Honours ended even in the Petroc Division Two in-house meeting between SOHC ladies third and fourth teams.

The kick-off was delayed for 10 minutes to give the surface more time to defrost!

The third team made a high-tempo start and knocked the ball around well.

It was no more than they deserved when, following some neat passages of passing, they took the lead with a goal from Caitlin Perry.

That proved to be the only goal of a keenly contested first half that also saw both sides lose experienced players to injuries with Norma Rich and Mary Ackland being unable to continue.

It was the fourth team that started the brighter of the teams after the break. They had more purpose about their play with the emphasis on fast attack and their direct approach paid dividends when Teresa Grabauskas.

That’s how a close-encounter ended, all square at 1-1.
