"It was a good day at the office for the ladies playing their 3rd match of the season, this week away to Eastleigh Railway. 


 Jan Body/Lin Mills &Jan Bunker could have done without dropping a 5 on the first end, but it must be said this was due to a weighted opposition wood.  However they recovered and dug in well being only 12-7 down at 10 ends.,  From there, though they rallied and picked up 19 shots in 7 of the remaining 8 ends including scores of a 4 and a 6.   They finished 15-26 up.


On the next rink, Choi-Lin Sanders, Pam Crompton & Barbara Sparling were experiencing a frustrating game but at 7 ends they were nevertheless 2-7 up.  Dropping a five on the next end however, was not in the plan as it allowed the Railway team back into the match.  Indeed the balance of the game of the game swung back and forth - but mostly toward the hosts.  However, a score of 2 acquired on end 15 stemmed the flow and brought the score to 12-11.  This was then followed by a 4 (which put SOBG 12-15 up) and on the penultimate end by a 3 and took the pressure off slightly.  A single on the final end brought a welcome win of 12-19, on the rink, and an overall winning score of 27-45.  4 points in the bag.  


Well done ladies."
