Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club recorded two wins at the weekend, but some of the teams had heavy defeats, writes Andrew Coley.
The men’s first team beat Bristol Firebrands 3, 2-1 in a home fixture while the men’s fourth team travelled to Exeter and Culm Vale Hornets and recorded a similar success in a match played at Cullompton, winning 1-2.
The men’s second team were hoping to replicate their own success from recent weeks but lost 6-1 when they travelled to Yeovil and Sherborne 2.
The men’s third team didn’t have a match.
It was a tough weekend on the women’s side of the club, with all four sides losing.
The first team took on Bridgwater 1 in a home game and were defeated 2-3 while the seconds lost 0-2 when they played against visitors Exe 4.
Both the third and fourth teams had away fixtures, with the thirds losing 10-0 against Isca-Exeter University 5 and the fourths beaten 5-0 against Taw Valley 2.
This weekend will see all eight sides turning out for a match, which is the first time for many weeks.
