SIDMOUTH & Ottery Ladies 4th XI beat bottom side Ashmoor 2nd Xi 4-0 to secure a mid-table finish in Petroc Two.
Emily Rudolph and Jasmine Scott distributed the ball well in midfield to give the forwards opportunities to produce waves of attack.
Sharp vision from Jazz Dorman who threaded the ball with pinpoint accuracy to Jane Roberts, led to the first goal.
Roberts’ second goal came from an almost identical delivery, but this time from Jasmine Scott.
Greater work was needed for this goal which found the net from an acute angle.

Not to be outdone, soon after, Scott broke through the Ashmoor defence, driving the ball at speed, and finishing with a first-class individual goal.
At the other end, stand-in goalie, Maggie Heal made a couple of crucial saves and her instructions to the defence were clearly heard over the entire pitch.

Emily Bolton showed maturity beyond her years in defence and tackled with accuracy to prevent Ashmoor making any strides forward.
Caren Flicker and Jo Elliott were impenetrable in defence.
After half time, SOHC used the width more wisely which gave Caitlin Perry the opportunity to make some strong drives forward.
Kate Fraser and Cath Monger linked well on the left to fool the Ashmoor defence several times.
Monger, who never gave up throughout the match, scored the final goal which was thoroughly deserved.
The many supporters on the sidelines, including the ever-present Norma Rich, who was injured and unable to play, were just as thrilled as the whole team with the tremendous result.
The team finished the season a credible seventh in the table, just below the third team on goal-difference!
