Cobras find their form

11:15 22 November 2012




VENNERS Bakery Cobras finally found their form in the North Devon Netball League this week fighting throughout to draw with clubmates Venners Bakery Vipers in the top division.

The scores were tied at every break and a six man Vipers pulled away in the final minutes, but top shooting by Hannah Evans ensured they could not capitalise and take a victory.

South Molton Falcons took away the Blue Oasis undefeated record in Division 2 by just one goal, thanks to great shooting by April Britton. Only two goals separated Reeds Silverside and Carol Anne Amethysts.

Sunday matches suit Hartland Harriers as they achieved their first win with Naila Rana leading her team to edge past North Devon Homes in Division 3. Titans Pluto once again had a close match, coming through just one goal ahead of Carol Anne Golds.

In Division 4, Carol Anne Jets and Georgeham Rocks were close throughout, but Jets’ shooter Lucy Down gave her team the win.
