Last Sunday saw the second round matches of the Devon Petanque League and Ottery St Mary travelled to Chudleigh where the team made a great start by winning the opening Triples games quite handsomely, writes Dave West.
However, playing on their brand new piste that had only been finished that week, Chudleigh made a real comeback by taking the three doubles to claim a 3-2 victory!
The Otters did not succumb easily and lost two of the games by only two and three points respectively.
Full results: Triples; John and Rose Thatcher and Derek Hansen 13, Franck Depreaux, Mike Moyse, Rob Thomas 0; Peter and Sue Smith and Barrie Hall 13, Thierry Hacq, Henry Pickett, John Baxter 2; Pairs; John Thatcher and Sue Smith 11, Franck Depreaux and Julian Surtees 13; Rose Thatcher and Derek Hansen 10, John Baxter and Rob Thomas 13; Pete Smith and Barrie Hall 4, Thierry Hacq and Henry Pickett 13.
Match result: Three wins to Chudleigh and two to Ottery St Mary.
