Smugglers hold the leaders

THE final full week of the North Devon Table Tennis League saw Division 1 champions Torrington A held to a draw by the Smugglers.

Michael Sussex did well to hold on to his treble, but Pete Dunstan sprang a surprise win over Kevin Taylor, who lost for only the second time this season.

It remains tight for the runners up spot between Smugglers and Misfits, who beat Holsworthy A in a game that was worth double points, due to postponement of their game earlier in the season for bad weather.

In Division 2, Untouchable climbed four places after beating Dolphins 7-3, Alan Briggs scoring a hat trick.

Div 1: Holsworthy A 2, Misfits 8 (P Kneil 3); Smugglers 5, Torrington A 5 (M Sussex 3); Castle Knights 5, Commodores 5 (D Gray 3).

Div 2: Untouchables 7, Dolphins 3 (A Briggs 3)
