Honours ended even when Honiton ladies met Plymouth in their latest Lane League county competition fixture, writes Joan Mackintosh.

In what was a close contest from first wood to last, the final score was one of 74-all and so both teams bank five points for their considerable efforts.

However, in the Foxlands County meeting with the ladies of Madeira it was the Exmouth team who won the match, claiming a 90 shots to 58 success. That left Madeira taking eight points and Honiton two.

The top Honiton rink proved to be the one of B Maynard, A Hillier, M Vessy and D Morley, who won 19-17.

The ladies were also in action when they met a strong Torquay United side in the county-wide Top Club competition.

There were also a couple of mixed friendlies played during the past week. The first was against Nomads and this resulted in a Honiton win by 80 shots to 75. The top rink was the one of J Broom, D Hawkins, B Mackintosh and G Osborne, who won 26-21.
