Ark Angels' 46-26 victory over South Devon College was marred by concern for the 'mother hen' of the team Jean Mayes who was involved in a very nasty collision with team mate Carly Gibbs.

SDC walked away with a much deserved point and the Angels walked away with another win but hoping their best player won't be missing with injury next time out.
