Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) ladies enjoyed a good weekend with three of the four teams winning.

The first team were 5-1 home winners over Teign II with Aimee Keast once again taking the scoring honours with another hat-trick!

Karen Dutton and Samantha Parkyn were the other scorers.

Alice Please made a mighty impressive first team debut and was deservedly voted as the SOHC Player of the Match.

The halfway mark in the Petroc One season has arrived with the team sitting fourth having won six of their nine matches so far. Their home record is currently played three and won three.

The ladies second XI went one better than their senior club colleagues as they won their Sedgemoor Division Two game at Taunton Vale fifths 6-1.

The bottom-of-the-table hosts were clearly strengthened for the fixture, but that proved no issue for the SOHC ladies who produced a wonderful second half show during which the only goal they conceded came after a heavy foot foul gave goalkeeper Charlotte Brodie a penalty to contend with.

Arguably, the finest of the six goals was the baseline crack from Megan Thompson-Summers that flew into the top corner of the Somerset side’s goal. It was young Fran Piper who took the Player of the Match award with an excellent all-round contribution – the youngster scored one of the goals. Lucy Gosling netted a brace and the other goals were scored by Jasmine Scott, and Frankie Forsyth.

The award for Most Supportive Player went to Liz Knapp. The second eleven have reached halfway sitting second in the table, three points behind leaders Weston-super-Mare. They launch the second half of their season in mid-January at Bridgwater II.

The ladies third team were 3-0 home winners in their Petroc Division Two meeting with Dart III. SOHC III have reached the halfway stage of their league campaign sitting seventh out of the 10 teams. The ladies IV team, beaten 5-3 at Okehampton II last weekend, end the first half of their Petroc Division Two season sitting second-from-bottom.
