HOCKEY: BEBINGTON'S player problems eased on Saturday with less players missing from action as in previous weekends - and it showed with some positive results.
The first team continued in a similar vein as last week, winning without playing well.
Bebington were under the cosh for the first 15 minutes at Wrexham, but they rode the storm before scoring through Alan Pugh from a superb John McMullen pass.
Just before the break, Luke Patterson doubled their advantage when he converted Rich Little's unselfish square ball and although the hosts pulled one back in the second half, Glen Costain wrapped things up from a short corner with 10 minutes to go.
Bebington seconds produced their best performance of the season to date as they enjoyed a comfortable 5-0 win over Glaxo.
Paul Seymour opened the scoring before Steve Price hit a hat-trick and Pete Gordon also netted.
Bebington's fourth team overcame Macclesfield thirds 4-2 thanks to efforts from Tim Holt, Kris Bark (2) and Steve Brady.
There was a 4-4 draw for the fifths against Macclesfield's fourth side as Bebington came from 2-0 down to level through Dave Watson and Jamie Richards.
Watson then put Bebington ahead and Chris Buckley extended their lead before Maccles-field came back to level proceedings.
The third and sixth team both suffered defeats, going down 3-0 to Macclesfield and 2-1 to Northop Hall fourths respectively.
Bebington ladies played out a 0-0 draw with South Cheshire in a match they should have led 4-0 at half-time.
