It was back to a full week of fixtures and in division one it meant victories for the top three sides, with wins for Uplowman, OPG and Flamingos, writes Graham Ingram.

The last two quarters belonged to Flamingos who ended 46-14 ahead.

Uplowman held on to the top spot thanks to a big win over Tip Top Trees, who after five games are still looking for their first point. With Mandy Norman in great form for Uplowman, Uplowman led from the start and recorded a 64-13 win over 3Ts, for whom Molly Simpson played well.

OPG maintained their second place in the division with a win over Signs South West. Helen Wright was the star for OPG whilst Debbie Wheeler caught the eye for SSW

It was a game in which both GDs excelled – Louise Neilson for Toucans and Sarah Arscott for the Dairy. At the top of the table Hi Q made it six wins out of six games with their win over Water Babes. With Jo Channing in fine form they led from the start, 11-1 ahead at quarter time, 17-2 at half way and 22-4 at the end of the third period.
