Having said that, it was not too friendly for Honiton won on two of the three rinks and took the overall honours with a score of 52-37.

Winning their rink by a single shot were Carol Podmore, Paddy Chew and skip Zena Johnson, 14-13. There's was certainly a close encounter as they went into the final end locked at 13-all before managing to bag the shot to claim the narrowest of victories. Well done, to them.
