Match Report: NE League Division 2 20/06/24

The following report was written by Pete Jones (back from his holiday!)

On Nigel’s rink, with Mike W, Barry, and Dave S, we seemed to be building a solid lead, 7-4 after 10, but it became a lot tighter until 3s on ends 15 and the last secured the win, 14-10. There were several shots of note, but particularly Barry’s wick on the last end!

On Ian’s rink, with Dave H, Rick and Pete, we raced into a 0-6 deficit after the first 2 ends, but then 7 steady, if unspectacular, ends brought us back into contention. After trading a couple of 3s, we finally edged it 15-13.

On Nicky’s rink, with Jake, Bruce (making a welcome return) and Derek (making his 2nd league appearance this season-no report last week), we were in control throughout, and a 4 on the 16th made absolutely sure of the win.

This was a great result, and very much down to the supportive ethos within the club, meaning that we can put out a strong NE team every week. Every single player contributed to this result.

Table now published , we have 69 points and are in first place , but Page park are hot on our heels with 68 points .
