THAME men’s seconds held on to the top spot by beating Sonning 4-1 away.
After two weeks frozen out both sides were rather rusty and it wasn’t until 10 minutes before half-time that Will Hawthorne opened the scoring.
Just after the break Jon Pawsey struck with a memorable finish – his first for the club and his first in 20 years.
Al Vaan was causing the home side problems and his good work down the right allowed Hawthorne to kill the game with two more as the youngest member of he team secured his hat-trick.
The win leaves Thame first in the league, six points clear of Banbury who have a game in hand.
Thame Hockey Club train at Thame Leisure Centre on Wednesdays from 8.45pm.
