Despite the heavy rain during the week a number of games in the Joma Devon Women's Football survived and provided a lot of goals.

Shaldon Villa won their third game in a row at home to near neighbours, Plainmoor Ladies. On a wet and muddy pitch beside the river Teign, they recorded an impressive 6 - 1 win with clinical finishing from Roisin Skilton with a hat trick, two from Millie Cox and a scorcher from Maria Cox. The visitors equalised through Kerry Stapleton, with her second goal in successive weeks, following Shaldon's opener, but were unable to contain the home side.

Activate kept up their 100 per cent start to the season, romping to a 10-0 home win against Halwill FC. Stacey Tonkins and Wensdy Wise notched four goals each and Caleigh Boyce and Steph Warren added one apiece. Paula Morgan, Activate secretary, was quick to congratulate for their guests for their attitude and commitment as they travelled and played with only nine players. 

Signal Box Oak Villa made the short journey across Plymouth to play the University students and returned home with all three points from a 4 - 1 win to keep the pressure on the top two teams.

In the Eastern Division, Bradninch clocked up their second consecutive three points as they squeezed home 4 - 3  against the visiting team from the University of Exeter. Sara Barada grabbed two goals, with Sophie Bamforth and Harriot Taylor scoring one each. Amelia Young also scored twice and Catrin Platt, but it was not quite enough for the students.
