Last year’s EHA Cup winners, Ruislip Eagles men (pictured) beat last year’s league champions Great Dane 27-26.
Leading by seven goals at half time thanks largely to a strong defence and good performance by keeper Andrius Rinkevicius, the Eagles faced a backlash from Great Dane after the break, but just clung on for victory.
And Ruislip women also won, 24-20, over league newcomers but title contenders, Deva from Chester.
Eleven goals from Telek helped the Eagles to victory, but they had to fight back from a 10-14 half time deficit.
Elsewhere, in the men’s league Liverpool Wolves won 36-10 over Speke Garston, while Manchester edged last Deva 29-27.
Olympia overcame Cambridge 24-30, while in the women’s league, Thames beat Cambridge 29-17 at Moulton.
