Sidmouth and Ottery (SOHC) continued their fine form this season, beating Dart II 6-1 to stay third in the Petroc Division One table.

SOHC started spritely, quickly working the ball into the opposition’s D, and, after several opportunities and short corners, Karen Dutton converted.

Nicky Lockyer and Katie Dean worked well together in the centre midfield, picking up loose balls and driving forwards into the D.

Katie Jackson had a great game in defence and a superb ball down the line found Ellie Marok who scored a beautiful aerial! SOHC continued to press Dart, and, after several unlucky misses, Karen Dutton found the backboard once again.

Dart began linking passes well, and, despite great defensive work from Lucy Lefebvre, Laura Strawbridge and Katie Jackson, they got a goal back and half-time arrived with SOHC 3-1 to the good.

During the break, with all substitutes already called into action after first half injuries, SOHC knew that the second period would involve plenty of hard work!

However, clearly undaunted by this they made a high tempo start to the second half with some terrific wing play and delivery into the D by Jess Oliver and Ellie Marok.

Sam Parkyn and Aimee Keast worked well in the D and both were very unlucky not to score on several occasions.

The fourth goal continued to elude SOHC until a well-executed long corner, taken by Nicky Lockyer, found Karen Dutton to complete her first hat-trick of the season.

Not to be out done, Ellie Marok netted a quick-fire double to complete her hat-trick and put a polished seal on a fine all-round team performance.

The result sets things up nicely for their next outing when, on Saturday (November 19) they take on table-topping Exe III who have won all three of their home matches so far scoring 13 times and conceding none.
