Solent came from behind to secure their first win of the season.

In icy cold and, at one point, snowy conditions, the Ryde team found themselves behind at the end of the first quarter after some accurate shooting from the Gurnard attack.
Solent found their feet early on in the second period and a succession of pressing attacks led to a flurry of goals.
In one of her first full senior matches, player of the match Charley Makepeace worked hard and linked up well with Solent’s shooters Lucy Archer and Lorraine Parker.
Making the most of Solent’s obvious height advantage in the shooting circle, the youngster played many accurate high balls into goal shooter Lorraine.
This technique and some solid defensive work from goal defence Mandy Price and goalkeeper Jo Brown helped Solent extend their lead.
In the final quarter, Gurnard managed to reduce what was at one point a ten-goal deficit but Solent showed resilience and stayed focused for the win.
