Knowing what you need to do and actually doing it are two different things, writes Julie Grant.

In the ICL before Christmas Honiton’s home rink of men knew that they were level with Torquay United and, on their last end, any score would give them the overall points.

The rink of Wally Heard, Roger Binmore, Ian Veitch and skip Steve Dommett pulled it out of the hat by scoring one and so victory went to Honiton!

In the ICL after Christmas the men suffered a defeat to Torbay. There were mixed fortunes in the mixed friendlies too.

There was a pre-festive break 73-50 win against Dunkeswell, 73-50, with the top rink being David Tooley, Harry Riley, Judith Broom and Di Morley (28-9) before an early new year 68-39 reversal away at Exonia.

The ladies had success in their first match in the county Top Club with an emphatic win against Budleigh in a contest that saw all five events victorious.
