Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) ladies first team were 5-2 winners when they travelled to Newton Abbot for their latest Petroc Division One game.
Frankie Elliott and Aimee Keast both scored braces and the other goal came from Karen Dutton.
There were fine individual performances across the pitch with newcomers Alice Pease and Katie Underwood both impressing. Frankie Elliott was named the Player of the Match award winner.
Sadly, the ladies 2nd XI were without a game after scheduled opposition, White Eagles were unable to raise a team.
The ladies fourth team were edged out by the odd goal in five by an experienced Dart III side.

A young SOHC side certainly gave Dart – and in particular their goalkeeper – plenty to think about!
The SOHC men’s second team were beaten 8-1 by a powerful – and clinical – Hornets side.
SOHC paid the price for a slow start that saw them ship a couple of early goals.
A delightful finish from Jack Ellison might, on another day, have inspired a comeback, but it was not to be as Hornets, who led 6-1 at half-time, were clinical in front of goal. SOHC played their part and did fashion lost of chances to score further goals, but the finishing what not as good as the approach play!
There was a terrific 7-0 win for the men’s fifth team as they put Bridgwater to the sword.
Andrew Coley, Jasper Chun, Alfie Crick and Gabe Cortinhas were amongst the goal scorers.
The result puts more distance between the team and the bottom side and the battle to avoid relegation looks to have more impetus about it now!
