Indies firmly in the driving seat after convincing win

INDIES are flying high at the top of Men’s Division One and they are going to take some catching now.

In hitting their old rivals Colombians for six in their first meeting of the season on Saturday, the men in orange extended their perfect start to four wins and in doing so opened up a five-point lead at the head of the table.

Unusually for a meeting between these two, only the league leaders were ‘at it’ from the first whistle and although they did not pull clear until the last 20 minutes, Tom Still’s side always looked the likely winners. It finished up 6-1.

Colombians were not helped by Zak Damarell suffering a dead leg early on in the piece that restricted him to a more sedate role that his normal, marauding self in the centre of the park, but in the big scheme of things, even if their captain had been at top gear it probably would not have altered the final outcome to any great degree.

Indies were the better side and they got their just desserts.

Alex Setters got the ball rolling and Steve Waldrom doubled the lead just before half-time.

Waldrom went on to complete a hat-trick in the second half with Dougal Perfitt and Will Dawe also scoring for Indies while Hamish Glass fired in what proved to be a consolation for Colombians.
