Honiton Netball League latest - Toucan Chicks and Hi Q still head table
- Credit: Archant
It’s now looking like a two-team race for the first place in the Honiton Netball League Left Division as both Hi Q and Toucan Chicks continue to sport 100 per cent records after the latest set of matches, writes Graham Ingram.
Hi Q just hold the top spot on goal difference by a single goal after Toucan Chicks were 49-17 victors over a Panthers side who, before their previous game, had won every time they played, but have now suffered back-to-back reversals. That score line meant that Panthers did not even have the comfort of a losing point and dropped five points off the top spot.
Hi Q were up against Pixies, who last week had jumped up to fourth, but they have now slipped back to seventh after a 45-20 loss.
Tornados and SSW had a close game with Signs South West coming through to win by 35-30 and go level on points with Otter Valley who moved to fourth thanks to their 48-28 win over Swaggermamas.
3Ts were the biggest climbers, moving up two places thanks to their win over HoneyZ, who remain bottom and still looking for that elusive first victory. The score was 43-25 to Tip Top Trees.

In the Right Division, only Flamingos have an unbeaten record, but both Beer Blazers and HNC Hot Shots are nipping at their heels with just two points separating the top three teams.
Flamingos maintained their 100 per cent record with a comfortable 60-26 win over JD Tyres, that saw the Tyres drop from third place back to sixth in the table. Beer kept up their challenge with a very close encounter against Blackdown, who must be the unluckiest team in the division, having lost by two goals and previously losing by one - and also drawing!

In their latest outing they went down 35-37 to the Blazers, who are having a good season.
Hot Shots moved back up to third with a 53-42 victory over Cranbrook Arrows. Otters were the biggest climbers, winning their fourth game in a row after their opening day defeat to Flamingos. Their latest action saw them defeat Howden Hawks 39-20 with Hawks just gaining a point to keep them off bottom spot.
Hawks, like High Tide, are still looking for a win. High Tide met Sidmouth Toucans and picked up another point from their 54-45 defeat.
They have now played six games and obtained a point from every one!
