There was more County success for Ottery last week, writes Michael Smith.

It came when the triples team of John Mabbott, Mollie Parker and skip Terry House won the section final against a team from Honiton.

What made the success all the more impressive was that, at one stage, the Ottery triple were 17-3 down! However, they staged a terrific fightback to eventually win 18-17!

Special mention must be made of Mollie Parker who at long last has achieved her County Badge.

The team move into the final 16 in the county-wide competition, well done team and especially well done, Mollie.
