Prior to this game Axminster had gone down heavily at Severalls (49-101) with only Alan Brown, Ken Quick, and Ann Clayton (22-20) managing a win.
Away at Lyme Regis the team suffered an 87-59 reversal with the solitary winners being Phil White, John Hill, David Harris, and Frank Bridge (26-11).
There was also an 80-62 defeat at Ottery St. Mary where the single Axminster success came from Mo Brown, John Hill, Mike Preston, and Ann Clayton (18-17).
There was a close affair played out with visiting Chardstock who departed with a three-shot success at 61-58. The Axminster wins came from Pam Clark, Mary Preston, David Harris, and Ken Quick (20-3) and Joan Quick, Muriel Smith, Derek Pheby, and Tony Cable (20-17).
