Archant

Honiton Hornets 6, Dart III 1

Honiton were good value for this victory, writes Sophie George.

Owing to a combination of fog and ice the start was delayed.

That did not stop Honiton, fielding a strong starting eleven with most players in their preferred positions, making a bright start.

After creating a number of first quarter chances they went ahead through a well worked attack that ended with Lucy Le Cocq providing the assist and Vanessa Trude the finish.

Dart responded well and only a superb Vicky Morris tackle denied them an equaliser. The lead was doubled when Lucy Le Cocq scored a fine individual goal and it was soon three with Katrina Tucker the scorer.

After the break the Darts’ defence seemed more settled and stopped a good majority of the Honiton’s attacks. The visitors reduced the arrears, seizing on some confusion in the Honiton defence.

That proved to be as good as it got for the visitors as Honiton finished the game strongly adding three further goals. A wonderful reverse stick strike from Katrina Tucker was the pick of the last three goals.

The other scores were Vanessa Trude and Emma Adams.

Vicky Morris was named Player of the Match.

The victory means Honiton stay top of the table and next up it’s the team who sit immediately below them, Ashmoor after which there’s one more game to be negotiated before Christmas.
