VIVARY, sponsored by Shine Hair Management, played top of the table Cornwall’s Saints in Regional League losing 40-62. The match saw very keenly contested play but some brilliant interceptions and defensive pressure by both Vivary and Saints.

Both teams started off strong going goal for goal before Vivary took a slight advantage going up 14-12 at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter saw both sides showing strong passages of play and great defensive work with the quarter ending 27-28 to Saints. Saints piled on the pressure in the third quarter and it was too much for Vivary to compete with. Saints pulled away in this quarter and Vivary headed into the final quarter trailing 33-46. Vivary continued to battle keeping their heads up but couldn’t catch up with their opponents and eventually encountered their first loss of the season.

POM was Emily Tong, OPOM was Lauren Knight. The squad: Emily Tong, Mya Hounsell, Susie Marsh, Faye Symons, Meg Palmer, Lauren Knight, Nicole Smith, Amelia Watson, Freya Bryant, Lauren Wilkinson.

Tone, sponsored by The Kings Arms, played newly promoted Sydenham’s Sapphires in the premier division winning 59-37. Tone had a strong start to the match. Initially it was goal for goal but gradually Tone broke away, finishing the first quarter ahead 16-7. Despite Sapphires’ tight defence, Tone’s centre court delivered some excellent feeds into shooters Fee and Lauren to score, seeing them maintain their lead at half time (33-17). The third quarter lost its flow with WDs from both teams sustaining injuries and despite Tone losing captain, Kim, they continued to build on their lead (46-27). Sapphires’ shooting was accurate throughout the match. Going into the final quarter, Tone were strong defensively throughout the court, putting pressure on Sapphires’ attack and resulting in some great interceptions from Lauren at GD. A well fought match by both teams saw Tone notch up another win.

POM was Lucy Jones, OPOM was Fee Grammer. The squad: GS Fee Grammer, GA Lauren Wilkinson, WA Ruby Porter, C Hannah Robins, WD Kim Tong/Kim Radford, GD Lauren Knight, GK Lucy Jones.

Monmouth, sponsored by Wilkie May & Tuckwood, played Bridgwater’s Saturn in the premier division losing 19-35. Fierce, edgy and cagey could all be used to describe this encounter between Monmouth and Saturn. There was very little to separate the two evenly matched teams in the first two quarters which was separated only by the Bridgwater side’s brave but accurate long range shooting resulting in Saturn leading 10-13 at half time. They came out all guns blazing in the third quarter catching Monmouth on the back foot which forced them to attack more in the final quarter, which inevitably left more space at the back for Saturn to exploit leading to their win.

POM and OPOM was Erin Humphris. The squad: Helen Lucas, Vicki Cornish, Lauren Wilkinson, Kate Durbin, Freya Bryant, Kim Radford, Erin Humphris, Abbey Teape, Amy McGregor, Verity Ward.

Priory, sponsored by Matt Durbin Associates, played Bridgwater’s Venus in the second division winning 44-30. The first quarter began quite evenly, however Priory came out with a lead of 12-9. They extended this in the second quarter to 22-13 with some good interceptions made by the defence. Priory continued to keep the ball seamlessly flowing through the court and some good shooting from Zoe at GS and Sophie at GA increased Priory’s lead further (36-19). Despite Venus winning the final quarter, Priory still managed to take the victory.

POM was Hanna Jarvis. The squad: GS Zoe Stacey, GA Sophie Bond, WA Andrea Dobson, C Sarah Hughes, WD Gugu Mlotshwa, GD Hanna Jarvis, GK Denise Evely.

Tudor, sponsored by Marked Skin, played Yeovil’s Reckleford in the second division losing 37-46. A good start for Tudor to the match, strong defence and good work in the circle to get a small lead. It was a well-balanced game, with fantastic shooting by Reckleford. Tudor suffered a few unfortunate injuries throughout the game but kept up some good teamwork to maintain a small goal difference. POM was Charlotte Owen.

Brendon, sponsored by Bridgwater and Taunton College, played Bridgwater’s Mars in the third division losing 41-50. A tough start to the game for Brendon, with only six players, saw them fall behind by eight goals at the end of the first quarter. Some great defensive work and the addition of a seventh team member saw Brendon manage to maintain the goal difference and stop Mars pulling ahead. Both teams fielded a mix of ages and experience, but the teams gelled together very well with great feeds and working the space to get the ball into the circle.

POMs were Sophia Valmiki and Charlotte Owen, OPOM was Hanna Jarvis.
