In a well contested first half SOHC scored three times, but Winscombe gave as good as they got for long periods and only some terrific saves from Charlotte Brodie ensured that half-time was reached with SOHC still sporting a clean sheet.
Green cards were picked up by both Alice Please and Megan Thompson-Summers for some rather passionate play!
After the break there was more disciplined defending and midfield industry which all led to further chances and, further goals!
Liz Knapp impressed with her work across the pitch and SOHC certainly served up some outstanding hockey in a sensational second half that saw them score five unanswered goals.
Frankie Elliott led the scoring honours with a hat-trick and the other goals came from Evie Wilson, Lizzie Nancekivell, Caroline Bickerstaff, Alice Please and Rachel Ward. The Player of the Match award was shared by Evie Wilson and Frankie Forsyth.
The ladies third team put up a valiant display in their meeting with Dawlish.

In the second half the end-to-end play continued with Dawlish scoring three times to win the game 4-1.
Despite conceding four, goalkeeper Bronwyn Spencer had a good game and there was an impressive debut from Flossie Plowden.
