Five of Honiton's ladies progressed to the Devon County Finals held at Plymouth's new Indoor Bowling green, writes Roger Binmore.
Rosemary Hirons, Anne Hillyear and Pearl Hackwood were competing in the three-wood triples against a team from Plymouth.
They got off to a slow start, but gradually fought their way back to level at 12 shots all. Unfortunately their opponent’s local knowledge came to the fore and they came out winners by 17 shots to 13.
Yvonne Rayner and Carole Binmore teamed up in the four-wood pairs against another duo from Plymouth.
This time the Honiton pair were able to keep the game close early on before eventually pulling away to end worthy winners at 18 shots to 9.
Such was the travelling support that the Honiton followers outnumbered the home support by three-to-one!
