There was a full programme in Division Two of the Honiton Netball League last week, writes Graham Ingram
It was down to earth with a bump for Beer Blazers who, after back-to-back wins before Christmas, suffered a 34-11 defeat at the hands of Blackdown.
With Louise Crabb in good form Blackdown were just too strong for the Blazers for whom Becky Dormer turned in another fine display.
The Blackdown win means that it’s increasingly looking like a three-team race for the title in Division Two.
Sidmouth Toucans held onto their top spot with a comfortable win over Pixies by 31-17.
You may also want to watch:
They took an early lead and hung onto it and their superior goal difference keeps them in the top spot. Eva Cockpayne was the Toucans star whilst Melissa Toluhi had a fine game for the Pixies.
Along with Beer Blazers and Pixies it’s Swaggermamas who are also on 11 points at the foot of the table on goal difference.

They picked up a valuable point when they played Tip Top Trees, whose win kept them level on points with Toucans. 3Ts were 9-7 up at quarter time but with Jo Mitchell playing well the Mamas had come back to 17-17 at halfway.
Jenny Robinson then inspired the young Trees side and they were 29-22 going into the final period and eventually ran out winners by 36-29.
The other match played was the meeting of JD Tyres and Otter Valley. Otter Valley were 4-2 up at the end of the first period, but JD gradually reduced the arrears to be level at 12-12 going into the final session.
With Sam Brunski playing well they had the better of the final quarter, despite good work from Sarah Broom for OV, and the Tyres finished winners by 22-14.
