Ladies triples team


After the winning high of beating Atherley ladies away, it was very frustrating to lose the second home match of the season on 26th May to table topping Meon Valley.

Choi-Lin Sanders, Jeni Winney & Barbara Sparling could never quite get the upper hand in their match against a strong Meon Valley triple and indeed by the 4th end they were 1-8.  Recovering slightly over the next few ends, the home side had clawed back the score to be only 7-9 down at 10 ends.  However, despite some shot saving skills the game slipped away again and finished 10-18.  

Jan Body, Lin Mills & Jan Bunker on the other hand sped into a positive 6-1 scoreline at 5 ends, but then dropped 7 shots over the next 4 ends to go behind 6-8.  The 10th end saw a single picked up by our ladies, followed by a welcome 5 on the 11th end.  However the see-saw match tipped back and forth and by the 14th end they were behind again 12-13.  A score of 4 gained on the 15th end put them back in front by three shots, but they were level on 16 all going into the last end.  A welcome 2 on this end gave the home side a victory of 18-16 and 1 precious point could be added to Old Green's league tally.  Well done ladies.

The next game is away to Pirrie Park.
