Uplowman maintained their 100 per cent record and their place at the top of the table with a win over JD Tyres in the latest round of matches, writes Graham Ingram.

Despite starting 18-32 down they had gained the lead at 43-36 by halfway and, from there, they didn’t look back, going on to win by 68-44.

Claire Tom had a fine game for the league leaders whilst Tanya Broom once again starred for JD. The win puts Uplowman two points clear at the top of the table.

They are being chased hard by Signs South West and OPG who both recorded victories this week to move onto 13 points. SSW were up against early league pace makers Pixies who have had a recent run of losses. With Rowan Williams playing well for Signs and Siobhan Richards the game was keenly contested, particularly in the first quarters, but in the third period SSW moved 52-42 in font and went on to win by 59-45.

They moved into second place by virtue of a superior goal difference to OPG. OPG were up against Blackdown Ladies for whom Nicki Snell turned in another fine performance enabling the Ladies to still hold the lead at the end of the third quarter, by 43-40.

The final period saw OPG dominate with Janku Salzwedel having a fine game and OPG winning by 57-45. The fourth game saw Hi Q up against Tip Top Trees in the closest contest of the night. The first quarter saw 3Ts leading by 31-23, ahaead 37-30 at half way and with Kerri Callon doing well the Trees were 42-36 up going into the final period.

Despite good work from Rachel Cavin for Hi Q the Trees held on to win by 47-44.

Latest results.

OPG (0) 57, Blackdown Ladies (40) 45; Hi Q (16) 44, Tip Top Trees (30) 47; Uplowman (18) 68, JD Tyres (32) 44; Signs South West (20) 59, Pixies (34) 45.
