Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) men’s third team were 5-0 winners when they visited a strong Bridgwater C side.

Given that SOHC began the game with just 10 players and without any shirts, they made a slick start and took the lead when James Redish slipped the ball between the goalkeepers legs and into the net.

Despite being a man down, SOHC worked hard to deny the Somerset side time and space.

Eventually the 11th player arrived and half-time came with a full team on the pitch and a single goal lead.

After the break, SOHC dominated and the four further goals they scored were reward for some enterprising attacking play.

Tom Vanstone score twice, one from a short corner and the other via a penalty flick.

Peter Milwer applied a terrific sweep from the penalty spot and the other goal was scored by Ashok Prasad who marked his promotion from the club’s fourth XI 4s with a deflection on the back post.
