After a good draw last week playing against local side, Sidmouth - in which Sophie George and Vanessa Trude scored the two goals and Julie Reed was voted Player of the Match by her team-mates - Honiton travelled to Totnes for a league fixture against Dart Hockey Club.

The opposition comprised mainly a very young/teenage side but they certainly did not lack courage, stamina or skill and gave Honiton some tight moments throughout the whole match, but in the event it was Honiton who left the pitch as victors.

Sophie George, some 20 minutes into the first half, took on a stray ball, following a Dart penalty corner in which the ball had been cleared from the circle by the Honiton defence. From the half way line, she worked her way up the pitch, gliding past those who tried to intercept her and, once in the circle, scored.

Honiton's second goal came in the second half when Jackie Pinn had passed the ball to Becky Bond. In turn she sent it up the right side of the pitch, where Jean Herniman was able to move across to pick it up and speed it on its way from the edge of the circle across the goal line. Player of the Match: Vanessa Trude.
