Netball disrupted by rain

PUBLISHED: 20:37 31 October 2012

Only two second division games took place at Colyton this week as the fixtures at Honiton were disrupted by torrential rain!

With Hi Q not playing due to the weather Pixies made the most of the opportunity to move level on points with them when they overcame Water Babes in a low scoring game.

At quarter time Pixies had led 7-0 and looked on course for a reasonable score, but the Water Babes defence had other thoughts and with Sam Clarke playing well they restricted the Pixies’ attack so that at half way the score was 11-1. With Sarah Green once again doing well for Pixies they proved too strong for the Babes and finished victors by 14-4.

JD Tyres made it four wins in a row when they met Otter Valley Dairy. The first quarter was a low-scoring affair with the Tyres edging 5-2 ahead. With Dana Woods playing well by half way JD had increased their advantage to 14-4, building on this to start the final quarter 23-8 in front.

Although Rachel Tucker did well for Otter Valley they could not get into the game and JD Tyres finished with a fine 31-12 victory that saw them move into third place despite having been deducted 3 points for not fulfilling their first game of the season.
