Winter League report 11th March
Another home game on another sunny day but the opposition was tougher than last week. We were ahead on 3 rinks after 10 ends and the prospects were looking good. But ,unlike last week when we finished strongly, this time we weren’t quite as good.
On rink 2 Dudley’s team had a steady start and playing well to get to 13-10 after 15 ends. They lost the last three ends to loose 13-17.Not much between the two sides really.
Bob Cockell’s team had a change from last week because Barbara Flynn fell ill just before the game. Rebecca stepping into the breach. In the first half of the game they scored one point but got a 5 on end 10. They tried hard to keep in contention but could not produce another big score and went down 10-20.
On rink four Clive’s team had a well contested first half and were 10-8 after ten ends. They managed to keep their noses in front , winning six of the last eight ends. 19- 15 was our only win of the day. It was a team effort all the way.
On rink five Derek’s team started well and were 10-7 at halfway. Bonalba then got the pace of the rink and won six of the last 9 ends to earn a draw 17-17. There was some good bowling from both teams.
On rink six Mary’s team recovered from loosing five shots on the first two ends and were just 8-11 after ten ends and 11-11 after eleven. The opposition fought back to win five of the last seven ends and take the game 13-16.Another very close encounter.
So it was a hard earned 3 points for us and 9 for Bonalba. Shot difference was 72-85. Next week we travel to Vistabella but no Berleen again.
