Dartmoor v Greenbottles – Women
After skipping the normal formalities Dartmoor and Greenbottless took to the field ready to play a good game of hockey. If the spectators had paid money to watch they wouldn’t have been disappointed, the first quarter had everything, great breaks, super defence and free hits going the full length of the field. It didn’t seem to matter what each team did, they couldn’t break through the defence.
A quick break saw Greens come back with determination and nothing was going to stand in their way, except the Dartmoor wall of defence. With each Greenbottles charge Tash, Geet and Gayle stood true and fed the ball back to the Dartmoor forwards.
After half time it seemed that no one could break through, Sarah Fry tried her hardest for Greenbottles and Sophie Waters’ well placed stick stopped dead any Dartmoor attacks.
The 4th quarter saw Dartmoor put pressure on the Greenbottles goalie early, only to have Nancy intercept a Dartmoor pass and take it down the field where Sarah was able to slip one past the Dartmoor defence.
A few late charges from Dartmoor saw Greens on the backfoot, but alas they couldn’t break through.

Dartmoor vs Greenbottles – Men
In a topsy turvy contest between Greenbottles and Dartmoor men, neither team managed to come out on top with the final result being 2-2.
The first quarter began with a quick push from Darts which saw Will Bayley miss a shot at goal. What continued was an attack and many shots from the Greens team that saw them score at the end of the quarter through Scott Copping.
The second quarter was an arm wrestle that saw many shots but no goals. Following the break Greens continued their push and found many opportunities to score through penalty corners but were unable to convert. However, Dartmoor managed an equaliser with a pass from Grant managing to find John in the circle, resulting in a clean shot and goal. Three quarter time 1-1.
The arm wrestle continued in the 4th with Darts managing to convert a short corner mid term. With both teams tiring near the end of the game Greenbottles also managed a clear pass into the circle to Trent Waters who deflected expertly over the goalie. A big thanks to the fill ins that helped top up the teams on either side
