Truro were awarded a penalty corner and scored from a Bridgwater deflection.

Bridgwater's equaliser showed direct hockey at its best.

Janey Ferguson stepped up to make a good tackle in her own half and sent the ball forward to Jade Barry who ran the ball into the D and finished with a strike from top D.

Truro came back scoring another three in quick succession.

Then Barry got her second - a brilliant solo run beating several opponents to close the half at 2-4.

Against the run of play Truro got a fifth.

Not deterred Bridgwater continued to press forward with runs from Millie Burridge and Ellie Massey. The pressure paid off when Bridgwater took a quick free hit and Barry shot from top D giving her a hat trick and Bridgwater a well deserved third goal.
