Connaught had not played at Horsford BC so to get a win was very pleasing.
The first session was shared, Owen's triple losing 3 on the first end then hit back with a 2,4 and 1 a 2 against on the next end 7-5 up, scoring 3 on the 6th end put them further in the lead but a dropped 4 on the penultimate end gave Horsford hope10-9 some excellent woods by all 3 players throughout the game and on the last end took a 3. Joe's triple did struggle with the line and weight as mat 2 has a notorious swing on the far side but did well to contain the shots
Second session saw the pairs take control with Mike and Sheila romping to 1 big win, Jack and Lee had a tighter game with Jack eventually finding line and length and Lee bowling excellently.
Third session saw the triples back in action Joe's triple having a tighter game than the first 5-5 with an end to play took 5 on the last end. Owen's triple again dominated the match, some excellent lead bowls by Di and Derek at two, leaving Owen to consolidate.
Last session back came the pairs this time knowing that the match was won, Jack and Lee shared the ends 4 each and Mike and Sheila 4-5 down and dropped a 3 on the last.
Well played everyone, Thanks to Horsford for the refreshments
