Ottery St Mary had a profitable time on the green last week, writes Michael Smith.
In the County Trophy competition against Honiton, Ottery faired better on the away rinks, winning on one and drawing the other, but the home rinks saw losses on both rinks, the winning rink was skipped by Mike Smith with Chris Hawke, Brian Light and George Kille 24-20. This all left Honiton winning the match by eight shots.
The Ottery A team continued their good run in the Men’s Over-60s League, gaining maximum points away to Marina B, with Dave Rose, Peter Jones and skip Mike Smith winning 28-5.
After their good win the previous week the B team slipped up at Phear Park losing on both rinks, but the C team continue to pick up points, although losing overall at home to Seaton C, Richard Chapple, Ken Dennis and skip Ray Luscombe won 16-13, and so bagged another two points.
Elsewhere Ottery made their exit from the Foxlands, losing in the quarter finals to Feniton on both rinks. The ladies had another good win in the LOFTL, coming home by eight shots against Seaton Red with Carol Keating, Sharon Kenny and skip Mollie Parker winning 20-7, then just to prove it wasn’t a fluke, they gained maximum points away to Starcross by 14 shots with Dot Luff, Mollie Parker and skip Gail Hawke winning 22-10.
