SOHC ladies’ senior side claimed a superb victory thanks to a second half goal from Lea Pigeon.
Getting to the venue proved to be an experience for some! Some interesting navigation from some members of the team saw some vehicles almost crossing the Severn into Wales!
Happily all were resent for the start and SOH made were quickly into their stride looking particularly bright on the flanks where Nicky Bishop and Sara Roberts were prominent.
In the first half, SOHC had a few penalty corner opportunities, but, despite some crisp strikes, were unable to find the back of the net. At the other end of the pitch the SOHC defence was equal to the best the hosts could offer.
After the break SOHC made another high-tempo start and it was no surprise when the deadlock was eventually broken – in their favour! After a slick passing move Lea Pigeon weaved her way round the home keeper before slotting the ball home.
Thereafter SOHC closed the game out very efficiently. Emily Ackland and Nicky Bishop proved a strong left side combination, affording the home side no room to manoeuvre. Anna Kingsley switched the play well throughout. However, the player that won the coveted Player of the Match award was the Ellie Marok.
