Sidmouth Toucans suffer second successive defeat
Sidmouth Toucans suffered their second successive defeat in the Honiton and District Summer Netball league, beaten 63-50 by Uplowman.
Toucans were not behind in the contest until the third quarter and much of the reason for their early dominance of the court was down to the performance of goal attach Helen Terry. However, in the final quarter the Mid Devon side got on top to inflict another rare defeat on Toucans.
The League lost a team this week with the withdrawal of Water Babes who have had their fixtures removed from the table and this has affected the teams that have played them or had points allocated because the Babes did not play.
Toucans are one of five teams to be hit by this and that has seen the team drop to sixth in the table.
Flamingos are the current leaders by a single point with four other sides hot on their heels all on the same number of points, 15.
