PETE Phillips hit a hat-trick as Swanage & Wareham’s first team sealed an impressive 4-2 Hampshire Hockey Division Three home victory over Salisbury.

Despite the blustery, wet conditions, early pressure from the home side saw some promising chances and a couple of goal-mouth scrambles before Phillips deflected a shot past the Salisbury keeper to put Swans 1-0 up.

Although Swans mounted continued pressure, it was Salisbury who were able level the scores just before half-time.

Swans edged back ahead at the start of the second half. Paul Randall put in a short pass to Jack Thompson, squaring it to Phillips, who had the simple job of putting the ball into the empty net.

Swans put the game to bed when Phillips beat the last defender, lobbing the charging keeper to put his side 3-1 up and seal his treble.

Jack Thompson then made no mistake for the hosts, scoring a penalty stroke to avenge the foul of his brother Sam.

A late consolation goal for Salisbury did not affect the outcome as Swans recorded their third victory on the bounce.

Meanwhile, Swans ladies secured a 2-2 draw at Bournemouth IV thanks to Katie Black’s late leveller.

Just before half-time, Black managed to deftly guide the ball past the Bournemouth keeper to net the opener.

But due to a deflection from a Swanage defender, the home side drew level which put their tails up.

Bournemouth went on to score a second and it remained so until the last minute of the game when again Black struck again to seal a draw.
