Match Report 5: 22 May-29 May

Wednesday NDL Home Match V Pippbrook

A cold and wet afternoon saw Dorking lose on two rinks and win on one.
A heavy rain shower did not disrupt play but made playing conditions difficult for both teams.
Dorking squeezed a final end win on rink 5 (Ray S, Vicky and Alan W) to break a 14-14 deadlock. Pippbrook took the other two rinks 17-14 and 22-15 giving them an overall points total of 53 to Dorking’s 44. So 8 points to Pippbrook and 2 to Dorking.
Well done Pippbrook.

Saturday ESL Away Match against Croydon

Well our luck had to change and change it did at Croydon MO ! But only for the Mens‘ games. The Ladies won comfortably and thoroughly enjoyed their game.
On the ESL games Peter H on rink 2 started off well with an early lead, but in the second half only won one end and ended well down. Rinks 3 and 4 were in contention right up the last few ends, but couldn’t maintain the pressure. Rink 2 with David M lost by a shot in spite of John B getting 2 shots in the final end. Rink 4 with John S were one down in the penultimate end and gave away 2 shots, so ending 3 shots down.
All in all, great hopes were dashed and we came way with nil points to their ten. Final shots total 41 to 57. There was a dramatic call in the penultimate end on rink 3, when two bowls could not be separated by the number 3s. The umpire was called upon to use callipers and after measure and re-measure Croydon were awarded the shot. This meant we had to get 3 points and despite John’s 2 shots David couldn’t get more. That’s bowls! All very exciting stuff.
