Southampton (Old) Bowling Green Contributor


It was a hard fought contest for our ladies away to Pirrie Park.  Old Green were only above the away team on shot difference it has to be said at this point in the season.  Although Choi Lin Sanders, Jeni Winney and Barbara Sparling took a couple of ends to even get on the scoreboard they had managed to claw their way back into the game and indeed were 9-9 at the completion of the 12th end. 


However a six conceded on the 14th end,  followed on alternate ends by a four and then a five did nothing for the scoreline and much less for the confidence with the final score being a crushing  defeat of 12-25.  


Next door,  Jan Body, Lin Mills and Jan Bunker were having a similarly difficult day but were at least 8-3 up at the completion of the 7th end.  However,  a single dropped on the next end followed by a three and a five on alternate ends brought the home side right back into the game and our ladies found themselves 9-13 down.  Rallying a little, the ladies gave themselves hope and indeed going into the last end they were 15-14 up.  Holding a pair at the changeover, consolidated by another shot by Jan Bunker, should have given the ladies a precious point.  Unfortunately however, the opposition skip, with her last wood of the game and indeed of the match, stole the shot and SOBG could only pick up a half point for a draw.
