Buckingham LHC IIs took another step closer to the Trysports Premier Two title with an 11-1 hammering over Reading.

Buckingham produced their best hockey of the season in the opening half, making simple and constructive passes, connecting well around the field to rack up six goals, put away by Andrea Freshwater, Kirsty Freshwater, Ella Cussack, Valerie Madojemu, Laura Grossic and Jaz Needham.

As temperatures rose in the second half, the pace of play dropped but Buckingham still managed a further five goals with Fi Farley scoring a brace and Vicky Ross netting once while Madojemu and Grossic doubled their tallies.

Buckingham could clinch the league this weekend if they win away at Amersham & Chalfont.
