Men’s hockey 1sts cruise through to Championship semi-finals
The men’s hockey 1st team cruised through to the semi-finals of the BUCS Championship, beating Oxford 4-1 this Wednesday. The Palatinates flew out of the traps; a good interception by Charlie Stubbings led to the first short corner of the game, from which Durham moved the ball to Matt Murphy, whose shot was too hot to handle, going into the bottom corner of the net despite the efforts of the Oxford defender on the line.
