ISCA completed a resounding victory away in Cardiff.

Their seventh win in eight games came courtesy of an exhibition of attacking play from the forwards.

Goals from Jon Wright (3), Tom Poustie (2), Sam Palfrey, Sam Lynch, Liam Wakefield and an own goal completed the scoring.

Three lapses in concentration defensively were the only concerns in an otherwise excellent display.

Conference South

It was Hornets that took the lead through Rob Yarde's hard work and Darren Winstanley's cool finishing.

This was the way it stayed until half-time. Eight goals were scored in the second half with all four of Hornet's goals coming from Pete Randerson who has benefited from his spell in the first team.

South East 1

Isca dominated this match from the start, scoring from both short corners and free play.

In a change of approach, Isca won more short corners, as well as converting more – using a variety of routines. It was a solid Isca performance, which they will hope to replicate next week against Torbay.

South East 2

Adam Tremlett opened the scoring early thanks to a perfect cross from Hywell Williams. Bridgwater equalised from a short corner with their second attempt.

Williams then struck from the top of the D after weaving through the Bridgwater defence.

Jack Sergeant whipped in another great cross for Tremlett to finish again to make it 3-1. Jack Eaton Jones was awarded man of the match for stellar work on the right wing.

Up against a side that had only dropped two points all season this looked like it was going to be a one-sided match for the Hornets.

However, they will feel unlucky not to have taken all three points. Mid Somerset took an early lead through a quick breakaway.

After that the ball predominantly stayed in Mid Somerset's half. The Hornets equalised but could not find a winner.

South East 3

Despite the score the home team played a full part in a good game of hockey.

An early penalty flick brought a vital save from East's keeper Joe Embery.

However, the East Devon forwards were on form with a hat-trick for Ian Parish, two for Bill Horner and one for Matt Pacey.

West Premier Division 1

Isca remained on top throughout the match.

The team worked well to keep possession and remained strong in defence, only conceding one penalty corner.

Lorel Wallis scored a hat-trick including an impressive reverse stick deflection into the net.

Scorers also included Katie Tavener and Hattie Robinson.

This was a disappointing result for Exeter after some close games in recent weeks.

Despite a man-of-the-match performance from defender Rosie Barrett, it was not enough to stop the home side running in four second-half scores.

West premier 2b

Isca enjoyed the lion's share of possession but Redland took the lead against the run of play.

Isca equalised in the second half, with Becky Brookes shooting hard from the top of the D.

The work rate from Isca was top class, but a quick break resulted in the winning goal for Redland – with the ball deflected under the crossbar.

Petroc 1

A well-organised and fired up Isca team were unlucky not to come away with three points against Teign A.

They had continued pressure and shots on the goal throughout the match, but some outstanding keeping by the young Teign goalkeeper denied them.

Solid defensive work by Isca's Freya Barlow and Bex Richardson in turn gave Isca the attacking edge over Teign.

Petroc 2

This was a hard-fought game where both sides played some structured hockey and both teams could have scored a few more goals.

Exe scored first from a ball that was deflected in. Nicky Southgate got on the end of a cross to equalise and Jo Burrington had a good strike well saved.

Isca had more chances in the second half and score a second through Lily Caldwell. They then defended well to secure the win.

The game started with pressure from Isca which Exe resisted. Exe held their own and on a breakaway attack from Sarah Bennett got a deflected own goal.

Isca's relentless pressure brought them an equaliser just before half-time.

After the break Isca came back strong and Exe did well to limit them to only scoring one goal in the second half.
