WATTON Ladies continued their strong start to the Women's East 2NE Hockey Division with this win on Saturday against Old Buckenham.

The first half saw a lot of pressure from Watton, finally converted into a lead when Lucy Briggs scored from a close-range shot.

A well-struck shot by Lynsey Reeve at the top of the D from a short corner was deflected into the bottom corner by Charlotte Paine to take Watton to 2-0 at half-time.

Old Buckenham scored from a penalty stroke after a quick break left them one-on-one with Serena Scott, who saved the shot but was unable to clear the ball.
