SOLIHULL Blossomfield had a clean sweep of wins for three of their sides at the weekend.

Blossomfield’s mens first XI edged Lichfield 3s in a tight encounter, going ahead through Al Stilling at a short corner.

Lichfield promptly hit back with a leveller, before going ahead through a deflection from a penalty corner after the break.

Nick Hooten came to the rescue with an equaliser at the back post, but it was Tom Bates’ stunning lob over the keeper from a tight-angle to win it that stole the show.

It allows Bloss to continue their hunt for promotion with another crucial win.

Bloss’ ladies first XI made a tough trip to Telford & Wrekin appear straightforward with their 2-0 win.

A physical encounter that was controlled by Solihull was rewarded when Vicki Shuter opened the scoring from a penalty corner.

After the break with numerous chances at goal, a second goal was looking elusive, until a well-worked move involving Lou Davis and Sam Yarnold allowed the latter to round the keeper to score.

It capped off the scoring to ensure Bloss stay top with two games to go.

Bloss ladies second string thumped Sutton Coldfield 5s, bursting out the blocks to lead after ten minutes through Hannah Shoreson.

Continuous attacks rewarded a quickfire double, provided by Helen Kavanagh, whilst Eli Harrison put away a chance to make it 4-0 at half-time.

Bloss looked for a fifth, and found it through Harrison for her second of the game, and whilst Sutton improved throughout the half, the visitors held out for a convincing victory that keeps them top with three games to play.
