Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) ladies’ first team drew 1-1 with visiting Isca.
Training 1-0, parity was restored by a clinical finish late in the second half from Frankie Elliot.
Ellie Marok was again in fine form and she deservedly landed another Player of the Match award.
The draw with third-in-the-table Isca means that the ladies remain unbeaten all season long at home.
The ladies second team recorded the ‘result of the day’ as they continued their promotion bid with a splendid 3-1 win at Taunton Civil Service.

An early short corner slap from Jasmine Scott saw SOHC into an early lead.
The home side, who have been in good form of late, hit back, but the defensive line of SOHC did a grand job and, even when they lost a player halfway through the half, the general play was solid and disciplined and, when the back line was breached, goalkeeper Charlotte Brodie made some fine – and important – saves.

The home side hit back early in the second half and levelled – albeit with some dubious footwork!
Undettered, SOHC were soon back onto the front foot, but despite their splendid endeavours, a second goal was not forthcoming.
At the other end of the pitch Taunton were awarded a penalty flick, but again Brodie was equal to it, making another fine save.
When Jasmine Scott rejoined the game she injected extra drive and her stick control was a joy to watch as she weaved her way through challenges.
Scott was involved in the second goal, as was Megan Thompson Summers, with the goal being scored by Frankie Fosyth.
The third and final goal was all about the team as a single unit with the ball being moved around slickly before being slapped home by Fran Piper.
Throughout the game, Katie Underwood caught the eye with her superb defending, but the Player of the Match award went to the outstanding Charlotte Brodie.
The ladies third team won 2-0 against Teign and the ladies fourth team went down 6-0 to an aggressive Dawlish. The final score certainly did not do justice to what was a solid and battling performance from the SOHC ladies.
