Gloucestershire Two Rink (2): Redland v Page Park (A) 11/07/22

Lost 45 – 43

A cracking effort against Page Park’s A team, in fact a rink of 4 of their best players stood down from the next round of the Glos 4s which they had qualified for in order to play, fair play to those guys putting club in front of personal (we didn’t have that option, as most of our Glos 4 guys had played in the A team on Saturday.)

On Dave Edward’s rink with Dave Sunter, Jon Emerson and Roger Plant, were nip and tuck for the first 13 ends but their opponents and arguably the Page Park top rink started to put on the pressure, at 20-10 down it looked as though the game might get away, but we kept it tight and finished 13-24 down.

Meanwhile on Mike’s rink with Phil, Alan and Marek they were always in front and started pulling away, to be 20-9 up and with Dave’s rink finishing first, we went into the last end all square, we needed a dapper* but this was not to be and we dropped a 2 to be 2 behind and losing the game overall.

Disappointing result in the end, but our guys can be very pleased with the way they played and made Page work hard for their win.

* Definition – dapper- a wood right on the jack on the last 2 ends
