Chardstock teams endured some close encounters in their latest outings in the Exeter and District men's Over-60s League matches, writes Vaughan Fletcher.
The A team travelled to Phear Park, a team one place below us in the league.
In what was always going to be a tight match, at the halfway stage, the home side held a five shot advantage.
However, Chardstock rallied to lead by one shot after the penultimate end, a lead they held on to in a tense finish to take the match.
The B team were also involved in a close finish. Losing by three shots with one end to play they won each of the final ends to draw their match at Division Seven runaway leaders Wellington which does represent a fantastic result.
