Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) men’s first team were 5-1 winners when they travelled to Bridport to meet West Dorset with Treeve Harris scoring a hat-trick.

It completed a season’s double for SOHC, who were also 4-0 winners when the teams met in East Devon back in November.

Conditions were not ideal at Bridport, where wet-weather gear was the order of the day for supporters!

SOHC made a sluggish start and were opened up in the early exchanges with a direct run through the heart of their territory, but there was no end result while, at the other end of the pitch, SOHC netted three times to hold a comfortable half-time advantage.

The second half brought more of the same with SOHC controlling things well as two further goals were scored, though a late consolation from the home side put an end to any hopes of a clean-sheet success.

As well as the Harris treble, there were goals from George Harvey Powell and Nick Mansfield.

The win leaves SOHC sitting 9 points clear of second placed PGSOB A with just five games to play in the league campaign.

On Saturday, SOHC entertain fifth placed OPM, who they beat 5-1 earlier in the season. A home win and defeat for PGSOB A at home to Isca C, would leave SOHC a dozen points clear with only 12 points to play for, and that would mean they could seal the title the following Saturday when they visit third-in-the-table Plymouth University A.
