Despite a much-improved second half performance, Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club’s (SOHC) men’s fourth team was unable to overturn a first-half, three-goal deficit and ultimately lost 3-1 to Taunton Vale.

Playing at home, the side was by no means outplayed, but the visitors played some flowing hockey at times, which resulted in a goal on each occasion.

For the most part, the first half was a competitive affair but SOHC failed to turn any of its first-half pressure into goals.

After the interval, the home side attacked with renewed vigour and soon got a goal back, with Jonty Rider scoring after a good run.

Despite the early goal, the side was not able to capitalise on it and could not reduce the deficit any further.
