Hats off: Two hat-tricks secured Kingston men victory over their local rivals in hockey’s season opener.
Kingston’s Robert Field was in fine form during his debut competitive performance against Surrey, despite battling a chest infection.
Field’s hat-trick and two assists helped secure an 8-1 victory and bragging rights for Kingston over their fierce rivals.
Field said: “As a team, we played really well at first and then dropped off towards the end of the first half. They piled on the pressure, but we defended well and played well in the second half.
“I was happy with my performance as I got a hat-trick in the first 15 minutes which was really good.”
The first year sports science student’s outstanding performance was commended by team captain Luke Lovejoy.
“He is quality. We had two friendly games last week and he got hat-tricks in both of those as well,” he said.
However, Field was not the only player to perform exceptionally. Chris Podd also claimed a hat-trick with Ollie Varney and Chris Gauchan adding the other two goals.
