THE FATHER and son Taylor team from Torrington A remain on course to complete the North Devon League season unbeaten.

Dad Kevin and his boy Ben had maximums again as Torrington beat under-strength Holsworthy A.

It was a 12th win out of 12 for Torrington at the top of the first division.

Holsworthy, third from bottom, must keep an eye on Castle Knights and Balls of Fury who are both scoring points.

The bottom two met in a close game, with six of the sets going to the distance.

Wim Faassen secured the win with a treble for Fury, for whom Marcus Berry, newly arrived from Bristol, made his debut and won a useful two points.

There was nothing between Misfits and Smugglers who are battling for the runners-up spot and drew 5-5.

Mathew Thomas's treble was countered by a good team performance from Misfits.

Top played bottom in the second division with Hopefuls running out easy 9-1 winners over Torrington B and regaining first place from Hartland.

Hartland's recent run of form was halted by a 5-5 draw with Herons.

Alan Briggs won all three but it was not enough to stop Herons being held to a draw for the fourth time in this campaign.

Rod Thomas scored his first triple in four seasons as Mad Batters won 7-3 against Littleham.

Holsworthy B were a player short and Dolphins took advantage, winning 7-3, although Gerard O'Boyle scored two for Holsworthy in only his second game of the season.
