Ladies Trles League


Herewith the final match report of the ladies' triples season.
Home to Friary.
Nola Bayley, Val Morris & Barbara Sparling took a couple of ends to get started but a welcome 6 on the 4th end set the pattern for the next few ends, and made the score 6-4.  15 shots were added to the home side's score over the next 7 ends and the scoreboard read a pleasing 21-4 up. Dropping a six on the 12th end wasn't quite in the script and brought the Friary ladies back into the frame a little.   Singles exchanged over the next two ends steadied the ship for the home side, and they could live with two further singles dropped, particularly as the penultimate and final ends both netted two for Old Green to make the score-line 26-13.
Meanwhile, Choi-Lin Sanders, Lin Mills & Jan Bunker were having a seemingly tougher time of it but were 8-4 up at eight ends.  Unfortunately then ensued a rocky period where the home side were decidedly on the back foot dropping 7 shots in 4 ends with only a single shot added.  A flash of brilliance on the fourteenth end saw them pick up a four which got them back into the lead again (13-11).  However it was a false dawn as two two's and a single dropped on the next three ends gave them a bit of a hill to climb for the final end as they were now three down.  Jan was unlucky not to be able to tip out the single opposition wood which was saving three and the ladies only managed to pick up a single shot to finish 14-16 down.
The final result was 40 shots (3 points) to SOBG and 29 shots (1 point) to Friary.  This is the first home win of the season!
The good news is that SOBG finish in 3rd place as although the 4th placed team (Atherley)
still have a game to play, they cannot catch us, as they are still on 19 points and SOBG are on 25.
Well done ladies during a sometimes quite difficult season.
