Welwyn Warriors 17 Croydon 9

HENRY Farrell scored a double hat-trick as Welwyn Warriors beat Croydon in their latest lacrosse match.

Welwyn took the SEMLA East Division One spoils 17-9, with Kyle Witt scoring four goals to go with Farrell's six.

Roger Ball, Steve Groves and Aaron Demant claimed two each and a single from Hamish Tiley completed the Welwyn tally.

Despite playing the whole game a man down, Croydon made life difficult for Warriors at Ottway Walk on Saturday.

Welwyn started well and went into an early lead in the first quarter.

But a Croydon side featuring a mixture of experience and young talent still managed some dangerous attacks to leave the score at the end of the first quarter at 6-2 to Welwyn.

The second quarter saw an even more determined fight back by the London side, with Welwyn not helping themselves with some sloppy play.

Croydon outscored the home side 4-1 to leave Welwyn with a slim 7-6 advantage at half-time.

The pressure of playing a man down eventually started to take its toll in the third quarter and Welwyn started to pull away again, moving into a comfortable 13-6 lead.

Croydon refused to give up though, trading goals up until the final whistle.
