With handicaps ranging from three to nine, Sidmouth fielded a stronger team than Budleigh who had a team with handicaps six to 11.
When seven games had been completed Budleigh led 5-2 and by lunchtime the score had become 9-3.
Of the final eight matches Sidmouth won five and Budleigh three which left Sidmouth winning overall to the tune of a 14-6 score line.
Though everyone on the team won at least two games, Philip Harris and Paul Bradley excelled by winning all four that they played and John Maynard won three and drew one in his four.
Sidmouth SW has played well this year, winning four matches, drawing one match and losing just one.
However, this was not enough to win the section and progress to the next round.
The team to go through, East Dorset, had five wins and one loss, Sidmouth beating them in the very first game of the season back in May!
