Another short-corner goal cut the gap again but Buccs held on and go into this weekend’s double-header against Bournemouth and Cheltenham on a high.
The 2nds suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Westberries, despite playing some of their best hockey of the season in the first half.
Westberries took the lead against the run of play and a second goal on the counter-attack gave them a 2-0 half-time advantage. Clio McKenna pulled one back after penalty corner routine paid off but, although Lucinda Dawson and Ali Perrio kept the pressure on, Buccs could not find a leveller.
They bounced back the following day, however, beating fellow mid-table side Newquay 4-2 in Cornwall.
Buccs 3rds claimed a 2-0 success at Wimborne Wayfarers, while the 4ths defeated Frome 2nds 5-0 thanks to a brace from Claire Toogood and one goal apiece from Penny Post, Livvy Wills and Clare Elsley.
The 5ths rounded off a good day for the ladies section of the club with a 1-0 victory over Mendip 3rds.
Claire Connell grabbed the only goal, while new keeper Lisa Hamblin finished with a clean sheet at the other end.
