Great score puts Honiton Hornets second in table

Honiton Hornets 5, Sidmouth 2nds 0

Honiton fielded another strong team this weekend for their third league game of the season.

With two wins already, the team went for a strong attacking formation and Sidmouth found this difficult to deal with, leaving the forwards and midfield with plenty of space to attack the Sidmouth goal.

Honiton were awarded several short corners in the first 10 minutes but none quite made it past the Sidmouth goalkeeper. The first goal came from open field play where a good combination of passes left Lucy Le Cocq with space to drive the ball into the circle and score with her first strike. The second goal again came from good passing play around and into the circle. Jean Herniman pushed the ball across in front of the goalkeeper to Dawn Mayo, who got it to the left post, where Sophie George was positioned to push it into the open goal.

The third goal was scored in similar fashion with Dawn Mayo neatly slotting the ball behind the goal keeper.

In the second half, the midfield and attacking players kept the ball moving really well and again, had the majority of the possession with Amy Phillips and Lucy Le Cocq controlling the centre of the attack well. The fourth goal came from Vanessa Trude, who picked up a strong pass across the circle from Becky Hammett and Becky Bond finished with the fifth when she reverse stick deflected a shot across the circle from Sophie George. This was a great performance all round for Honiton and leaves them second in the table on goal difference. Player of the Match was Amy Phillips.
