Match Report: Redland v Yate (A) 14/07/22

Won 61-43: 8 points

A very welcome 8 points in our Bristol & District League campaign.

On RKJ’s rink with Will, Trev and Calvin started in front but losing a few ends on the trot slipped behind to go 12-6 down, a spirited comeback got to level pegging at end 14, however the momentum couldn’t be maintained and we ended 14 17 down.

On Jim’s rink with the special ones’ (that’s Vince and Steve [Will please notice correct punctuation mark!]) and once again they seemed to have been put on the worst rink of the whole green, judging by the numerous complaints (I think they might be getting a bit paranoid?), but they can complain as much as they like if they carry on winning and this they did, picking up 3 fours and winning 11 ends to finish 27-10 up.

Over on Gerry’s rink with Larry, Dave and Kev went into a 8-0 lead, but were pegged back and at 11 ends were 12 all and in the game  we were only 4 up overall, but picking up a 4 were back in front with Jim’s rink powering ahead the game was won. The question remained could we get maximum points?. Roger was just pipped at the end, but Gerry’s rink managed to win the last 3 ends and the rink ended 20-16 up.

As I said at the start, a useful result.

Important week ahead, Top Club Saturday, Clarence Tuesday and League Thursday, let’s hope we are on a winning roll……

PS It’s been pointed out to me that I didn’t thank Trev for his support both on Monday and on Tuesday – thank you Trev!
