Sidmouth and Ottery (SOHC) Ladies first team enjoyed a handsome 5-0 victory when they met ECVH in their final friendly outing before the start of the new league campaign, writes Nicky Lockyer

In a fine all-round display there was opportunity for many more goals, with the ball residing in SOCHs half for the majority of the game.

The new rules came into play many times in this game, with players on both sides breaking too early on too many occasions to count! This sent them back to the half way line, and Sidmouth scored their first by taking advantage of this. A deflection from Maisie Pritchard from Karen Duttons original strike, tipped the ball over the goalkeeper and into the net.

Some fine team work from Frankie, Sam and Ellie, saw their short passes up the pitch converted to a goal. Ellie receiving the ball at the top of the D and sending a powerful slap to the backboard. Ellie got the better of the goalkeeper again, deflecting the ball past her once again.

Frankie was the next to get her name onto the score sheet, this time from another well worked short corner routine.

The last goal saw Frankie, outside the D, pass the ball to Katie on the right post, who calmly slipped the ball across the goalkeeper to Maisie, who was waiting on the left post to slip it in.

The ladies start their league campaign this Saturday with a home game against Old Bristolians.
