Pendine 66 (4pts) Five Arches 76 (10pts)
18th June 2016
On a sunny spring day , the Five Arches travelled to Pendine hoping to carry on the improved performance at Saundersfoot the previous week. On rink 2, Gerald and his rink of John Mike and Beano had an up and down day. They started well pickings up 2 counts of 4 shots to lead by 15 shots to 6 at tea. However an inspired fightback by Mal Evans' rink had clawed the deficit back to only 2 on the 18th end and by winning the remaining three ends , they ran out winners by 22 shots to 17.
On rink 3 Ashley and his rink of Viv, Kev and David had a tremendous start and led by 18 shots to 3 at the tea interval. The second half of the game was more even but the Five Arches rink won comfortably by 25 shots to 11. Ben and his rink of Roger, Tony and Steve had the opposite game to Gerald's rink, losing by 10 shots to 4 at tea. The rink rallied and won the last 9 ends to win by 18 shots to 13. Finally out on rink 5, Webby ably supported by Ken, Bill and Simon had a close fought battle with Geoff Hale's Pendine rink, 2 shots down at tea, they led by a solitary shot on the 19th end only for the Pendine foursome to edge it over the last two ends to secure a 20 shots to 16 victory. A great win for the Five Arches, I don't think we have ever won at Pendine in the league before, perhaps the kick-start we need for this season.
