The last weekend of the indoor bowling season finished with an exciting match between Honiton and Exonia in the final of the Devon County indoor men’s triples, writes Joan Mackintosh.

Honiton lost out to Exonia 21-20 after an extra end with the score tied at 20-20. After a good start from Honiton, Exonia took 20 -14 lead with four ends to play, but Honiton didn't give up and won the last four ends to force an extra end to decide the game.

However, Ian Veitch, Steve Coles, and Garry Osborne couldn't get the last bowl in to win the game in a extremely good final.
