Having taken four points with a win and a draw in their opening two games, SOHC men’s first team suffered their first defeat since January when beaten 3-0 at Okehampton.

The SOHC cause was not helped by the fact that they travelled missing a number of regular players and they soon found themselves two goals down! The first was a clinical centre forward finish and the second was a penalty corner that was blasted past a helpless Eddie Rudolph, who was making his debut.

Things got worse for SOHC with a green card for Lee Clayden followed by a yellow for Josh Miller.

The team dug deep and even created a number of penalty corners. However, a goal was not forthcoming and half-time arrived with the home side leading 2-0.

During the break, SOHC tweaked their formation in a bid to get back into the contest.

They created a number of ultimately wasted short corner opportunities and the home side added a late third from a penalty corner to seal victory.
