JUST one point covers the top three going into the new year in an intriguing Men’s Division One hockey title race.

Casuals returned to the top of the pile thanks to a convincing victory in the sole top flight match of the weekend on Saturday, ahead of ABN Amro only on goal difference with champions Colombians a point behind the top two.

There was certainly no way that Casuals were going to slip up on this potential banana skin, although Yobbos never gave up and could have made it a more nervy afternoon for the leaders had they taken a couple of excellent chances when still within touching distance.

It was Casuals, though, who started the stronger.
