Ottery St Mary Petanque Club were 3-2 winners with a points difference of plus 16 when they hosted Isca in their latest match, writes Dave West.

The opening triples were shared, with Dave West, Derek Hansen and Paul Puddicombe 13-8 winners, but John and Rose Thatcher , together with Sue Smith, were edged out 13-11.

In the doubles, Dave West paired up with Derek Hansen for a nip-and-tuck meeting them lead three times and pegged back level three times before they took control to run out handsome 13-3 winners.

John and Rose Thatcher were also 13-3 winners, but the pairing of Sue Smith and Paul Puddicombe, went down 13-6.

The final outcome of a plus 16 points difference may yet prove crucial I terms of the final placings this season.
