Five Arches 44 (0 pts) Haverfordwest 112 (14pts)
10th July 2016
It's hard enough going to play in Haverfordwest at the best of times but to go there with not enough players is a bit suicidal. With a number of absences, we were forced to play with three triples and only one full rink. On rink 1 , Neil and his teammates John and TP played superbly against Richard O'Leary and his rink, only losing by 21 shots to 15 after the 25% reduction for playing a triple. Dai Spencer and his rink of Roger, Joe and Johno had a torrid time on rink 2. 16 shots behind at tea, they battled bravely but succumbed by 37 shots to 9.
Beano , together with father and son, Tom and Kev led at the tea interval by 10 shots to 5, unfortunately , the 2nd half was a complete reversal and they finally lost by 21 shots to 8 (25% reduction ). Ashley and his teammates , Steve and Viv had a similar game on rink 4, even at the tea interval and then a battering in the second half to eventually lose by 33 shots to 12. Onwards and upwards they say, next game home to Milford.
