In what proved to be a hard-fought contest, the Robinettes' Shannon Gilmore marked her debut for the team with the opening goal.
The home side levelled things up, but the points went home with Budleigh thanks to a well taken goal from Bec Long.
Robinettes captain Katy Harkness put in a terrific individual shift, but the team's Player of the Match award went to the impressive Beth Wills.
gave a fine performance throughout, but was pipped for Player of the Match by Beth It's a pity the club will not be producing future women players themselves, as the girls youth team is no longer with us - at least for this current season.
