Radio Woking Sport local weekend roundup


Although in local football, both National League North and South clubs have decided to make this season null and void, the good news for both Woking and Aldershot is that the National League have voted to carry on playing the rest of the season.

On Saturday both Woking and Aldershot were in action, with both sides coming away with victories.

Woking travelled to face struggling Barnet at the Hive and completed a 2-0 win with goals from Jama Loza and Moussa Diarra. Meanwhile, Aldershot were back at the EBB Stadium where Wrexham were the visitors. It was a profitable afternoon for the Shots who beat the Dragons by 3-0 with a brace from Joel Nouble and an assist along with a strike from Jermaine Anderson.

Aldershot are back in midweek action when they travel to face Maidenhead United on Tuesday 23rd February. Woking were scheduled to face struggling Dover Athletic at the Laithwaite Community Stadium on Tuesday, but this game has now been called off as Dover at this moment in time can’t fulfil their fixtures.

In rugby, Harlequins made it four wins in a row after a 24-12 victory against Sale Sharks in the Gallagher Premiership at the Stoop on Saturday lunchtime.

It was third up against fourth, but it was the side sitting in fourth place at the start of the day who raced into a 21-0 lead at the break with Joe Marchant- making his 100th appearance in a Quins shirt- grabbing a brace with Alex Dombrandt crossing at the end of the half.

Quins added to their score shortly after the restart through a Marcus Smith penalty. Despite two late tries from the visitors, Harlequins ran out comfortable winners.

It was a much different and tighter affair at Surrey Sports Park on Saturday where Harlequins Women got back to winning ways after a narrow 20-19 victory over Wasps Ladies.

In a nail-biting finish to the match Harlequins Lagi Tuima slotted a penalty to secure a vital win.

In basketball, Surrey Scorchers have booked their place in the semi-finals of the BBL Trophy after a 82-73 victory against Solent Kestrels at Surrey Sports Park on Friday.

Ryan Richards top scored for Scorchers with 15 points whilst Cameron Hildreth hit 14 points. No less than five players hit double points for the hosts, who will now face either Worcester Wolves or Plymouth Raiders in the semi-final of the competition.

In netball, Surrey Storm slipped to a 50-44 loss to new girls in the league Leeds Rhinos at Wakefield on Sunday lunchtime.

At half time Storm held a narrow two goal advantage at 25-23, only for Rhinos to hit back and take quarters three and four. Karyn Bailey scored 32 goals for Storm with Sienna Rushton and Rhea Dixon hitting a combined total of 50 goals between them.

Surrey Storm are back in action on Monday where they will face Celtic Dragons with a 5.15 centre pass.
