In the Sussex Hockey Ladies League Division 1, Hailsham 1st XI beat Lewes Ladies 3rd XI by a massive 6-0 margin.

Hailsham started the game confidently, and it was no surprise when they opened the scoring on seven minutes, Sue Cable latching onto a Katie James cross and sending the ball high into the net.

But despite creating many chances, Hailsham could not increase their lead, and went off at half time with a frustrating 0-1 scoreline. The second half saw more Hailsham pressure, and substitute Susie Smith scored seven minutes in, quickly followed by a Katie James goal a minute later. Six minutes after that Alison Headey’s deflected short corner strike made it four, and shortly after Smith added her second and Hailsham’s fifth.

The comfortable victory for Hailsham was rounded off when Cable added her second 10 minutes from the end.

In the Sussex Ladies League Division 3, Hailsham Ladies 2nd XI beat South Downs Ladies 1st XI 4-0. Goals came from Amy Green (3) and Michelle Page.
