Budleigh land terrific victory over Chiefs in Exonia League

16:37 25 February 2014

As the Budleigh season draws to a close the clubs record in Division Two of the Exonia League continues to be very good.

This term they have suffered just three defeats, to of them at the hands Budleigh’s most recent opponents, The Chiefs.

Meeting number three saw Budleigh, comprising Don Huish, Leighton Burston, Paul Griffin and Peter Burch, win a thrilling 22-end encounter 25-21.

The latter stages of the Symes, Robinson and Lee Evening League have been reached and the competition has been cranked up a number of levels as teams jostle for a top three finish and a share of the sponsor’s prize money.

The latest round of matches produced an outcome that may yet have a big bearing on the destination of the top honour with mid-table Exonia beating the high-flying Madeira Blues on both rinks and by 39 shots to 22.

The result of the men’s home friendly with Madeira was not decided until the last wood of the final end had been delivered.

After 21 ends, Francis Newton’s Madeirans had won by ten shots and with 20 ends played on the second rink John Dill’s Budleigh side were defending a ten shot lead.

The resulting single end shoot-out went in favour of the hosts to end an enjoyable afternoon’s bowling for all concerned. There is great friendship between the two neighbouring clubs.
