Honiton back to league action

After the Christmas break it was back to the league with a vengeance!

HHHC 1, Teignmouth 2

After the Christmas break it was back to the league with a vengeance! Honiton, playing at home to Teignmouth, on a somewhat soggy pitch after the week's snow had thawed and the heavy rainfall of the previous night, had hoped to start 2010 with a win, but it was not to be!

The first to score were the visitors, when a penalty stroke was awarded and it was successfully converted.

But refusing to be downhearted the team rallied to the attack. Before the half time whistle was blown, Jean Herniman passed the ball at a penalty corner to Amy Phillips, strategically placed to the centre back of the Teignmouth circle. She moved it to Sophie George, likewise well positioned, and she was able to hit the back board in resounding fashion! With the score line equal, play resumed once more in earnest with both sides trying to outdo the other - it was unfortunate for the home side that, what they thought to be a Dawn Mayo goal was disallowed as this would have meant going into the break a goal up.

During the second half it was the visitors who managed to score and leave the pitch the victors, although in this half play was rather more concentrated in the Teignmouth half of the pitch. Unfortunately Honiton could not force the ball past the visitors' goalkeeper and over the line.
