In for the sting against Crickets

Honiton Hornets 2, Ottery Crickets 2nds 1

Honiton played their first league game against Ottery this weekend in unusually warm conditions.

This game is always closely contested yet ,from the start Honiton had the majority of possession. Their first goal game mid way through the first half when, after a period of sustained attacks, Honiton were awarded a short corner due to an Ottery infringement. The initial pass out from Jean Herniman went wide of the intended target but Sophie George collected the ball and slotted into the left hand corner of the goal with her initial strike.

The Honiton midfield and defence played well to support the forwards and the team continued to attack for the remainder of the first half. They were awarded a second goal when a quickly taken free hit from Dawn Mayo saw Lucy Le Cocq free to make a run from the half way line to score an excellent individual goal.

In the second half, Honiton continued to have the majority of possession but some great play by Ottery's defence, in particular, their goal keeper, kept the score down. Player of the match was Lucy Le Cocq.

Honiton continue to practice on a Tuesday evening at Cullompton Sports Centre at 7pm until 8.30pm meeting in Honiton at 6.30pm. New members always welcome regardless of ability. For contact details please see
