Nagra grabs the short cut to glory; HOCKEY: Latest action from the BodyKraft League.

 logged a hattrick of impeccable short-corner strikes to give Khalsa the edge in a pulsating derby.

He converted an early setpiece won by Jas Singh to give Khalsa the initiative but Sean Whitehouse responded in kind and - with the home side temporarily reduced to 10 men because of Jay Nagra's spell in the sin-bin - Coventry nudged in front when a left-wing raid left Ed Benfield time to pick his spot in Keith Distin's net.

Back to full strength, Khalsa equalised as a foul on Adie Betts gave Aaron another opportunity to demonstrate his short-corner ef-ficiency.

With Gurminder Ghattaura given a more attacking role in the second period, Khalsa regained the lead courtesy of Sean Robinson's brilliant reverse-stick strike - but two minutes later he blotted his copybook (programming, library) copybook - (Or "copy member", "copy module") A common piece of source code designed to be copied into many source programs, used mainly in IBM DOS mainframe programming.

 by fouling Ieuan Weir in the area and Ben Clarke stepped up to squeeze the penalty past Distin.

Whitehouse's aerial clearances and John Grundy's expertly-timed interceptions stood Coventry in good defensive stead. But Khalsa were not to be denied and, after Dharminder Singh had fired one effort just over the bar, Gurminder forced the corner that enabled Aaron to blast home the decider. n COVENTRY powered into the third round of the HA Under-18 Cup when Max Jennings (30, Tom Jackson (2) and Tom Johnson Tom Johnson may refer to:

 (2) spearheaded their 9-2 rout of Blossomfield.

Coventry's Under-16s, however, suffered an 11-0 mauling from a hugely-impressive Cannock outfit.

Warwick....................................5 Stone ........................................3 WARWICK made heavy weather of subduing rock-bottom Stone but duly claimed the points on the back of a Chris Todd Christopher Todd (born August 22, 1981 in Swansea, Wales), is a footballer with Torquay United.

 hat-trick that hoisted his seasonal haul to 15.

Todd's early opener hinted at a runaway win but Warwick found themselves trailing 2-1 at the break as Stone gratefully accepted a penalty flick before punishing some inexcusably sloppy play as the hosts were distracted by a substitution.

Ant Baxter levelled from a short corner, however, and Warwick fi-nally found their rhythm - Todd gliding home a superb ball from young George Tedstone and rounding off excellent work by Max Dowsing to sandwich Sean Duvall's drive from the rim of the D.

Nottingham University .............3 Warwick University...................3 A GOOD point on paper, but Warwick were bitterly disappointed after squandering a 3-0 lead.

They got off to a cracking start, Jake Rubin's short-corner opener supplemented by an intricate right-wing thrust that enabled Alex Evans to flick into the roof of the net.

Mark Bridger weighed in with a debut goal early in the second half following an electrifying solo dash by captain Tom Morton Tom Morton (born December 31, 1955) is a Scottish writer, broadcaster, and musician. He lives and works in the Shetland Islands.

Morton currently (2007) has a BBC Radio Scotland music show, broadcast each weekday afternoon.

But Warwick made the fatal mistake of assuming the points were in the bag and, having been pegged back by a short corner and a lucky deflection, they were stunned in the final few seconds when Nottingham's Dutch centre-back weaved his way past a string of attempted challenges to slot home the equaliser.

Boots ........................................5 Sikh Union (Coventry) ..............6 MICKY HAYER marked his return with a superb four-goal display as Union edged a thrilling duel.

Boots drew first blood but Hayer tapped home Devinder Singh's pass before claiming his second from a highly acute angle.

And although Boots pulled level from a short corner Hayer swiftly added two more - the first created by Indi Mann, the second all his own work - before Devinder combined cleverly with Indi Mann to make it 5-2. Union moved four goals clear when Hayer turned goal-maker for Indi, but some sloppy defensive work saw that advantage whittled down alarmingly before the final whistle.

 match after battling back brilliantly to wipe out a 4-0 deficit. Rocked by an early penalty against the run of play The term "against the run of play" is used in football (soccer) to describe an event or action against the flow of the game. For example, if team A is having all of the possession, all of the chances and are dictating the game, yet team B have one chance and score from it then that , Nuneaton shipped three more goals in a chaotic spell before Kev Edwards and Andy Forryan launched the revival.

Edwards carved an opening for Dave Holmes Dave Holmes (born March 14, 1971 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a television personality who gained national attention as the runner-up on MTV's first Wanna Be a VJ contest in 1998.  to make it 4-3 and, although the Students then accepted a second penalty, Edwards completed his hat-trick with a crisp setpiece finish and a handsome goal from open play.

At that stage Nuneaton looked the likelier winners - but the home side pounced on a misdirected midfield pass to grab the winner and leave Town to reflect on their first-half generosity.

Grantham..................................0 Atherstone Adders....................5 JONATHAN HALL was the hattrick inspiration as Atherstone built on the previous week's draw to claim their first win of the season and take a highly encouraging step off the foot of the table.

Hall rounded off a fine move involving Robert Boal and Jimmy Meer to give Adders the lead and Ian Bennett rammed in a short corner to make it 2-0 at the interval.

Hall calmly collected his second to make the game safe and, after Jimmy Meer had got a decisive touch to his wayward shot, he was again in the right place at the right time to complete his treble.

n Brent Glover and Sam Nicholl supplemented Danny Osbourne's four-goal blast as Adders Fathoms saw off their Banbury counterparts 6-0.
