ST NEOTS overcame Broxbourne on Saturday to retain their place at the top of Division One of the Five Counties Women's Hockey League.

Some strong attacking by St Neots early on brought a short corner, from which Emma Stocking found the net.

Further attacks from the league leaders gave Stocking her hat-trick before Broxbourne, who are currently in second place, managed to score in the second half.

Goals from Sarah Moore, Sam Bradbury and Liz Turnbull ended Broxbourne's hopes of a win, however.
