This week’s North Devon netball league round-up
North Devon’s netballers have returned to the courts for the new season and new teams are stepping up to the challenge.
Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks and Frank Heard’s Heffers scored heavily in their first division one matches with their defenders Corinna White and Mary Foster keeping their opposition out of the game.
In division two Carol Anne Quartz just edged past their club-mates Golds following a match that was close throughout. Sarah Steggles led Instant Images Embroidery to a narrow victory over Reeds Silverside despite the best efforts of Steph Batstone.
Chivenor Netters started the league with an impressive performance defeating Langtree Re-Unites Raiders in a very tight match. Raiders took the early lead which, although small, they maintained to half-time.
In the third quarter Chivenor turned the tables with great defence by Elenoa Koroibanuve to take a one goal advantage into the final fifteen minutes. Raiders’ player of the match Chloe Burrows-Bryan was unable to continue following an injury but Maddie New proved they had depth in their squad slotting in and netting goals but Chivenor would not relinquish their lead and won the match 30-28.
North Devon Homes Stars and Gater Girls each won their matches by just four goals. Stars defeated one of Venners new teams: Jumping Japs, and Gaters beat some of Carol Anne’s youngsters: Opals.
North Devon Homes showed they will be a strong force in division three as they scored 46 goals with Sarah Storey making the difference in the mid-court, although Carol Anne Jets’ Jess Heyland did her best to make it difficult.
