Good and bad news from the past week at Phear Park, writes David Evans.
The week started up with the annual visit of the Freemasons - always a pleasant occasion - and it ended in a rousing win for the Park by 76-54 with the best home triple being the one of John Horne, Fay Downend and Rod Davidson 29-8.
Topsham paid us a return visit and we reversed the recent away defeat, winning easily, 84-54, being helped by a good win of 26-8 by Peter Burch, Margo Allen, and again, Rod Davidson.
There was also good and bad news in the Over-60s League which is now almost at the end of its latest season.
Phear Park A badly needing the points, were not confident in visiting Axminster on the difficult all-weather green, but due to a very good win of 15 shots by Burch, Robbins, and Smith, they came away with six points which ensures survival in Division Four.
I am afraid that the B team were comfortably beaten in their home meeting with Ottery St Mary.
It will be very difficult for the B team to avoid relegation which is sad because they commenced the season with great confidence and they must have a perfect result in the last game this week to give them any chance of staying up.
