Guernsey's Ship and Crown Puffins came from behind to win the Channel Islands Hockey Upton Trophy against Jersey side RWB.

Goals from Sally McDowell and Sarah Heelis put the Jersey league champions 2-0 up in the opening stages.

The Guernsey side then came to life, with Mickey de Vial grabbing their first goal shortly before the break.

Two second-half strikes from Tracey Powell gave Puffins the lead, which they held until the final whistle.

Puffins co-captain Debbie Wilson said: "It was a fantastic team effort.

"RWB played well, but overall I feel we deserved the win."
