Top teams, top action in Honiton League
PUBLISHED: 19:43 18 November 2010
Division One: Keeley’s Angels 47, Weather Girls 11; Flamingos 36, Bo-Peeps 17.
The top two teams were back in action this week – against the two teams at the foot of the table.
Flamingos took all three points, while Bo-Peeps missed out on a point by two goals! With Katie Marsh doing well in defence for Flamingos, the Bo-Peeps’ attack found the going hard and, although Debbie Wheeler worked hard for them, they were always chasing the game and went down by 36-17.
In the other game Keeley’s Angels were up against the Weather Girls for the first time this season. The Angels dominated the first quarter and didn’t allow the Weather Girls to score a goal and so started the second period 16 goals to the good.
By half way Angels led 27-4 and going into the final session were 36-10 up. With Rachel Keeley in great form at WA, they dominated the final session, despite hard work from Rebecca Green at centre for the Girls, to finish victors by 47-11.
Division Two: Hi Q 37, Sidmouth Toucans 24; Howden’s Hawks 47, Lyme Bay 14; Tip Top Trees 47, JD Tyres 16.
All four of the top teams were in action- with leaders Hi Q up against third placed Sidmouth Toucans.
Closest game of the night was the Hi Q against Toucans game.
The game started evenly with Hi Q edging the first period 8-7. By half way they had moved three goals in front to 16-13. As is often the case, the third period proved pivotal.
With Linzi Bennett in great defensive form, the Toucans’ attack found the going tough. This gave the Hi Q attack some breathing space and at the start of the final quarter they had moved 27-17 ahead. Anna Rowson worked the Toucans hard in the final period and it was more even, with a 37-24 win for Hi Q and a point for Sidmouth.
Howden Hawks had a much easier game on paper – especially when they found that Lyme Bay were two players short – with only five available for the match.
Lyme Bay had the better of the first 10 minutes whilst Hawks got used to their numerical advantage and for a short period held the lead but the final score was 47-14 to Hawks.
Final game of the night saw undefeated Tip Top Trees beat JD Tyres. With Harriet Eaton once again in great form for the Trees they dominated the game from the start. Although the Tyres, and Dawn Power in particular worked hard it was 3Ts who led from the start to record a convincing 47-16 win that kept them in second place, one point behind Hi Q.
