Robin Hood 1
Goals from Jonny Bean and Adolphus Lambert guided the hosts to victory while Antwan Russell grabbed Hood's lone goal.
All three goals came in the first half with Bean opening the scoring in the 21st minute and Lambert doubling the lead in the 32nd.
Russell got the pub side back in the match when he struck in the 42nd minute but that was as close as they would come to finding the net again.
The win propelled the West Enders into the top five, seven points off the pace of Devonshire Cougars.
“We knew it wouldn’t be an easy match but in the end we held on for a win that can help jump start our second half,” said Bean.
“Winning homes games is important, so we want to continue to build off good results in case the leaders slip up and we can capitalise.
“It wasn’t so much a sense of holding on after they grabbed their goal but rather sticking to our game plan and playing how we know we can.”
