Sidmouth & Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) ladies’ 1st XI made it 13 wins from as many Sedgemoor One matches as they defeated White Eagles II 10-1.

Despite having not played for three weeks, SOHC were quickly into their stride with some terrific passing and linking between the midfield and forwards and that resulted in a brace of early goals, both clincially tucked away by Alice Dormer.

White Eagles were competitive and did manage to get a goal of their own in the first half, but three more from the table-toppers saw them into a 5-1 interval lead.

After the break SOHC played into the face of a strong wind but continued to play on the front foot and they scored five more goals to seal yet another double figure success.

The full list of goal scorers read: Alice Dormer (3), Becca Tedford (2), Emily Ackland (2) Taz Murray (2) and Alice Please.

It was hat-trick scoring Dormer, who served up another superb all-round performance, that was chosen as the 'Player of the Day' award.

SOHC have now scored 102 and conceded just nine in their 13-match winning run. Tomorrow (Saturday) they travel to meet sixth placed Chard who they beat 10-1 back in November.

A 14th straight win would then set the ladies up for the following Saturday (March 7) when they will be taking on second placed side and a win there would leave them one more win from being crowned league champions.
