Southampton (Old) Bowling Green Contributor


On Thursday 3rd August, the ladies travelled to Bishops Waltham to play a Meon Valley side hovering in the table just above the Old Green.  Sheelagh Glossop, Pam Crompton and Jeni Winney tried to keep the game competitive but the opposition knew every wrinkle of their green and out-thought the away side at nearly every turn.  The ladies only won 5 out of the available 18 ends and dropping a six halfway through the game had not helped their cause.  The 11-26 defeat was disappointing but not crushing however.  Next door, Jan Body, Lin Mills and Jan Bunker were having a see-saw battle with their opposition, and indeed were 6-9 down going into the 10th end so picking up a close five saw them spring into the lead.  A lead they kept until the finish, trading shots along the way.  They ended 17-15 up which gave the ladies a valuable point, and away from home this was a good result. The score was a defeat of 28 shots to 41.
