This week’s North devon Netball League round-up

Carol Anne Trolls showed why they are known as one of the league’s most free-scoring teams by scoring 48 goals against Pat Williams Girls.

They have struggled with injuries and illness but this week saw the return of both shooters and the difference was immediately noticeable. The players linked together with ease and even when Annette Huxtable and Sue Wheaton couldn’t quite find the target they were able to defend up the court and player of the match Beth Miles often turned the ball back over.

Pat Williams looked a little shell-shocked initially as Trolls stormed ahead, but after the first break they kept pace with their opponents.

Blue Oasis’ new recruit Claire Feehan led them to victory against rivals Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks. Woolacombe Bay were a player short and all except the shooters had to move positions but they still made it a good contest with only one goal separating the teams after the first half.

In the third quarter Blue Oasis passed the ball accurately and denied Woolacombe any space, forcing errors and capitalising to win that quarter 14-0. Woolacombe Bay didn’t give up and won the final quarter 9-6 but the damage was done in the third and Blue Oasis came away victorious.

In division two, the Titans teams faced each other with Pluto taking the points. Voyager started well and great movement and shooting by Georgia Morris and Stacey Prosser gave them hope, but Pluto’s Emily Risden was strong in attack and Heloise Johnson was on top form.

Bude Stars maintained their unbeaten record as Rebecca Cuthbertson was once again their most influential player and captain Penny Collis did her job to lead Venners Bakery Anacondas to victory.

Georgeham Rocks started against Carol Anne Quartz missing a player and an injury early on left them with just five players. Quartz capitalised but Georgeham did not let them have it all their own way and made them work for every goal. They now move into third in division three, behind Chivenor Netters and Coodes Cougars after the top two both recorded convincing wins.

The matches in division four continue to be close, as North Devon Homes Stars edged past Carol Anne Opals 33-32 to move into second position. Opals have one game in hand and could retake the position if they finish the first half of the season with a victory.

Gater Girls also crept up the table in defeating Carol Anne Jets, while Venners Bakery Dodging Donuts have moved alongside their clubmates after yet another tight game. Lucy Friend was outstanding in the mid-court, leading them a four-goal win over Carol Anne Amethysts.
