Somerset Division 2
Yeovil Aldon 42, Taunton Priory 42

PRIORY looked forward to playing Aldon, having beaten the Yeovil team above them a few weeks ago. 

But this game did not start so well, with Priory losing their first centre pass and forced to play catch-up, with the Yeovil GS particularly accurate. 

Priory stayed in touch, though, and hard work in the centre court and efficient shooting of their own kept them in the game. 

In the final quarter, Priory went ahead a couple of times, but the teams could not be separated at the final whistle.

Somerset Division 3
Sydenham Emeralds 24, Taunton Tudor 42

TUDOR won convincingly away to Sydenham’s Emeralds, thanks to good passing around the court, despite a lot of new faces in the team. 

The shooters found good space in the circle from the off and put Tudor in front at the end of the first quarter. 

Tudor were able to maintain the lead throughout the game, with the shooters converting consistently and the defence making it difficult for Emeralds at the other end. 

It was a good all-round team effort, with interceptions being made in all areas of the court. 

POM: Alice Alger-Green. Squad: GS Alice Alger-Green, GA Tasha Levy, WA Holly Bar, C Louise Frost, WD Ally Gabell, GD Tina Follett, GK Rhonda Robins.

Somerset Division 3
Taunton Brendon 15, Galmington Newbarn 60

IT did not take long for Brendon to realise this was going to be a tough game, as opponents Newbarn quickly took the lead in the first quarter and set the bar high (14-4). 

Despite the hosts’ best efforts defensively, Newbarn continued to increase the gap with excellent transitions and accurate shooting (27-7). 

The third quarter followed suit (45-10), and despite Brendon scoring a few extra goals in the final quarter, there was no chance of catching up.
