Ladies S&D Triples League


The 4th game of the league season saw our ladies visiting Pirrie Park in Shirley.
Choi-Lin Sanders, Pam Crompton & Jeni Winney eased themselves into the game by picking up 5 shots in three of the first four ends to go 2-5 up.  Unfortunately however, a big score dropped on the 5th end reversed the advantage and with the home side then on the ascendancy our ladies struggled to get back into the match.  Indeed the next end they scored on was the 12th and this was only a single.  The final score of 10-29 was crushing but from there the only way is up!
On the next rink Nola Bayley, Val Morris and Barbara Sparling were also having an intense game but a five accrued on the 4th end gave a welcome breathing space (1-8 to SOBG).  However from there the home side dug in and clawed back to 7-8.  The five achieved on the 4th end by our ladies was then overturned with a five dropped on end 10 and SOBG were thus 12-10 down.   This seemed to inspire our ladies though and they clawed the lead back collecting 10 shots over the next 8 ends and only dropping a two on the 16th end.  Final score was 14-20 to SOBG on this rink, but a loss overall of 13 shots.  
Our next game is home to Follands on 9th June, but remember ladies this is an 11 amstart.
