Five Arches 66 Whitland 104 (Five Arches 2 pts Whitland 12)
25th July 2015
After Tuesday's fantastic win away to Haverfordwest, hopes were high for another good result for the Five Arches. However we were soon brought back down to earth by a strong Whitland team. On rink 1, Ashley and his rink of Dai, David and Ken played a tight game against Steve Reese up until the 14th end , afterwards the Whitland foursome went into overdrive scoring 17 shots in the remaining 7 ends to run out comfortable winners by 31 shots to 14. Rink 2 saw Ben and his rink of John, Jon and Steve play well again. They stormed off to lead by 20 shots to 2 at 10 ends and fought off a great comeback by Dan Jenner and his rink to win by 24 shots to 18. Captain Ben and his rink of Roger, Tony and the returning John Cully were involved in a tight game on rink 4. Leading by 9 shots to 7 at tea, the game edged back and forth with the Whitland rink eventually clinching the game by 22 shots to 17. Finally on rink 5, Simon with Mike, Kevin and Neil had a day to forget, trailing by 12 shots to 7 after 10 ends, the Whitland rink steeped up a gear in the second half to win by 33 shots to 11. Next game, home to Pendine on Saturday 8th August.
