WINDERMERE'S men are still streaks ahead of the competition after another resounding victory.

The first team are sitting pretty at the top of the North West Hockey League Division One after beating Manchester 3-1 at Troutbeck Bridge.

The game, which took place on Saturday, January 17, was a roller-coaster for the home side.

They went 1-0 down early on when Manchester opened their account and made a strong start to the game.

However, Steve Heyns was not to be denied and he got his team level right on the stroke of half time.

The stage was set for two signature Will Dolman short corner strikes in the second half which sealed the victory for Windermere.

Defender Joe Kay was named man of the match.

Windermere will be hoping to maintain this kind of form as they head into a top of the table clash against the much fancied Wilmslow who currently sit in second place.

Sunday's rearranged game against Lymm again succumbed to the elements as it was called off due to heavy snow.

Elsewhere, Windermere's second team suffered away at Preston.

They are still looking for their first win of 2015 after losing emphatically 7-3.

A poor first half performance ensured the game was already beyond reach but 'Mere showed good team spirit to score three goals in the second half from Jake Fisher, Chris Toward and man of the match Aidan McDougall.
