Budleigh bowlers secure comfortable success over Country Boys in Exonia Evening League match

PUBLISHED: 09:08 14 November 2013

Budleigh were comfortable winners in their latest Exonia Evening League outing.

They were 29-14 victors against the aptly-named ‘Country Boys’, whose members journey from as far afield as North Tawton and Crediton!

Leighton Burston, Don Huish, Paul Griffin and Peter Burch were in good form and, having taken an early lead, were able to stifle a late challenge before cruising to a comfortable victory.

The Symes, Robinson and Lee Evening League once again produced another very close match with the outcome undecided until the final end was played!

The contest was between two Budleigh teams with the Buzzards and falcons going head to head.

The match finished fittingly with one rink win each, but there was an outright winner with Falcons prevailing by a margin of just two shots.

David Tomlinson, Alan Pearson and Allan Cottle gained two points for the Buzzards with their score of 20-15 and the Falcons netted four points from the efforts of Don Huish, Burges Stace and Terry Kelly who landed a 17-10 success.

The Madeira Reds have been active twice in the past week, both outings in the same league competition. As a result of back to back success they appear to strong claims to end the season close to, or on top of, the table.

A comprehensive win over Sidmouth earned maximum points and their shot-difference statistic received a massive boost from Bob Finch’s trio, who ran amok and won 36-8.

Next, the Budleigh Falcons provided stiffer opposition but the Reds took five of the six points on offer with a 43-34 victory.

Terry Kelly’s Falcons salvaged a single point from the encounter with a late recovery which secured a 17-17 draw on the final end.
