Honiton Netball League

Division One: Wasps 51, Visions 20; Flamingos 40, Tip Top Trees 14.

Visions, who were in with a chance of the title, have suffered two big defeats recently and now look set to finish mid table. Wasps beat them 51-20 – in their last game of the campaign. Wasps took the first quarter 10-4. The second quarter was even but Wasps turned up the heat and moved 32-16 ahead, and dominated the final quarter. Now Wasps have to wait for Flamingos and Angels, who play in the last game of the season to see if they have done enough!

Flamingos against Tip Top Trees was experience versus youth, with the older more experienced side triumphing in the end with a 40-14 win for the Flamingos. The game saw a fine contest, particularly between Sarah Clark at GD for Flamingos and Danni Wakley at GA for the Trees.

Division Two: Sidmouth Toucans 51, Lyme Bay 7; NAS 30, JD Tyres 27

With neither of the top sides in action it was an opportunity for JD Tyres to end the season with a victory to go second – or for NAS to gain the points to keep their outside chances of a top two spot alive. NAS had the better of the early play to go 7-5 ahead. With scoring even in the second period JD were still just 2 goals adrift at half way at 13-15. T

he third quarter saw NAS increase their lead – to 3 goals at 22-19. With the final period going goal for goal it was NAS 30 JD Tyres 27 at the final whistle. Tanya Broom had a great game for JD whilst Anna Hoondert was the NAS star.

Final game tonight was between Sidmouth Toucans and Lyme Bay – with both sides looking for their first win of the season. It proved to be the Toucans night as they dominated the play from start to finish to record a comfortable 51-7 victory and saw them continue to move up the table whilst leaving Lyme Bay anchored to the foot of the division despite good play from Rachel Edwards. Once again it was Jo white who caught the eye for Toucans.
