TWO visiting teams provided enjoyable bowling and good results for Budleigh, writes Pat Pearson.

Oxford Masonics lost on all three rinks with Dawn Graham's team of Pat Harvey, Bobbie Vanstone and Marilyn Jackson winning 31-9, closely followed by skip Ann Cottles, Pat Pearson, Lilian Grainger and Buntie Hudson, who ended 31-10 and Rita de Selincourt, Elizabeth Cole, Jane Hincks with Joan Shaw skipping 18-13.

Against Cobham, Graham (skip), de Selincourt, Vanstone and Jean Watts led the whole game to finish 19-12 with Pearson, Janice Brace, Jackson and Maggie Dance (skip) from being 9-4 up at 10 ends finding it really does all change after tea, as their opponents pulled back to win 17-15 to play their part in what was a 34-29 win for the home team.

In an over 50s league game away at Topsham, Budleigh gained 2 points with Dance (skip), Pearson and Watts, from being level with 10 shots at 14 ends, scoring 10 more in the last 4 ends to win 20-11.

On the other rink Margaret Ratcliffe, Jackson and Graham (skip) were unable to recover from losing two 4s early in the game and lost 10-21.

When Captain Buntie Hudson took a rink to compete for the Perham Trophy at Seaton, she, with Yvonne Smith, Margaret Butler and Ann Cottle (skip), had a most enjoyable day, ending as runners-up with an excellent tea to follow.

The Ladies' Championship will be played ahead of Finals Day, to fit in with the County's Champion of Champions arrangements.

Maggie Dance and Celia Mangeng will do battle in what is expected to be a superb match, well worth watching.

Other finals will be Dance versus Teresa Rivers in the 2 wood, Butler versus Smith in the Otter Cup, Lilian Grainger and Mangeng against de Selincourt and Cottle in the Ladies' pairs.

The other club competitions are still at the semi-final stage.
