Honiton Hornets were duly crowned champions of Petroc Two after a 3-0 win at Dart III.

The home side looked much changed from the one thrashed 11-0 when the teams met in East Devon earlier in the season.

Maddy Raynor moved into a centre midfield role to boost the attacking options and Hornets began brightly, but found the home goalkeeper to be in inspired form.

Jean Gormley had a number of shots on goal in the first half, but could not find the back of the net and it was only a stunning reverse stick shot from Katrina Tucker which managed to finally defeat the impressive keeper to see Hornets into the break with a 1-0 lead.

The attacking play – and hard work – continued in the second half.

The win was sealed thanks to a couple of pieces of excellent individual skill from Katrina Tucker.

Maddy Raynor was voted player of the match with Katrina Tucker just behind.

Hornets were also 4-0 winners when they met Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club (SOHC) IV.

Once again it was a case of the opposition goalkeeper being of the exceptional variety that restricted the goals for Hornets who eventually secured a 4-0 win.

Katrina Tucker helped herself to another brace of goals and there other players to score were Amy Phillips and Vanessa Trude, the ladder netting a fine individual goal when she saw off a number of challenges before drilling the ball home.

Hazel Teasdale had a great game with some determined attacking play and was named as Player of the Match.

Honiton Hornets are always keen to welcome new players to their friendly and competitive team. Visit www.wcwhl.co.uk for contact details.
