With three teams in Division One still unbeaten, something had to give with them all playing in the latest round of Honiton Netball League matches, writes Steph Upson.

The first match of the night saw Otters take on Flamingos. This was a very close encounter with Flamingos taking the early lead and fantastic attack and defence play by Trish Warwick for Flamingos.

Otters managed to pull it back with amazing interceptions from Yvonne Sparkes and great centre court play by Rebecca Bess and the contest ended all square at 25-all.

The other game of the night saw HiQ take on HNC Hot Shots. HiQ got off to a good start leading the first quarter 8-6 and, with great defensive play from Sadie Moran, the flow of the game seemed to be in favour of HiQ.

The rain then set in and made the courts slippery, along with the ball flying left right and centre. Lois Norman had an exceptional game at wing attack and HNC Hot Shots managed to pull it back and win the game 27-22.

The other two games in Division One saw Blackdown take on Sidmouth Chicks. Blackdown are holding their own in the division this season, their player of the match was Sarah Fry and Chicks player was Emily Rudolph in centre court as Chicks won the game 35-17.

The last game saw HNC 3T’s take on High Tide with the latter winning 24-15. The respective Players of the Match were Niamh Wright for High Tide and Megan Gooding for HNC 3T’s.

There were just two games played in Division Two, the first of which saw Signs South West taking on Pixies with SSW winning 35-29.

The Players of the Match awards went to Jodie Potter for SSW and Georgie Selley for Pixies.

The other match saw Sidmouth Eagles defeat Cranbrook Arrow by 35 goals to 17.The Player of the Match awards went to Charly Hoskings for Eagles and Lisa Malton for Arrows.
