Five Arches 61 (0pts) Haverfordwest 110 (14pts)
4th June 2016
After the previous week disappointing performance against Milford, we were hoping for a confidence boosting performance against Haverfordwest. However this was not to be, we were comprehensively beaten on all four rinks. First up on rink 1 , in front of the pavilion, Gerald and his rink of John, Mike and Neil were in a tight match for the first six or seven ends but gradually the Haverfordwest rink began to pull away. They lead by 5 shots after 10 ends, 8 after 15 and finally ran out winners by 31 shots to 15.
Next up on rink 2, Simon , supported by late substitutes Dave and Tony and Ben had a slow start but battled back to be level after 10 ends. However the wheels fell off in the second half , scoring only 3 but conceding 22 shots, they lost by 31 shots to 13. Captain Ashley and his rink of Viv, Steve and Dai were never quite in touch with the Hafod rink, trailing by 4 shots at tea , they never got any closer and finally succumbed by 23 shots to 15. Finally on rink 4, Webby with Ken, Johno and Beano fought back from a slow start to be leading by 1 shot on the 13th end. However a couple of poor ends enabled the Haverfordwest rink to ease ahead and win by 25 shots to 19. Overall a disappointing performance against a strong Haverfordwest team. Special mention must go to (very) late substitutes Dave and Tony for stepping in and helping the team out. Next up away to Saundersfoot.
