Axe Cliff ladies entertained Tiverton ladies in a Devon League encounter at a sun-kissed home course, writes Pete Motson.

It was the host team that took the honours, winning four of the games with one halved and one being claimed by the visitors.

The score, in terms of the points at the end of the match, stood at nine to Axe Cliff and four-and-a-half to Tiverton. There was further joy for the home team as they also won the reserve game played between the two clubs.

Axe Cliff ladies then entertained Bigbury ladies in a Friday encounter. When the team met at Bigbury it was the Axe Cliff ladies who received shots, but, this time round, all home players gave shots ranging from five to 10 which made it all a mighty big ask for the home team!

The weather was cool and the wind blew up. It was also quite damp but, it just stayed fine enough for Axe Cliff to get a good win. Victorious five and beaten in just one the final points score was Axe Cliff 10, Bigbury 3. Another good week for Axe Cliff ladies
