Honiton Hornets hold a five point lead at the top of Petroc One after an emphatic 11-0 home success over a Dart III side that sat third in the table before the game.
Hornets made it seven wins from seven outings with another superb all-round performance that saw the midfield and defence working hard from the opening whistle to retain possession of the ball and keep the Dart defence under constant pressure.
There were six different goal scorers for the Hornets which reflects the strength and depth of the current team.
Most notable of the 11 goals was a well worked series of one touch short passes from a long corner with Jean Gormley finding Lizzie Burton with space to move the ball neatly to Vanessa Trude who was on hand to score one of the five she netted in the contest.
Amy Phillips scored the first goal with a strong strike from the first short corner of the match. Jenny Dolling and Helen French scored their first goals of the season. Katrina Tucker scored two text book reverse stick strikes and Sophie George was on hand to receive a neat pass from Vanessa Trude to add her name to the scorers list.
