Well done to both Jacqui and Karen who won their respective Middlesex Over 55 Singles last night against two experienced opponents from Ashford.
This puts them both into the quarter-finals on Sunday at Ashford. Good luck!
It does mean we’re another two players short for Sunday’s friendly if anyone out there is available to play, please.
Following their exciting matches, the Club Mixed Pairs took place between Ange & Dave and Dawn & Peter T. This was the expected close match. Dave & Ange got off to a good start – the hares- whilst Dawn & Peter took a while to warm up – the tortoises!
once the score reached 11-11 after 11 ends, the pressure was on. The rain held off but it got quite dark as they started the final 2 ends. A slightly unlucky final bowl from Dave on the 17th nudged the jack giving the other pair 3 shots, one more than they had been holding. Dawn & Peter were 2 up going into the final end. It was close with both girls fulfilling their roles as leads. Peter played a couple of crackers, leaving Dave a very difficult shot to get 3 with his final 2 bowls. Alas, it didn’t happen and Dawn & Peter progress to the next round.
