Essex Open were brought down to earth by Team Bath Toucans in their Premier League Division Two contest.

The visitors were overwhelmed in the first quarter, conceded 10 goals without reply as Bath built a 15-6 lead.

And they were outscored 9-2 at the start of the second quarter as Bath, relegated from Division One last season, showed their strength.

Essex kept fighting hard, with Kyra Boyce making her debut at wing defence, but were 30-13 down at half time.

Sophia Sefton and Leah Hayzelden combined for seven goals early in the third quarter, but Bath ran away with it after that to move 48-23 up.

Louise Acons and Monet Jervier made their Essex debuts in the fnal quarter, but the team suffered against a fit and athletic opponent and eventually lost 70-30.

Essex: Stewart, Spencer, R Wilks, I Morgan-Smith, Lawrence, Hayzelden, Reynolds-Blanche, Boyce, Acons, Jervier.
