Ladies Tripels league


It was a welcome return to winning ways for the ladies of the Old Green visiting the tricky green of Eastleigh Railway.
Pam Crompton, Jeni Winney & Barbara Sparling had a see-saw sort of match for the first 7 ends with neither side able to get a real foothold but a three picked up on the 8th end gave the Old Green ladies a little daylight at 9-3.  However, dropping 5 shots in the next two ends saw the gap close again to only a single shot.  A turnover of 5 shots on the next end though saw the Old Green ladies to pick up a 2 and go 11-8 up and that seemed to set the tone for the remainder of the game.  13 shots acquired (including a 5 on the 16th end) over the final 7 ends saw our battling ladies win 22-12.
Next door, Jan  Body, Lin Mills & Jan Bunker were 1-6 down at 4 ends but picked up 7 shots in the next 3 ends to go 8-6 up.  However, having then got in front to the tune of 15-9 at 12 ends, the one thing they didn't want to do was to drop a 5 on the 13th to only be a shot in front again.  But they steadied the ship and scored 7 shots over the remaining 5 ends to win 22-15.  
Final score was Eastleigh Railway 27 shots (0 points)  SOBG  44 shots (4 points)
