In the Ladies Division, first blood goes to Newton Abbot Pacers as they beat Plymouth Raiders by 10 points and therefore remain undefeated.

Biggest mention of the week though to Rob Williams who refereed the two matches at Middlemoor on Friday night and pledged 10p per point scored in both matches to BBC Children in Need and asked the players to match their points contribution with 10p per point. 
Total Points in both games 259, pledge of £25.90 from Rob and with the pledges from players rounded up to £52 - great pledge by Rob supported by teams - well done

Oct 17, 2016, 6:57 am


Tiverton Titans 44 – Broadclyst 73


In their first home game of the season Tiverton faced off against top of the league team Broadclyst.

The first period saw both teams come out strong. Both teams scored consistently but Tiverton came out on top 18 – 15.

Second period saw Broadclyst take charge finishing in the lead 24 – 33.

Broadclyst were now showing their experience by running a tight defence and great offensive plays. The next two periods Tiverton fought hard and played their hearts out but it wasn’t enough. Experience proved to be too much and Broadclystwon the game 44 – 73.

Tiverton’s top 3 scorers – Adam Halsey 9, Rob Taylor-Southall 11, Shane Barrell 12 (MVP)

Pacers accomplish 2nd victory against Exe Uni
Oct 14, 2016, 5:12 pm






Just two days after a good win over the Exeter University first team, Pacers now faced the University’s second team; the expectation was, therefore, for another positive result. Pacers were looking for a more fluent start than their previous two games of the season, against what was going to be very energetic opposition.  Thankfully the home squad did not disappoint as good transitional play and strong close to basket work enabled Pacers to be 22 - 4 ahead at the end of the first quarter.  

In the second period Pacers continued to move the ball with pace and drove strongly to basket amassing a further 20 points to their score.  At the other end of the court a change in defensive formation saw Pacers looking much more compact as a unit. However the University girls moved the ball effectively around the ring and, together with some fine perimeter shots, they more than doubled their score to be11 - 42 behind at the second break.

In the third period Pacers remained a very tight defensive unit and in this third ten minutes of play they conceded only the one basket.  In attack Pacers slowed up their movements and set up each offensive play.  This also proved to be a fruitful way to play as, by the end of the third quarter Pacers were now 65 – 13 ahead.  

During the last period of play the University players adapted their offence and started to penetrate the home defence and move their score along.  This prompted a change to the Pacers defensive style and the points flow ceased.  In attack Pacers were failing to pick out the appropriate pass to movement off the ball and shooting opportunities were, for once, hard to come by.  As a result the rate of scoring slowed for a while.  Once the speed of ball movement up court picked up during the final minutes of the game Pacers pushed ahead with their scoring to come out 85 -19 ahead at the final whistle.  

Coach Andy Sinden said ‘This was another good performance by Pacers, showing that they are at ease playing in various defensive formations and can score from a wide range of situations’.

Pacers Continue Undefeated Start to 2016/17
Oct 11, 2016, 6:28 am





In the past, away games at Exeter University have been veryintense, fast paced affairs. With this possibly on their minds,Pacers were unusually out of sorts at the start of this game where the defence was almost non-existent and there was no shape to their offensive play!   As a result, up to the midway point of the first period, Exeter University were six points ahead with the visitors having yet to register a single point.  Pacers then seemed to have overcome their shaky start by managing to draw level in the game, all within a minute of play!  However it was a false dawn as Exeter University finished the period 11-8 ahead.  

Despite the poor performance in the first ten minutes, at least Pacers had a foothold into the game and with something to work from.  A change in defensive formation for the second period made Pacers far more difficult outfit to break down, so much so that within the first six minutes of this period Exeter University had only scored once.  At the other end of the court Pacers offensive play was beginning to show some pattern of movement and the points started to flow.  Consequently by half-time Pacers were ahead 27-19 and they were now in control of the game.

The start of the second half saw Pacers remain resolute in defence whilst in offence their excellent ball movement generated numerous scoring opportunities. With accurate finishing Pacers managed to extend their lead to 20 points with the score at 43-23.  Then Pacers went through a phase of careless shooting and the momentum was lost.  As a result, in the last three minutes of this third period, the University girls made a little bit of a comeback to be 48-32 behind at the third break.  

In the final period of the game Pacers just needed to stay relaxed in possession of the ball, with no need to force any passes or shots, in order to come away with a comfortable win.  For most of the period Pacers played with this assured style so that, with a couple of minutes of play to go, the lead had been extended to 24 points at 61-37.  Again there was an end of period rally by the home team so that at the final whistle the result was 61-43.

Whilst the score appears to indicate a very comfortable win for Pacers, the players came off court feeling that the game had been a close battle throughout and that there had been nothing comfortable about it at all!  However, this result means Pacers have won both of their opening fixtures of the season and are now looking to extend the unbeaten run further.

Devon Peelers and Broadclyst Meet Again
Oct 5, 2016, 6:21 pm

Devon Peelers and Broadclyst met for the second time in 3 weeks, unfortunatley for Peelers the result was the same!

The first quarter was all square with Broadclyst pipping it 15 - 16, the second quarter was however a completely different 'kettle of fish', despite Broadclyst being in foul trouble from the 4th minute from their more aggressive defence Peelers were unable to take advantage, and Broadclyst pulled out the lead to 15 points - 22 - 37.

A decent come back in the final two quarters where Peelers won both did not gain them a win, the final score was 61 - 77.


Marc Grim was MVP for Broadclyst in a good come back game for him, shooting from outside, inside and great distribution - John Ellis was MVP for Peelers.
