Early Moorhouse strike proves to be in vain.

Byline: By DAVID LOCKWOOD David Lockwood (The Blackcoated Worker, 1958 & 1989) sought to analyse the changes in the stratification position of the clerical worker by using a framework based on Max Weber's distinction between market and work situations.  

HUDDERSFIELD Hockey Club's hopes of toppling Yorkshire Premiership leaders Brigg came tumbling down as for the second successive week they conceded five goals to the title chasers.

Huddersfield started where they left off with an early strike from Greg Moorhouse giving them the lead, but it did not last long as Brigg equalised with a shot from close range minute later.

The home team did produce some excellent hockey and great movement from which Simon Courtney got in front of his marker and deflected a shot past the keeper, while Huddersfield's defence was equally as impressive and kept Brigg at arms length for the rest of the half.

Starting the second half 2-1 in front, Huddersfield could have putt he game away, but poor decision-making and missed chances meant the visitorswere still verymuch in the match, and after making some tactical changes they began to get on top.

They drew level, courtesy of a weak equaliser, but then some stunning play helped produce two more goals in quick succession.

It was now Brigg who were playing with confidence, while Huddersfield lacked teamwork going forward, while their defence became more uncertain.

Brigg finally added a fifth goal to put themselves firmly in position for the League title, while Huddersfield can't complain after leaking 10 goals in the last two encounters.

Team: Howarth, Courtney, Ross, Hannam, Gregory, Kaye, Kelly, Moorhouse, Peachey, Rogers, Hirst.

Huddersfield III 2 Gainsborough 0 HUDDERSFIELD moved up to fifth place in the table after completing an excellent double over high-flying Gainsborough.

Forced to make a few changes, Huddersfield were slow to settle, and but for some good defensive work from Chris Bailley could have found themselves two down.

As it was they went into the break level at 0-0 and then hit the front in the second half when Maddeford put Huddersdfield in front via a Gainsborough stick.

After that it was all Huddersfield, although Taylor, Hamed, Abbey and Maddeford had to work hard in defence at time.

Huddersfield's second was a delight, with the ball being cleared from defence to the midfield where BrettKullar took it up and slipped the ball to Beaumont to finish.

It was a well-deserved win which sees the side undefeated in eight outings.

Team: Bailley, Hamed, Maddeford, Abbey, Taylor, Jackson, Hindmarsh, Swindells, Kullar, Elson, Beaumont.

Huddersfield V 6 Bradford III 1 HAVING been beaten 4-3 by the same oppssition last week, Huddersfield had a point to prove here and played without a sweeper in favour of a more attacking line which featured the return of Pogson in midfield.

Like last week, Huddersfield took early control, but this time they made it count. Laithwaite scored a hat trick hat trick

 and further goals were added at frequent intervals by Golds, Pogson, and Shimmel.

Wood and his defenders snuffed out most of the danger in what was a great team performance.

Team: Boyle, Wood, Kullar, Maddocks, Reed, Boyle, Pogson, Laithwaite, Brennan, Shimmel, Moorhouse, Golds, Dales.

The episode was directed by Stephen Williams, and written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. It first aired on May 17, 2006 on ABC.  Amanda Sowerby had broken down the right wing driving at Broom's unsettled defence before slipping a pass to Mandy Armitage who coolly slammed the ball home.

Broom were unable to find a reply and determined tackling from Amy Smith, Laura Benson and Gail Gerrard ensured the home team remained stunned stun

A vital reflex save from keeper Eleanor Townsend set up a fast counter inwhich Sowerby converted a short corner for a 2-0 lead.

A Fillingham/Sowerby attack ended with the ball in the net but it was controversially disallowed and shortly afterwards Broom, pulled one back.

Sheffield had a couple of attacks but were unable to break through, and within 10 minutes of the second half starting Dragons had extended their lead to 6-0.
