The end of the East Hockey League season is now just two weeks away but for some teams, destiny has not yet picked an outcome.

The men's first team at Potters Bar is one of them after they drew 1-1 away to Harpenden in a late game.

They sit fourth from bottom in Division One South, a position that it is believed, although not confirmed, will land them in the relegation zone come the end of the month.

However, safety is very much in their grasp with a trip to Bury St Edmunds up next, two places and one point above them, before a final day home game against bottom of the table Colchester.

Ed Whybrow got the goal in the draw at Woollams.

The thirds sit top of Division Four South West after a 10-0 trouncing of Harps, level on points with Hertford but with goal difference firmly in their favour.

The top two meet on the final day of the season at Simon Balle.

Five goals from Aryan Walia got half the goals against Harpenden with two from Sam Penn and one each for Ben Cade, Dil Kos and Alf Pizey.

The fourths also hold the top spot in Division Seven but 

The Men's 4s also remain top of their division (Div 7SW), with just one game remaining, two points above Shefford & Sandy and four clear of St Albans.

However, they have just one more game left to play with the chasing duo have two.

Their penultimate game ended in a 4-2 victory at Bishop's Stortford thanks to goals from Scott Alexander (two), Liam Frame and Adrian Clargo.

The seconds sit firmly mid-table in Division Three after a 2-2 draw at home to Blueharts.

Aden Irwin and Jack Goodwin got the goals but a week after Louis Anastasiou finished the game in A&E with a head injury, it was Owain Stedman's turn for a trip to hospital for the same treatment.

Both players are believed to be on the mend.

The ladies faced a much sterner test than usual at Dame Alice Owens' School against Saffron Walden, eventually falling to a 10-3 loss.

Chris Field got two for Bar and Izzy Coghlan one.

Welwyn Garden City's men had a tough afternoon away to Bedford, losing 5-1 as the hosts continued their battle against relegation from Division Two South West.

They started brightly enough with Paul Marchant and Bryn Evans winning the midfield battle and releasing David Allmand-Smith and Nate Last to trouble the home defence with their direct running.

This led to a series of penalty corners for the visitors, however, all their efforts were well saved.

Bedford then showed them how to do it with an effort into the top corner that gave Dan Klinger no chance.

Welwyn almost responded immediately when a flowing move started by James Fowler went through Stuart Stephens before reaching Allmand-Smith.

His cross found Dan White but his shot was saved.

A period of possession though from the home side proved crucial, Bedford scoring first with another short corner and then bagging a third following a goal mouth scramble.

The second half followed a similar pattern, although Welwyn did begin to secure more of the ball with Teddy May increasingly influencing the game from left midfield.

Rob Sansom, Fowler and Pete Mullens were starting to dominate at the back for Welwyn when they were hit with another sucker punch, a ball fired in the Welwyn D and deflected into the net.

Welwyn finally got on the score sheet when a Klinger save and clearance found Mullens who linked with Marchant to win a penalty corner.

Bryn Evans cleverly slipped Marchant in and he hammered the ball home.

But a disappointing afternoon concluded with a final Bedford penalty corner conversion to make it 5-1.

The fourths were the only men's side to avoid defeat, drawing 1-1 with Broxbourne, the same result as picked up by the ladies' first team.

The ladies' seconds are now level on points with third-bottom Royston in Division Three after a 1-0 win over Stevenage.
