in the division lost as the visitors took a deserved 2-1 win.

Western women then played Grove Menzieshill, always an exciting fixture between two sides who have long been among the top sides. This was as close a game as ever with the only goal going to the home side in the second half.

Saturday 11th October saw three senior games played on Pitch 1 at the National Hockey Centre.

Firstly there was the Men’s Division 1 game between Hillhead and Watsonians. Neither side had secured a point so far this season so this was important for them. The game turned out to be fairly scrappy. Watsonians had long periods of possession but rarely created a chance in front of goal while Hillhead took their opportunities and won with a goal in each half.

The next game was the Division 2 fixture between Uddingston and Alpha Data Carnegie. This was a more entertaining game with non-stop action and goals. Uddingston ran out winners by 9-4 to keep them in contention at the top of the table.

Finally there was the women’s Division 1 match between Kelburne and Hillhead. After a run of four defeats the Kelburne girls were determined to get a result, and they eventually did by the narrow margin of 2-1.

As part of Scottish Hockey’s Friday Night Light series, Western Wildcats and Clydesdale men played their Division 1 fixture under the floodlights at Auchenhowie on Friday 11th October.

Wildcats were 1-0 up after a close first half and they followed up with two quick goals early in the second. Clydesdale fought back through the rest of the game but could only pull back one goal.

After the weekend Clydesdale lead Division One on 10 points while the Wildcats are one of four teams just one point behind.
