Honiton travelled to Exeter University this weekend for their league match against ISCA 4 on the water based pitch.

Despite an initial soaking from the weather, Honiton started strongly with a number of attacks into the ISCA circle and were rewarded with a well-placed goal from Jean Herniman from a Julie Tucker pass.

As Honiton struggled, at times, to cope with the different pitch surface and the speed of the ball, ISCA continued to attack. Honiton's defence remained sound at the back and, with a little help from the post on one occasion, kept the ISCA players from scoring in the first half. The second half went much the same way as the first half with both teams attacking strongly.

Honiton had chased down several balls to the back line and had several attempts into the ISCA circle, but none were successful. At the other end of the pitch, Honiton's defence remained strong (with a little bit more help from the post), Sue Stone in goal having another excellent game.

Despite the best efforts of ISCA, Honiton stayed ahead. Player of the match was Sue Stone, closely followed by Julie Tucker who had an equally excellent game in mid field.

Next week's match will be against Dawlish at Ottery.
