National captain Darren Cowie scored the lone goal as Notre Dame battled past defending champions Petrotrin 1-0 to maintain a one-point lead over Queen’s Park CC in the T&T Hockey Board Men’s Championship Division at the National Hockey Centre, Tacarigua on Saturday.

 

Cowie netted in the 33rd minute for the Dames, now with 22 points from nine matches, one more than the Parkites who clipped Courts Malvern 3-1 led by a brace from Dominic Young.

 

Young scored in the sixth and 29th minute while veteran player, Raphael Govia got the other in the 18th before Peter Edwards fired in a 49th minute consolation for Malvern.

Woodward opened the scroing in the 44th but Handel Thom replied for the host ten minutes later, only for Wren to snatch a late winner in the 66th.
