We managed a win yesterday against Bury Lodge in the Middlesex Double Rink. The home team of Sarah, Lucy, Nadine & Jean seemed to be ahead right from the start, unlike Dawn, Ange, Cathy & Ann who just couldn’t quite get it and when we were holding 6, the opposing skip crept in off a side bowl for 2nd! At 3-12 down after 10 ends, we managed to pull together on an almost full length jack to get a 7 and were suddenly 13-13 after 15 ends. After that we moved ahead until something happened on 20th end and we dropped a 5. Oops!
The home team won 24-16 and the away team 23-19. We now play the winners of Rosedale Park and Winchmore Hill – the results aren’t up yet.
Good luck to our team playing Hampton away this afternoon in the South Middlesex League.
Good luck to Tricia, Steve, Jean & Norman who are heading off to Ashford later to play Kerry P and team in the National Mixed Fours.
It’s fresh out there today and about 5C lower than yesterday so you’ll probably need a fleece or jacket especially if you are sitting out with a coffee or watching bowls or both!
