Good News and Not So Good News

First, the not so good news….

The girls made their way over to North London BC (again) on Friday night for the Middlesex Area Final of the National Top Club.
Dawn lost the singles by 10

Tina & Ann won the Pairs by 10

Karen, Marie, Nadine & Cathy won the Fours by 7

Sarah, Ange & Jean were 7 down after the 17th  end. So, it all came down to the last end on the Triples rink. No pressure!
Ange managed to secure shot but the NL no.2 drew a better one. And it stayed there until all 18 bowls were played.
Result: We lost by 1. Oh drat!

Our Men’s Senior Fours won last night v Masonians.
Ann, Cathy & Nadine and Tina, Ange & Dawn both won their triples. The latter scraping a very small win over Jacquie E, Janice & Marie. Alas Sarah, Karen & Lucy didn’t make it through.
Sarah & Lucy had a good win v Jean & Ange win in the Senior Pairs this afternoon which should have given them a warm up for tomorrow when they play in the quarterfinals (and hopefully semifinals) of the County Ladies Pairs tomorrow   Good luck!

In the County Two Bowl singles last 16 today, we had three players representing the club. Alas Ann fell to Dot Stanners of Staines but Jacqui L came through on the extra end v Jackie from Grovelands but lost in the quarterfinals to Joyce W from Hayes  (We were playing at Hayes)

Dawn beat Isobel from Bishop Duppas in last 16, scraped through by 1 shot v Marion from Bury Lodge in the quarterfinals then managed a win in the semi v Joyce W from Hayes  Dawn now faces  Hannah from Bush Hill Park in the final at Cambridge Park on 16th July

Hannah had a very tight semifinal v Meagan from West Ealing . The standard of play was excellent

Jacqui lost her Unbadged Singles to Wendy from Staines and Karen beat Anna from Ashford in the Main Singles and faces Cathy.  Jean secured a 28- end 21-20 win over Tina. What a long match!

Upcoming matches this week include County Men’s Pairs for Dave 0 & Andy v Paul & Jay from West Ealing on Monday night; Ladies Senior Fours with both Ann & Jean’s teams playing on Tuesday, National Senior Singles between Tina & Dawn on Wednesday plus Cathy in the County Singles ; and Ann & Dawn’s triples both play on Thursday

All in all we’re all playing lots!

    Thanks for the report Dawn – bad luck, losing by one shot at NLBC – again!

    Don’t forget Dave P also won his Senior 4s against Ashford.

    Congratulations to all the winners – and commiserations to the runners-up. It’s great to see so much going on, there’s a real buzz about the place.
