Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) ladies’ first team finally got their long awaited, and much deserved, first win of the season against a fiery Mid Somerset side.
The first goal came from ‘Chick of the Match’ Frankie Elliot who, after several shots on goal, snuck in behind the keeper off a rebound.
The midfield continued to work hard - great distribution from centre midfield Maisie Pritchard allowed Ellie Marok and Nikki Lockyer to make some fantastic runs down the wings and into the D.
Unfortunately, Mid Somerset equalised quickly - despite some hard fought tackling from Amy Woodruff, Lucy Lefebvre and Katie Jackson. But SOHC soon replied with another goal from Frankie Elliot.
Despite some lovely passages of play, and some great saves from Becky Delasalle, Mid Somerset retaliated right before the break.

With it all to play for SOHC desperately wanted to start the second half strong - and they did just that. A perfect hit out from Amy Woodruff found Karen Dutton out wide, she soon saw Sam Parkyn in the D who calmly beat the defender and slotted it in for her first goal of the season.
Attacking continued, but Mid Somerset certainly weren’t down and out and proved to be a constant threat. But SOHC stuck at it with some great hassling and channelling down the wings from Katie Ackland and Katie Dean.

The ladies were unlucky to score again after winning countless short corners, but the final whistle came as a relief for most! It was a brilliant team effort from everyone, who all kept their composure throughout.
This Saturday (November 21), the ladies’ take on Clifton in Bristol - another must win game – as they bid to move out of the relegation zone.
