Three weeks into the Honiton Netball League season and three teams in the Left Division remain unbeaten, Hi Q, Toucan Chicks and Ford & Pentecost Panthers, writes Graham Ingram.

There remains just one 100 per cent record in the Right Division, and that belongs to Flamingos.

Hi Q moved to the top of the Left Division with a big 55-12 win over HoneyZ whose defeat saw them drop to the foot of the table on goal difference.

Swaggermamas moved off the bottom when they picked up a point against Tornados whose 36-22 win moved them up to fifth after two wins in a row.

Chicks dropped to second place on goal difference after their 41-23 victory over Pixies who suffered their third defeat on the bounce. Panthers remain third following a 29-19 defeat of Otter Valley who dropped back to sixth place.
