Curry hat-trick as Honiton ladies prove too hot for Withy

There was a terrific turnout of support for the ladies at Allhallows and the first half saw two competitive teams battle it out with just Withy getting onto the score sheet to hold that 15 points half-time advantage.

Having struggled playing up the slope in the first half it was a very different story from the home side after the break. Whereas the first period had seen Honiton struggle to get any fluid passages of play going, the second half saw plenty of that and the try count began to rise!

Tasha Currie scored a hat-trick of tries and there were other tries from Abi Chalk and Sophie Jones while Jasmin Larcombe slotted a trio of conversions.

Despite the scoring Honiton didn’t have it all their own way for Withy did cross the home whitewash twice more, but the difference between the teams at the final whistle was in the conversion count with those Larcombe kicks proving decisive.

There was some great tackling by all in the Honiton ranks with special mention reserved for the industry in defence of Fiona Hanratty, Charley Keirle and Abie Chalk.

The youngest member of the team, Megan Lawrence, is clearly improving each time she plays, but the forward of the game award went to a deserving Chalk while hat-trick lass Currie was the pick of the backs.
