PUBLISHED: 09:53 05 October 2015 | UPDATED: 09:53 05 October 2015


The first couple of weeks of a new Honiton Netball league term have seen some interesting results, writes Graham Ingram.

In Division One three teams remain undefeated after the third week, with Uplowman, Flamingos and Hi Q setting the standard.

Uplowman have recorded victories over Signs South West and Tip Top Trees, with Flamingos successful against Tip Top Trees and Otters whilst Hi Q have notched up wins over Toucan Chicks and once again, Tip Top Trees.

After an opening game defeat against Flamingos the Otters bounced back with a victory over Signs South West, who held fifth place due to a win over JD Tyres in their opening game. Whilst both Tip Top Trees and Signs South West have played three games each both Toucan Chicks and JD Tyres have only been in action once each.

In Division Two there are just two teams that remain unbeaten – Howden Hawks with three wins and Ford & Pentecost Panthers with two wins, and next week they meet each other, so something will have to give.

Hawks have recorded wins over Pixies, Sidmouth Toucans and Swaggermamas, whilst Panthers have been successful against Swaggermamas and Beer Blazers. Both Swaggermamas and Beer Blazers have yet to gain a point, with Blazers other defeats being at the hands of Toucans and Otter Valley.

Otter Valley hold third place behind Hawks and Toucans. This is due to victories over Beer and Pixies, whilst they suffered an opening day defeat to Blackdown Ladies who lost their other game to Toucans. Pixies have just one point from their game against Otter Valley.
