June 19th 2016
In complete contrast to the previous day, this game was played in appalling weather, wet and windy , not the best conditions to play bowls but the Five Arches battled through to another important victory.
Ashley, replacing holiday bound Ben , assisted by Roger, Tony and Steve had a tightly fought contest on rink 3. One shot separated the team at tea and with his last bowl , Fishguard skip Davo won the match for his rink by 17 shots to 16. On the next rink, Gerald , backed up by Neil, Mike and John mastered the conditions , always in the lead they eventually ran out comfortable winners by 18 shots to 11. Unbeaten skip Dai , returned to the fold, and once again won. Well supported by Viv, Kev and David , they showed distain for the conditions to romp away by 24 shots to 14. Out in the murk of rink 6 , Webby with Johno, Ken and Simon had a close fought match once again. One shot behind with 2 ends to play , they just lost out to fine bowling by the home rink by 16 shots to 12. Another fine away win, we have won 3 out of first 5 away fixtures. Next up Whitland at home on Saturday at 1pm.
