Ladies Triples League


Match report on the game between SOBG and Atherley.  7th July 2016
Choi-Lin Sanders, Nola Bayley & Jeni Winney set off at a good pace in their match against Atherley Ladies, and were 11-0 up at 5 ends.  However the away side began to get accustomed to the green and pulled back slowly over the next 10 ends to be only 2 shots behind at 14-12.  A welcome 4 on end 16 for our ladies though put daylight between to the two teams again, and despite dropping 3 on the final two ends the home side held on for a win of 18-15.  
Next door, Jan Body, Val Morris & Jan Bunker were having a more see-saw game and at 9 ends they were 8-9 down.   However the away side definitely had the bit between their teeth and our ladies were always chasing the game.  Dropping a three on the last end with the opposing skip taking out our nearest wood, to make the score 14-18 just tipped the overall balance of the match and the battling Old Green ladies lost by a single shot
Final score was SOBG 32 shots to Atherley 33 shots
