- Credit: Archant
The last week was certainly an eventful one for Feniton, writes Roger Smith.
The mixed team defeated Hemyock 69-63 with the winning rinks being R Cooke, L Ley, D Phillips and A Kury (23-12), G Blackmore, G Phillips, P Goodwin and K Lovering (19-16) and D Downs, D Sanders, J Smith and A Evans (12-11).
This result, and the fact that Culm Vale conceded their match against Feniton, meant that Feniton finished as runners-up behind Seaton in the East of Exe Mixed Triples League.
In the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League, Feniton A secured a crucial away win at top-of-the-table Madeira B, beating the Exmouth side 35-29. The winning rink was J Livings, A Smith and R Smith (21-11).
However, in a rearranged match away at Starcross they lost narrowly by 29-30. The winning rink was E Cox, D Sanders and J Skinner (15-13).This means that the promotion places will be decided on the last matches of the season, with the A team currently in third place. The B team lost away to Madeira E, beaten 35-28. The winning rink was C Maynard, L Ley and R Clarke (18-8).

The mixed team lost on all rinks in a 77-60 reversal at Bovey Tracy. They did though redeem themselves by winning on all rinks against tourists Old Grammarians and overall by 93 shots to 55.
