Amber Valley Bees started 2015 with a comprehensive 4-0 win against Wulfric at Ripley Mill Hill School.
Bees were on the front foot straight from the off and, from an early short corner, Jaimie Garner claimed the first goal of the match.
Wulfric reacted well to falling behind though and pressured the Bees defence as Jade Lawman was forced into action to keep the visitors out.
Aggressive tackling from Carla Fox and Helen Charlton resulted in Karen Garner finding daughter Jaimie to make it 2-0.
Bees went 3-0 up before half-time with a quick break team goal. Helen Henley passed to Ali Scothern, who found Christie Parkin who scored after her initial effort had been saved.
The second half was a more competitive affair with Wulfric applying some good pressure, but the Bees defence held firm.
The home side stepped back on the accelerator though and resumed their dominance playing some good flowing Hockey.
The fourth and final goal came near the final whistle with Natz Saunders sliding the ball home from close range.
