Sidmouth Toucans slip up again in Honiton Netball League

PUBLISHED: 21:33 27 June 2013 | UPDATED: 21:33 27 June 2013

Sidmouth Toucans slipped to another defeat in their latest Honiton and District Summer Netball league encounter, writes Graham Ingram.

Their latest reversal came at the hands of in-form Signs South West who had trailed 18-24 before claiming a halftime 40-32 lead.

Despite Helen Terry having a good game in attack for the Toucans they found themselves chasing the game and they eventually succumbed to a 66-43 defeat.

After the disappointment of Water Babes withdrawal from the league there was another ‘hiccup’ when Pixies were unable to field a team due to injuries and holidays – they therefore had to forfeit their match against Hi Q.

It is all very tight at the top with just four points separating Flamingos in top spot from Sidmouth Toucans in seventh.

Flamingos held on to the top place when they recorded a victory over Otter Valley Dairy by 59-41.

Uplowman, like SSW and Hi Q are just one point behind Flamingos thanks to a win over Howden Hawks

JD Tyres were 64-57 winners over Tip Top Trees.
