SOHC Ladies’ III 1, Okehampton II 0 A topsy-turvy season for the SOHC ladies’ third team ended on a high with a fine all-round show that delivered a deserved clean sheet victory.

Okehampton would have pitched up at Sidmouth in confident mood given their loftier status in the league table.

Sidmouth made a bright and enthusiastic start and laid siege to the visitor’s goal and it was during a dominant period in the first half that the only goal of the contest was fashioned.

The goal was created out on the right wing and, when the ball was delivered across the goal Frankie Elliott squeezed it home into the far corner of the goal, beyond the reach of the Okehampton keeper.

The visitors responded well and looked to attack on the counter, but they got little change out of an organised and disciplined home defence. The end-to-end nature of the game made it an exciting affair for supporters.

You may also want to watch:

The second half produced much of the same with the home side, marshalled superbly by captain, Katie Parr, were comfortable in then way they held their lead and indeed looked to add to it, twice denied by superb saves by the Okehampton keeper.

At the other end the visitors gained a brace of short corners but could net from neither and so the home side were able to close the game out in some comfort to seal a victory that sees them complete the season in a healthy fifth spot in the table.
