Empire do the double
NEITHER DEACONS NOR THE AVENGERS could stop an “Empire” from being built in the inaugural Barbados Hockey Federation’s (BHF) Hockey 7s National League competition.
United Insurance Empire walked away with both the women’s and men’s titles, albeit in contrasting fashion, when the finals were held at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus’s hockey AstroTurf Thursday night.
While their female counterparts had an easy task in disposing of Avengers 7-0 in a lopsided final, the men were made to fight before overcoming Deacons 3-2 in a sudden death penalty shoot-out.
The men’s final couldn’t have asked for anything more.
