Keeper Kate Whapples was kept busy early on before Teign were able to go on the attack.

The second half started with Teign making mistakes and it needed some excellent defending from Emily Judge, Jo Day and Bruce to keep Dawlish out.
Teign scored their second on the break. Emmerton found Taylor perfectly placed to hit home.
Robinson earned player of the match for her determined efforts in midfield
DART Ladies were denied a win over Isca IV in Petroc One by a last-gasp equaliser.

Two minutes from time Isca got back to 2-2 after putting pressure on the home defence.
Dart had come from behind themselves to take the lead after Isca scored in the first few minutes.

HAZEL Sampford was credited with two goals in Newton Abbot Ladies' 3-0 win over Dartmouth.
Newton Ladies dominated to such an extent that keeper Sara Neville only touched the ball once.
Dartmouth's defence certainly had their work cut out with player of the match Chloe Edwards in the thick of everything.
The first goal came from a short corner which Sampford fired in and somehow ricocheted into the goal.
Goal number two was put away by Julie Clarvis from open play. Sampford wrapped things up with the third.
While Newton were jubilant with the way they played, Dartmouth coach Kevin Edwards admitted he had concerns, especially the number of changes in the team every week.
"I think it is taking us a while to adjust to the pace and strength of this league," said Edwards.
"We are still playing Petroc Two hockey in Petroc One and it does not work.
"The work rate is there though and typified by the likes of Bonny Chivers who played out of position well."
Newton Abbot have no game this Saturday. They return to the fray in two weeks time with a game against Teign. Dartmouth's next game is at home to Sidmouth & Ottery on the same day.
