Hands off our title!
That’s the message from the dominant force in Manx women’s hockey.
Reigning champions Vikings A launched their defence of the PWC Premier Division title after demolishing Bacchas A 13-2.
The incredible scoreline was led by Kim Carney who hit four, Sarah Blackman and 15 year-old Breesha Foxton who netted hat-tricks, another 15 year-old - Chelsea Bawden - Zoe Carrney and an own goal.
Shell-shocked Bacchas A, who were last season’s runners-up and expected to challenge for the title, replied through Chelsea Golding (two).
Mia Greenwood (two) and Danni Kelly grabbed the goals as Castletown A saw off Bacchas B 3-1.
In the PWC men’s Premier Division, champions Bacchas A made a winning start.
