Holsworthy take Hartland record

Joseph Bulmer

TORRINGTON A maintained their lead in Division 1 of the North Devon Table Tennis League with a whitewash over Holsworthy A for their sixth win in six.

Nearest rivals Smugglers also won 10-0 against Castle Knights.

Division 2 games were much tighter affairs, with three games ending 6-4 and the other a draw.

Holsworthy B put paid to Hartland’s unbeaten record in Division 2, Doug Genini scoring a good brace to clinch the victory, despite Malcolm Overson remaining unbeaten for Hartland.

Dolphins beat old foes Littleham with Dave Andrews not dropping a single game. Bandits’ Ben Crompton scored his first triple of the year and John Trew his first league win, but it was not enough against Hopefuls, who batted strongly throughout their order.

Herons remain top of the division and are now the only unbeaten Division 2 side in with five wins out of five.
