Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) Under-14 girls served up an excellent all-round performance when they travelled to Torquay Grammar School to take part in a tournament.

It was a case of ‘everyone stepping forward with an upped game’ as the SOHC youngsters won two, drew one and lost just the one – and that to a single goal – in their four games.

Amy Scott and Abbie French were a constant threat with great movement and tenacity in their forward roles while Macy Parsons and Lydia Gammon were a dynamic pairing in midfield, distributing, shooting and defending at pace.

Martha Goodal showed real promise in midfield and upfront and Jess Perry was marvellously versatile showing some terrific playmaking skills.

Leonie Morgan was her ever solid self in her defensive role and Karhys Flemington was not only brilliantly reliable in defence, but dynamic in driving through the middle to put a few dangerous balls into the D. Amy Davies marshalled the team with real discipline and organisational skills from the back and was also sharp and nimble when put under any sort of pressure.
