It was a close encounter tonight as two Oakley rinks competed for a place in the Area Final of the County Fours. The rink of Marion Bringes, Laura Butler, Jo Holland and Val Ryan began strongly and after 11 ends they led 11-4 against Nicole Rogers, Angie Rowe, Heather Statham and Kay Kerley. By 16 ends, however, Kerley's rink had levelled the scores at 12-12 only for them to drop 4 shots over the next 3 ends. A score of 3 on the penultimate end narrowed the deficit to 1 shot and when Kerley's rink held 4 shots on the last end it looked as they might snatch a victory. It was not to be as Val Ryan's first bowl rubbed off an outside bowl to give her team victory. We wish them well in the Area Final at Alton Social on Monday the 12th June. Support from members for that game would be appreciated as would support for our Men's Senior Fours of Ric Newson, Spencer Kerley, Bob Goodyear and Fred Norris when they compete in the Area Final at Fleet United this Thursday 1st June at 6 pm.
