In an away match at Sidmouth, the Honiton ladies’ Over-50s were winners on both rinks in their meeting with Sidmouth Blue, writes Joan Mackintosh.

The final score was 41-31 in favour of the Honiton ladies and they banked six points for their efforts. The rink of Y Williams, T Lambert and D Courtney won with the last shot on the last end to seal a single shot 19-18 victory after a hard match and the rink of L Carless, D Hawkins and H Chambers were 22-13 winners.

A friendly was played away at Bridport and it was a close encounter, one won by Honiton by a margin of just two shots at 83-81. The top rink for Honiton was the one of J Mackintosh, T Richards, Y Williams and G Kille, who won 20-15. There was an East of Exe Mixed League match played away at Ottery St Mary where Honiton won on two of the four rinks, but lost on the other two and the overall match honours went to the home side to the tune of a 66-57 score line.

In the Over-60s League, the Honiton men’s B side entertained Morchard Bishop and managed to collect two points after winning on one rink and losing on one, but they lost the match overall.

The men were also in action in the County Trophy with a match against Madeira that saw two rinks in home action and two away.

Honiton were successful on one of the rinks at home and also one of them away, but lost the match overall to the tune of a 95-65 score line.

However, the men were successful when playing in the Tony Alcock Trophy against Barnstaple, beating the North Devon side 47-23 and their reward is a meeting with Crediton in the next round.

However, in a Top Club meeting with Madeira, the Honiton men suffered a 5-0 defeat.
