Ashmoor 4, Sid HC Men’s 4th XI 2

Since these teams last met, and Sidmouth lost 3-0, Ashmoor have been unbeaten.

Ashmoor scored two early goals and Sidmouth’s reply came from a Simon Price short corner.

After the half-time break, Ashmoor re-established their two goal cushion and again Sidmouth pulled one back when Anthony Dibble rounded a defender and crossed to find Richard Lucas who scored with a quick turn and instinctive shot into the corner.

Despite having Cliff Davies sin-binned and Simon Jones sent off, Sidmouth pushed to level but were caught on the break.

for an inaudible comment uttered as a ball whistled dangerously passed his head and when he returned to the pitch, Simon Price got his marching orders as ‘toys started to be thrown out of the pram’ after a number of decision didn’t go his way.

Despite being a player down for 20 of the 35 second half minutes, Sidmouth continued to push forward in search of an equaliser but were unfortunately caught on the break, conceding a fourth goal before the end of the game.

The defeat leaves the side in sixth position in the league, which although not ideal, it does give them club bragging rights as the highest placed team in their respective leagues.

The Adrenalin Games man of the match was awarded jointly to Nick Mansfield and Richard Lucas.
