The latest action in the Honiton Netball League saw the focus on Division Two, with a full set of fixtures played, writes Graham Ingram.

The game of the evening saw second placed Tip Top Trees up against third placed Blackdown.

With Nicky Perry in great form it was Blackdown who started the stronger and, by halfway they were 12-8 in front.

The third period saw 3Ts mount a comeback and so going into the final quarter Blackdown held a slender 16-15 advantage. Megan Good inspired the Trees to new heights in the final session however, and it was 3Ts who triumphed with a single goal win at 21-20.

Top team Sidmouth Toucans held onto the first spot on goal difference thanks to their convincing victory over Swaggermamas by 29-7.
