Victory for under-staffed Men’s team and another win for Ladies 1s
West Women’s Division 1 South – Teign Ladies 1 vs Exe 2
Teign ladies 1s continued their successful campaign by beating local Devon hockey club rivals, Exe 2’s. Teign started strong, pressing Exe at every opportunity, which quickly paid off with an early goal for Alice Hudson.
Exe, who were so far unbeaten this season put up a strong fight, with a barrage of shots on goal in the second half. But Teign keeper and player of the match Simone Quinn stopped everything that came her way. Teign defined until the final whistle, securing the 3 points. The game ended at a 1-0 win to Teign. Next week Teign are away to Shepton Mallet.
West Woman’s Petroc Division 1 – Teign Ladies 2 vs Dart 1
Teign 2s travelled away to Totnes to play Dart 1s, who only had 1 loss so far this season. The game started late due to the previous game overrunning so had little time to warm up with the ball. Dart started strongly and caught Teign off guard, scoring a well-worked goal. Teign countered but were unable to get in the Dart D, and with Teign pressing high, Dart easily found the gaps and scored 4 quick goals before the break.
Teign pushed hard in the second half and put Dart under more pressure than the first half. But with a player carrying an injury and another leaving the pitch early, Dart scored a well-struck goal. Teign 2s need to work on the positives and get a much-needed win next weekend. The game ended at a 5-0 win to Dart. Next week Teign are home to Ashmoor.
West Men’s Riviera Division 1 – Teign Men vs Torbay 2
Yet to play a game this season with a full squad of men, Teign travelled away to Torbay with 9 players. Unphased by the lack of squad numbers, Teign started the game well and rode the storm of the pressure of the opposition, before turning the ball over and enabling Teign to score first. Torbay came back to make it 1-1 before halftime.
In the second half, Teign’s game plan was to remain defensive and catch them on the counter-attack; their plan was successful. Teign scored 5 goals in the second half to finish with a 6-1 win. Next week Teign are home to East Devon 2.
