Five Arches 65 (3pts) Pembroke Dock 78 (11pts)
9th July 2016
After a good win in the first match of the season at Pembroke Dock, the Five Arches had hoped to pick up a few more points in the home game against them , however this was not to be. Rink 1 saw Webby and his rink of Ken, Kev and Beano have a close game against wily Brian Dowling. Close all through the game , the Pembroke Dock rink edged it by 15 shots to 11. On Rink 2 , Neil assisted by John, Mike and TP had an even closer game, leading by 3 at tea, the Pembroke Dock four fought back to lead by 3 themselves going into the last end. However fine play by the Five Arches lads allowed them to pick up 3 shots and tie the match.
Captain Ashley and his rink of Simon, Viv and Dai Lloyd rocketed off at the start of the game leading by 6 shots at tea and 13 shots after 14 ends. The Pembroke Dock rink led by Richard Jones then fought back to close the gap but the Five Arches hung on and edged a fine 21 shots to 16 win. Finally Ben and his gang of Roger, Johno and Steve had a tough day at the office, trailing by 7 shots at tea, they never really got into the game and lost by 26 shots to 12. A disappointing result but all credit to the Pembroke Dock boys. Next game Haverfordwest away.
